However, things didn’t go as planned. I had hoped to use the flat surf to get as many speckled trout as possible. The morning was beautiful. Not as much of an impact of oxygen-depleted ocean! “!”
The accompanying video and Darrell Schoppe’s Facebook post, which depicts a significant bass shoot at Quintana Beach close to Freeport, have gone viral.
He exclaimed,” From the Brazos River’s teeth, miles of dead fish could be seen heading south along Bryan and Quintana Beach.
He claimed that although the majority of fish were menhaden, there were also jack crevalle, redfish, a dozen predators, and speckled fish.

Lerrin Johnson, a spokesman for Texas Parks and Wildlife, said the following in an interview to CNN after the Kills & Spills Team Region 3 looked into what was going on along the beach.
When temperatures rise in the summer, bass kills like this are frequent, according to Johnson.
Fish cannot” breath” if there isn’t enough gas in the water, she continued.
Although some fish shoots might become frequent, this is. Quite a big one, especially considering how first summers it is. As soon as we hear more, we’ll have more information.
Please contact TPWD and email [ email protected ] with any photos, videos, or other information if you have information on this kill or others along the coast.
