Believe it or not, I actually tried yesterday. Went for a couple hours and didn't catch a single BG.
Before the fish kills and cast netters, we'd catch bunches of those dinner plate gills.
I think the fish kill hurt, but I believe the cast netters have destroyed the spawning areas. They are out there every day, and they're all over the lake. Every inch of that 2-8' water has been drug and drug.
