Have been receiving reports from some friends that there was a massive shad kill throughout the Tennessee River. Anyone seen anything or been affected?

I heard Dr. Dickel has been fishing alot on the Tn river and when he takes a whizz from the boat, most of the fish die laughing.......that could be it......

Yes there has been a massive shad kill on the KY lake portion of the TN river.

Its the probably the best excuse I've heard for the pitiful sauger bite recently.

We had one nice catch just before the cold weather and now - nothing. How long will it take to straighten out?

As long as they've been down, I'd say the sauger will turn around soon. I've always had better luck at catching big sauger in February anyway. I'm hearing reports of big sauger well into March in most years but by then I'm in bass mode.

There was about a 4 day stretch just before that big rain a couple weeks ago that the sauger were on fire according to a few people I've talked to. The guy at Cuba Landing yesterday said the most he'd heard anybody catching in the last few days was 4. \:\( Which is why I crappie fished.
