Dang. Would have figured they'd have tested it out some before hand. If it's all just cus of the cold water that's wiite interesting too. Wonder when Hope did all his tagging?? Kinda cool to see that 1 of the bass was eaten by some eagles!

Hope they figure the process out as I was really interested in how it would turn out.

Crazy too read and hard to believe that every one of the fish died. Hopefully the warmer water is the ticket.

Hope they get it figured out... really need to do some major studies at the lake formerly known as Fork to see why it’s become so awful!! Toledo Bend Fishing got tough because of the water levels, Cajun factor, and Bassmaster magazine naming it #1 in the nation a couple of times. Same death sentence Rayburn has been issued. I look forward to, at some point, seeing results of these tracking type studies.

Definitely Team Ziplocks fault. Probably filleted them and threw the carcasses back in the lake or in the woods....

Very interesting. They will get it figured out. Todd is a good guy that cares about his work. Who knows, maybe they even learn something new about fish stress in the winter that can help us all do a better job of taking care of our tournament fish. I think studies like this need to be done on many lakes across the state At least a few in every region. If they need more of the $175 tags to expand these types of studies, just ask for donations that go to their purchase. They would be amazed at the number of anglers and organizations willing to donate to such a study.

From the article it sounds like some sort of fungal infection. I highly doubt all those fish could have been caught an filleted in such a short period of time. Love to see they are back to doing these studies though. Anyone have any idea exactly what kind of equipment they are using? I've been tempted in the past to try and find the equipment to run my own studies, but have never been successful in finding something practical.
