    does it take to change....

    wait... that's not the question.

    seriously, how many dead fish would it take to be considered a fish kill? we are new to boating the ohio and ky rivers and every time we go out we see at lease a dozen scattered around. is that normal?

    Not long ago around here in Richmond,a local pond had a fish kill of over 400 fish.the DNR siad it was caused by either some kind of chemical that seeped into the water .what a shame.......:embarassed:

    ok, thanks ya'll. guess i won't worry about it then unless we see a lot more at a time. just seems a shame cause some of them are gorgeous. on the sandbank at hampton's lane the other day there were 2 skeleton's and a half rotten, all cats tween 12 and 18 inches. saw a largemouth bass floating in the ky coule of weeks ago and he was almost 2 feet.

    and we haven't been able to catch anything good all year :tounge_out:
