Here's a long overdue update on the weed killing inquiry:
I've exchanged a couple emails with Paul Winkle but nothing pertaining specifically to the weeds. He said Jeffco holds the reigns on managing the lake so they should have the answers.
Well....um.....Yes, that is the ball behind me, clearly in my court, with a thick layer of dust on it and maybe a cobweb or two. This might be a good time to confess that I can procrastinate with the best of 'em. I could try and blame it on the dang dog for eating my computer, but, if he was still around he'd be about 26-years-old now. I'll get on this directly.
As far as trying different approaches/strategies/terrain, etc. I have done this and will continue searching. I've had a little success early in the day but no breakthroughs, that's for sure. We've also focused more of our attention on the saugeye and met with limited success. Mostly, we were just lucky enough to be there twice this year, on evenings when the saugeye were unusually aggressive. Total coincidence.
One other thing I should make clear is that I've seen no evidence that any harm has come to the fish as a result of the weed killer. In fact, based on the bass I was catching routinely back in late spring/early summer, The only conclusion I can draw is that the average bass has gotten larger
