  • Fish Kill On Pond

    Right after Hurricane Irene came threw I thought I might do a little Bass fishing. But when I got to the pond I found 5 nice size Bass floating on top of the water. Their eyes were popped out of their head. It looked like they had no oxygen. I will post pics in a few. Anybody else have had this happen after Irene?

    All of the limbs and leaves that get blown into the water use the oxygen in the water to decompose. It also can be from alot of rain water messing with the ph levels in the water.

    The pond was real low and the grass grew up really tall. Then with all the rain it got to full and that's when the fish started swimming in the grass. You can see where they have made paths through it. I just hate to see the fish die out like that.

    Lake Jordan had a huge stripped bass kill due to the heat of the water taking the oxygen.
