What's up,Mudhole?

Hope your trip to Fla. was a goodun...I think with the Blues comin' off the spawn,things should be pickin' up...soon...I hope...
Kerr Dam seperates Kerr from Gaston.Gaston is downstream.Directly below the dam is the tailrace area,which has an offshoot stream that forms an island(you may have heard KerrLake called "Buggs Island ".Many locals call it that...anyway,the flow into Gaston sometimes fluctuates greatly.One of the theories I think possible,is that those stripers got in that small creek,chasin' shad,and got trapped.They would then expire from low o2 levels and were flushed out into the main lake [email protected] the next opening of the dam.Either that or somethin' happened that I don't want to think about.According to reports from a reliable source Va. Dept.of Game/Inland Fisheries was called and supposedly the stripers were the only type fish found.

Guys,
Still haven't heard of the cause yet...haven't been any problems with shad kills or for that matter any other instances at all...mmmm?Don't have any algae blooms although hydrilla is a nuisance to some and a blessing to fishermen.We've had a prob starting with "gill maggots" in some of the striper population.:(
