Sheephead are dying by the 100s (if not 1000s) currently. Is this occurring in the other Great Lakes?
VHS is suspected as it doesnt seem to be affecting other species so far. Remember to sterilize your collecting nets and fishing equipment.

Do you have a link? Sheephead meaning drum?

Hello Matt, I don’t have a link but I saw numerous dead drum at Rocky River Beach Park. The next day it was in the local news detailing how widespread it was. I didn’t see any other dead species.
