Freshwater Fishing in Southeast Louisiana
Fish kill, how long before water is back to normal
Went look in the bayou Lafourche in the backyard yesterday and the fish were at the surface sucking air. I rescued one small socalait by hand and put in my 75 gallon bayou style freshwater aquarium. Beautiful addition. Today i put in the pirogue and went for a paddle. I saw big bass everywhere bearly hanging on. The water started smelling and turned to that blackish color. I notice all the socalait were dead and floating. The bass and perch were still hovering the surface. I hope some of those bass can make it. Beaks my heart to see the fish suffering like this. Anyone know how long it takes for the water to return to normal or if it'll get worse? Huricannes suck.
