say i have herd on the news of some of our local lakes getting bad summer kill. even the bigger lakes like tonka have been stressing out. but anyone hear any offical news on the river. ive seen tons of dead fish floating recently. the other night we saw the shore littered with dead shad, crappies(rarish on the river), sheepheads and all sorts of odd stuff. I would normaly not think much of that except that after casting my line out, it slowly got loaded up with dead carcases!!!! at one point i had 3 fish hung on my line disintergrating into pieces!!! what it up. and my thoughts are that the bite this year is much less than previous years!!
