I'm very interested in the quality of our water here in Lake county as I too live off of Lake minneola, In August I alerted the water authority to large scale die off of some really big fish, when my duaghter and I and her friend went down to Lake Minneola to swim, we noticed several large fish on the shore line and several more floating out in the open waters, we opted not to swim in the lake since then, as we knew something was not right.
Please keep us up to date as to the water quality and I was told when I moved down here ten years ago that the Algae blooms were natural and if the winters were really mild that they were more prevelent in the up coming season, but if we had several good freezes during the winter months that the algae dies off and there's less of it in the coming summer months.
I don't know if that's true, after all someone told me love bug's were because of an accident in some lab some where, and when I went to I found out otherwise.
I'm a LIfe member of the N.A.F.C, Noth American Fishing Club, and my whole family fishes like crazy, I've caught some beautiful fish off this chain of lakes, my next question is are they safe to eat?
Thanks for keeping us up to date, concerned resident of lake county and the city of Minneola.
