Shad Kill ? Oh yes indeed.


Recommended Posts

Last time these extreme low temperatures lasted this long the Threadfin Shad kill was HUGE !  And these lows are setting new records. -7 F this morning at Baxter.

Walking out on a Dock it looked like the bottom was covered in Silver Dollars from all the dead Shad. 

The Lake is steaming like a cooling Lake does in mid-Winter at a Coal-fired Power Plant.

Did a little scouting this morning to find some thick balls of shad (hoping to find feeding bass).  The first picture is fairly shallow (28ft) and a very thick group of shad. There was a moderate

Does that mean jerk baits for big browns on Taney?

You better be there quick.  When so many come through, the fish gorge on them and then shut down.  You'll see trout swimming around with shad hanging out of their mouth and they won't bite anything.  If you ain't first, you're last!!!😂

Huge kills are neither good for the Rock or Taney. Moderation like in most things is the key. We want some but not rafts of them. 

4 degree was my low at the Lodge this morning. We had 1 degree for a low yesterday. We have not seen a minus number yet.

Went to the dock first thing this morning.  The last 20% of North Indian locked up.  The old timers (meaning having lived here much longer than me) tell me that they have never seen this before here.  These are the last two docks on the north end of North Indian Creek if you know the area.  Water depth is 30 ft. at those buoys.

Not sure if this is Global Warming or a Polar Vortex but I'm sure the weather men have a weather b____.  (Don't want to censored).

I could stand on the ice under the dock.

BEAUTIFUL.
