    No that is an air horn.....Is this the thermocline?Is this the thermocline?

    Haha. Good pic. When that obvious there is no point in fishing deeper than the thermocline. What state?

    I see this a lot this time of year up here and always though it was thermocline.If it stays there at night yes, if it disappears at night its probably plankton. This is what I read on another forum. Easy way to check drop a lively minnow down in it for 15-20 minutes if it comes up dead its thermocline.

    The plankton and debris starts to align first in the thermocline but it is not a very fast process. and all is not lost below that line immediately but rest assured it is coming. For all intent and purposes that is where its setting up and I would not spend much effort fishing below there. An O2 meter will show you too. Schools of bait tell the story too.

    This is midlake on Clarks Hill Lake in Georgia. We caught a bunch of stripers across the lake from there in 20-25ft.
    Thanks for confirming my thoughts guys!!

    Another thing to keep in mind is different species of fish respond differently in low oxygen situations and can tolerate more change albeit they all slow down there or leave.

    I'm not an expert but are you guy's referring to th thin line at 18' or the distortion at 32' as being the thermocline? Scott

    The line at 18' was a downline with a herring on it. We were hoping there were some hungry stripers there around all that bait!
