Hello all, long time reader, first time poster! Just got back into fishing this year. Got a float setup and have been using it and bank fishing. Got a lot to relearn!
Anyway, I guess I'm a little confused about the talk of "saving" Ilsanjo? I've been fishing it from the bank a few times over the summer, I've had great luck and the fish are fat and healthy. (just fished it on Weds, got 5 to the bank in less than 2 hours. best day is 13 to the bank in the same time frame)
There's plenty of food, frog's, crawdads, small fish, etc ... It's not like there's dead fishing floating everywhere ... I'm not an expert, but I seriously doubt the lake will dry all the way up before winter sets in .... So, what's the fuss?
I understand wanting to get some big bass in there, why not just truck some Florida hogs in after the rains fill the lake? Or is "saving" the lake the only way this can happen?
If the lake gets drained, the bottom scraped, then wait for the rain to fill it, wait for the food chain to reestablish itself, and then restocked, isn't that a lot of work and money? And, aren't we talking a couple of years before it's fishable again? Not that I'm against it, I'm just not understanding the reasons why?
