Fish Kill!

6 posts in this topic

Just returned from a afternoon cruise on Leech, many many dead whitefish, too many days of 75 to 82 degree water days, happens every once in a while, lack of 02 and cool water for this fish family.

Dave, have you noticed if these die-offs that occur this time of year effected your fishing? I like to night fish this time of year and the kick-off for my best fishing usually coincides with stories of die-offs on the big lakes.

Last night I was out trolling open-water with my kids and all the life I seen on the flasher was in a tight band from 22-24ft., some of the schools were huge, I pictured it like a hundred yard pancake of baitfish.

Can't say if I do or not? I'll have to take notice, I love pulling cranks at night this time of year, cooler and it is very productive, I troll shallower bars and flats so do not see much on the electronics but they are there! So far no dead tullibies just whitefish, I imagine they are next.

Dave, Saw you do a fly by on Hardwood, tried to run to the dock to catch you for a beverage but you were gone. That was some kind of wind on Friday night, got a little scary. Fishing was really good, pulling crankbaits between goose and hardwood. Dale B.

Wasn't the musky rampage happening when there was a big tullibee die off? At least all the tullibees and whitefish haven't been killed because you see it ever year. And I thought last year was pretty bad....

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.
