Couple Gets Caught in the Weeds at Lake Kohlmier
The Heins’ trolling motor was no match for the thick weeds of Lake Kohlmier.

“The weeds just attacked that motor,” said Loraine Hein, sporting a sunhat and sunglasses.

On Wednesday about 10:30 a.m., Loraine and her husband, Jon, were out testing their new leisure boat when they got stuck in a bed of weeds on the south side of Lake Kohlmier near the boat landing, so she called for help.

Common Aquatic Bacteria Responsible for Fish Kill - Test results from fish sampling suggest the recent Spofford Lake fish kill resulted from the presence of a common aquatic bacteria combined with a time of year when fish were stressed from spawning activity and war water temperatures. Test results showed that no virus was present in the fish tested and that the bacteria found was Aeromonas Hydrophila. According to Fish Health Center Staff, this bacteria only becomes lethal to fish when there is another stressor to the fish. In some cases, the bacteria can infect a single fish and then multiply rapidly, causing a substantial fish kill.
