Decided to brave the sauna like conditions and fish my local lake.
They sprayed around a broadleaf herbicide (so the sign said anyway) right before Memorial day.
First coupla' days after there were lot's of dead crappie and a few nice size LMB.
Yesterday the whole lake shore were littered with dead decaying carp.
The whole place smelled like death!
The hot weather and I'm guessing everybody put out fertilizer on the surrounding homes caused ALOT of weeds
and floating algae.
Made fishing less than pleasant, but I threw my favorite Mepps and managed a few dink LMB's and lot's
of fiesty bluegill.
Found a spot where the gills were bedding(?) they were thick as mosquitoes and very active chasing each
other around. I fished till I got heat stroke and had to leave.
I guess it's a good thing the carp have been reduced, there were so many screwing up the fishing, churning
up the mud and all, I keep a can of corn in my car just in case, but I think I'll wait to go back til when all
the carnage is less evident.
