Howzit Guys
This weekend I fished boskop near Potch. Wasnt a great days fishing but think the weather played its part. I was a bit bothered by a large amount of dead or dying carp. Not that I mind to much that the carps are dying, I still find it concerning that there are so many that is dead and wondered if anyone has some insight, as this is one of the cleanest bodies of water I know. They seem to be the only species affected (very weird). I must have seem 30 fish around the dam that was dead already. I saw a couple more that was on their way. The one you could see had an issue with its eyes, it was poping out, and you could see it was blind already, I could tap it with my fishing rod and it would just slowly cruise off. I took a pick of one floating by.

August, max size for images now is 480 pixels wide so I have resized it and include here. If you upload a pic from your pc it's not that serious a problem and resizes automatically. Rip.

The Big carp in Groenvlei die off after their spawn and also when the water level rises, possibly something to do with a change in Ph maybe??

Also saw some big dead blue kurper and a bass which was at least a week old. Notice how the mud on the bottom of Groenvlei stinks so much!?
