FINALLY got out to pull traps late today.  The wind has been killing me!   We happen to be in a very BAD fish kill in Brevard County right now!  There are MILLIONS of dead fish of every specie floating up since I set pots out!  I was concerned and blowing as it was I pulled today anyhow!  Although the kill is evidently coming my way, today it isn't here yet.  I caught more fish than ever and they were very lively.  Only caught 2 decent sized blue crabs and one was pretty white bellied.  The rest were RIPE female peelers.  Numerically, not a bad set, but only ONE fat jimmy, so everything went back overboard.

I'm almost 69 yrs old and have seen red tide fish kills in the Chesapeake and Delaware Bays, as well as here in Florida all my life, but NEVER like this one.  The numbers are in the millions and everything from baitfish to trophy reds and trout!  Scientists are baffled, but I'll try to keep everyone posted!

Thanks for the report. We haven't had the fish kill up here yet but it's over in the Indian River.
I heard it's a cyano bacteria causing the kill. That's a toxic blue-green algae.

I have heard so many causes that I almost think obama said them!  BUT, so far, nothing "proveable".  I'll let ya know!

Dam ISIS is everywhere  shocked2
Sadly there are reports like this every year and some go unanswered  Huh The fish are victims of what man throws in the waters Hope they find the answers to this one or just sweep it under the Muddy Bottom Home of The Mighty Blue [curd],  Good Luck.
