I guess with all of the wildlife highs there are bound to be some lows. We found one of our big bass dead in the pond on Monday. We were so sad. We had two huge bass and now I guess we are just down to one. We need to find a place to buy a couple more. Anyway, we fished him out because we wanted to see if anything was obviously wrong with him and we wanted to see how big he really was - we never really got to see them up close as they always hung around near the bottom of the pond. We didn't see anything obviously wrong with him - so I don't know what the cause of death was - poor guy...............he will definitely be missed!!
