Fished Fayette today with friend Lloyd from daybreak til 2:00 pm. Water temp 85-88 degrees & level down about 8 inches. The story today was fish kill. The 1st spot we tried had hundreds of fish gasping for air...bluegill, bass, shad & tilapia. Caught "0" bluegill there, but hooked 2 huge tilapia. Moved all over the lake & saw dead fish everywhere. Mostly shad, bass, and bluegill floating everywhere. Not sure if the lake dropping 8 inches or the weather change had anything to do with it, or it's just a process lakes go through from time to time. Anyway, we still caught fish...ended up with 72 between the 2 of us all caught on gulp alive minnows. Bluegills are moving out from the reedbeds to deeper water. Most caught in the 4-8 ft range. Had a nice chat with Bob from Katy that was looking for some bluegill pointers. All fish released to fight another day...if they survive. [Linked Image]

Despite the fish kills Fayette keeps on turning out SUPER fish. Great post Steve and a super job guys! thumb



Side Note: I Would not think the front had anything to do with the kill off. Maybe the sudden dropping of the lake level was one of the factors. Just my two cents. 2cents

Good post vogey! Sad to hear about the fish kill. Guess it's mother natures way of thinning the herd


When you catch a fish you feel the door to happiness open

Nice post and fish. Good job. Hate the news of the fish kill! Hopefully it's a natural cause and not an environmental cause. hmmm



Side Note: I fished Fayette at least twice a year over the past five years and have never seen personally a fish kill! eeks

As always nice fish a nice report. Love seeing those Fayette catches.


Side Note: Good possibility either an algae bloom or a lake turn over caused the fish kill!

Golly....Hey J-Moe, we're missing a golden opportunity to set more records on Fayette. Other method records are there for the taking. Do you still Have your cast net, spear, maybe a snagging stick. Don't forget your Camera. banana
