Dead bass

Postby mojoe » Sat Sep 16, 2017 1:51 pm

Looks like the flooding rain from Irma has killed off loads of largemouths. Just a few bream mixed in. Disappointing!

Can someone please explain to me how lots of fresh water kills off bass like that?

Same thing here on the Withlacoochee river just north of 44. Sad to see.... And it smell like sewage on the river with the smell of dead fish mixed in... But I do have power now.
