A little surprising since I have seen ZERO dead crappie following the limited kills at Lake Waveland. I had assumed that they were not as susceptible as some species to low concentration rotenone

Waveland is still full of golden shiners but Traps don't work for me like they used to. Neither do Spooks; I attribute both to the loss of aquatic vegetation used as ambush cover. Or maybe sunspots
I do not recall what year BASS went to the Elite format but I am thinking that the field size drastically decreased after that time. If last place is 250th back when and 100th now that is going to skew your data isn't it?
USA Bassin had a later schedule this yr I believe, probably missed the big bags of spring. Lack of vegetation makes the lake fish a lot smaller than it used to and the community holes get pounded even harder. And, don't forget the spring fish kill, lost a few hundred 3-6# fish which I believe is significant on a lake of this size. I believe this would have been "the year" except for that event
For what it's worth, I don't believe carp have returned to Waveland and the vegetation is almost completely gone, probably due to a number of factors.Excess spraying and bad zooplankton/bioplankton ratio maybe being 2. I believe bass spawning can be heavily impacted due to excessive siltation caused by carp. Lake Holiday locally seems to be an example of this

Seems like I only find the blue ones this time of the year, makes me wonder if the blue color is a seasonal color phase? Locally, the mink seem to be on a crawfish diet, watch them diving for them a lot

Man, you could have waited to put this up until after I fish there tomorrow!!!!! But I have no idea where that spot is either

went with that logic couple yrs ago when I bought a new Citica and regretted it, heavy and noisy. Like "new Coke" sometimes they mess up a good thing! Hopefully they fixed it with the re-do over and you like it
A half case of beer and a string of F bombs will not make loading the boat any easier either
