Don't know if I can answer your question,but whenever my lake is fertilized the bass just quit.Oh, you may catch the odd fish here and there but the bites are few and far between.I'm no biologist and certainly no pro,so I'm wondering myself what's up.Maybe some of our more experienced posters can shed some light on this topic.

Most people dont catch fish when the lake turns green from algee bloom. I can in in a couple lakes and I just flip a black/brown/amber jig with a green pimpkin trailer. Or crank the deep brush.

Other lakes i dont know as well harder to catch fish.

Nick go to a more powerful reel you wont get worn out cranking.

Hip I was out there the other day. It was amazing. Fox Lake had the biggest algae bloom I had ever seen. It has a visibility of almost nothing. Bennett wasn't bad. It just had quite a bit of lime on the surface. The bass were using it for shade. If you get next months Georgia Outdoor News you'll see my fishing report on Marbin Farms. But I'll give it to you early. I've been catching them on both lakes by throwing a Zoom Horny Toad without a weight and skimming it on top of the grass. I had to hold my rod high and reel in fast but the explosion that came out of the grass was worth the effort. Just cover every inch of the grass. The bass are in there feeding on the fry and anything else that swims buy. They were everywhere from 6 inches deep out to 5 ft, but they are scattered.

Hip, I just relized that in the background of my picture is the dam between Bennett and Margery and you were fishing on the other side of it. That was just after we met.

Hip, That's funny. I had a snake chase my boat around in circles the other day. I had to kick it into high to get away. Yea up shallow. Keep your rod tip high and start reeling before the frog hits the water so it won't sink into the grass. Stuff your Scum Frogs with small pieces of worm to give them some weight and make your casts longer.
