Hey guys, been on the forum for awhile, new to the catfish section though. Got a question, just bought a house on Amon Carter lake, set out some jug lines in front of my house in 12 to 16 ft of water in the evening, checked the jugs the next morning and caught 5 or 6 cats but they were all dead. The water temp is in the high eighties, never seen that before, is it to hot or lack of oxygen in the thermocline or what. Just wondering if anybody has had this happen to them. Thanks in advance for any help.

Lack of oxygen in the thermocline if you are setting them too deep. Hot water holds less oxygen and the lines need to be checked hourly in this heat or the fish will ruin.
