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.

Beautiful fish. I wonder if DEC knows there was a sunfish mortality event, or if they could take some samples to see what killed them.
good point .I should contact them
