been seeing some large gatherings of carp (or buffalo) not sure which , on the surface of an area lake. the lake is 55 feet.-deep.....why are they gathered on the surface in a large school? Would they feed on corn or corn flake balls on the surface?? never seen this before.....what do you carp anglers think ?

Are the just milling around, or are they splashing? Carp will come completely out of the water sometimes. Buffalo are not so flashy. They tend to look more like a porpoise rolling on the surface.

That does not sound good. I have seen carp do that is water that has a poor oxygen content. That seems strange to me in a lake with deep water like you are describing. Whatever the case, I doubt that they are feeding.

Where is this located? Low oxygen IMO


PB flathead 34.5 lbs - I know it's small but it was still the record for Lake Travis when I caught it!
PB Blue 58.5 lbs jugline 43.5 lbs on R&R which was the other Lake Travis record when caught.
