I know when it gets real cold they will swim sluggish on top making for some easy catching but I have never heard of it getting cold enough around here to kill them like that ??

Ive seen several freezes that slowed the fish down but never killed them. Sometime in the past I remember Perdido bay freezing out a ways and seeing fish looking like they were dead but when the water warmed ever so slightly they swam off. Theres more to this story.:boo

I will have to agree There Is something more going on here, I have lived here since 74 and remember the Perdido bay Freezing I went and got some of the fish That had died but just because they were caught in the ice and could not move to get Oxygen thought their gills I can not remember hearing of a fish kill because the water was to cold, Could be wrong But still sounds fishy to me Just one mans opinion!!

i live in murrells inlet s.c. about 700 miles from yall. our weather is a lot like your's, i check it often cause my daughter lives in ft. walton beach and a few times a year i come down and go fishing. yesterday the finger mullet started dieing un the inlet. the bottom is littered with 'em. i think the sudden temperature drop is the culprit. our mullet head south during most winters. this year has been kinda mildand they hung around a little to late... the pelicans ans seagulls hare happy though.

I know I am several states away but last January in Matagorda,TX it got really cold one weekend while we were down there wading..

The mullet and the trout were both washing a-shore from the cold...I am sure if it happens here it can there!!! Not everything is a conspiracy.cold water does kill fish.
