Positive day with a couple of concerns

got out today & had some success with a couple of big largemouth. Two over 5lbs but with the wind its was tough to control the boat . Was concerned with the amount of dead sunfish I spotted. I would say at least 50 or more . So I could only imagine how many in the entire reservoir has. the DEP said the treatment they did in recent years to eradicate the Hydrilla wouldn't effect the fish/ hurt them
, it obviously has . There is no vegetation to be found & the fishing has been slower than previous years.

Nice bass BTW.
Strange that no other fish species were floating. There must be crappie, perch, catfish, small bass and others in that lake, but only floating sunfish bodies? Did it happen in other years?
Doubt the DEC will investigate any time soon unless there's a connection to recent human consumption and illness.
