Fish Kills

The freshwater canals are getting down to dangerous levels now. A couple of places that I fish have only 1-2' of water left in them. If we don't start getting some rain I expect to see fish floating any day now. Reminds me of the winter fish kills we have up north. The oxygen levels have to be getting quite low. <(((((><

    I have been concerned about the neighborhood retention pond. The fish activity seems to be off with the lower water and I haven't had the success I had the last 2 years. I decided to get some bigger baits and fish for 5 lb+ fish, since I am getting a little bored with the 3-4 lb bass. I caught a 4.5 lb fish Saturday and she was fat and healthy, so I am no longer concerned. In fact, for this particular pond, the bass may be benefiting from the lower water.
