[quote][/quote]Great BG and Hybrid Kenny. Your water looks a very pretty shade of green in those pictures.

But for whatever reason last year I had a bumper crop of SMB with no apparent reduction in FHM. So I'm interested to follow this and find out what you learn.

NEDOC, you've piqued my interest. Can you tell us more about your SMB and FHM experience in the thread on SMB? When I read this post I can't help but notice that FHM have persisted with your SMB in large numbers for 5 years.

Needless to say, the algae crash caused a domino effect that ended up killing a lot of fish..

One of the worst things for fish is sudden temp changes. That alone can kill fish and some species are less tolerant than others. When looking at fish and temperatures its not just their max and min lethal temps that are measured but also their ability to withstand sudden temp change. Remember fish are cold blooded and unlike us do not regulate temps as well.

Net samples for 2020 have began. Set nets last night and the first run today is in the books.
Day 1 doesn't usually tell much except today I caught 3 of my "small" saugeye...23" 24.75" and a 3rd just shy of 27"
wasn't expecting to see those!
I won't bore anyone with numbers but had many nice YP from 5 to 13.75" and still stuck in that 89-94 WR range.
My BG and BGxRES are pushing up to 9.25" and all Lepomis from today averaged 122% WR.
No big GSH, only 2 crawfish.
4 SMB from basically 12'-14.25". Wr on these is still showing high 110's
A few HSB stocked early spring but no specimens in nets yet.
6 days to go so anything can happen. I'll post any surprises and total data compilation of end of sets for thos besides myself that find this interesting.
A couple of picks to follow.
