It’s no fun playing among dead fish

Published 8:40 am Thursday, June 10, 2010

Just wondering if you folks are going to talk about all the dead fish floating around and washing up on the beautiful shores of fountain lake over the weekend?

I work in Minneapolis but was down in the area over the holiday. I was telling some friends at work how we were boating and playing in the water with complete disregard for the hundreds of dead fish floating among us. My friends at work knew I was country, but they didn’t know I was that country. No one could believe people were in the water! Can you fine folks do some hunting around and tell us all why?

Keep up the good fight.
