The state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries said Steven "Brad" Malcolm, 33, of Madisonville died while he was being taken to the hospital after the wreck Monday afternoon.

Two other fishermen on the bay boat were taken to the hospital with injuries. None of the people on the other boat were hurt.

LDWF agents said they would be handling the investigation into what caused the collision.
