Eeewww!

What do you think caused such a massive die-off? Is there anything left alive?

The only thing I can figure is with all the massive rain we got in the past 2 weeks all the new water shed brought in was oxygen deficient and with the low oxygen levels had a massive kill off, there are tens on thousands dead and the ones we seen swimming around, which there were thousands more didnt look like they had long before they reached the same fate. There were Grass Carp 50-60 pounds, big carp and buffies..Everything but the Gar, There fine!!

Dang Darin, I knew you were a helluva shot... BUT you shouldn't leave all of your fish on the shore and to float!

Sorry to hear about your honey hole though.....Buddy that's gonna stink a bit!

I think I can smell that from my house in St. Louis County!!

It shouldn't be hard to find your honey hole.

You need to show me where that hole is so not so many of them end up like that.

The heat we have been playing probably played a part too. Hot water holds less oxygen, and fish need more oxygen when the water is hot, because their metabolism goes up. And like you said, the rain probably washed a lot of stuff into the water that rots and decays, and the bacteria doing the decaying uses up O2 too.
