Spratt dead zone

went on fact finding mission... sunrise to 730 am not one rise seen on surface anywhere. No strikes on gill .. no action on anything.. I made approx 500 casts in 3 hrs... nothing. Too bad. This place was a great bass fishery just 3 yrs ago. It will take 3 times that long to bring it back to that good ...if ever..sad.

"I fished for three hours and caught nothing, that must mean the lake is completely dead"

Unless they prvide some structure in this body of water.... the bass won't have a chance

It's gonna be more than a couple of years before anything "catchable" shows up...Sent an email to Thorntons open space and parks dept..structure and vegetation are needed..There are countless dead trees around the immediate area they need to submerge and oxygen.ate the water. I have seen this before.

Warrior - sometimes you just have to be patient for answers on forums as well as fishing results. That pond/lake was recently drained, re-filled and re-stocked. While it was empty, it revealed a substantial structure which now sits under water. The fish there have just been stocked there, so don't expect this to be a very good water for a while.

Don't get mad - it's sport fishing, not subsistence living.
