Perch Die Off

Postby Maxstachio » Apr Sun 09, 2017 8:16 am

Caught this story on CBS as well as a guy documenting it on YouTube. Anybody else see or hear or experiencing this anywhere else? Is it an isolated case?

I'm assuming this is isolated to the 87th street slip and not a lake Michigan die off, but if anybody else has information .... thanks in advance for your help.

I am not sure if this is a die off or some strange spawning behavior. I have seen 2 other videos on Facebook as well. They don't appear to be dead, they are still boiling around like they are being chased by something.
Keep fishing and keep smiling! Take care of one another folks!
