    THERMOCLINE

    The striper are seeking thermal refuge from the warm water above the thermocline. There is good dissolved oxygen at all depth until July.

    THERMOCLINE

    Yes you can often see the thermocline but I don't think that is on this picture. There is no thermocline right now as the water is homogenized top to bottom. That is likely plankton or sometimes a mud line shows like that. A thermocline starts to develop in the early spring in still waters where the water can stratify. It starts on the surface as the cold winter water is warmed and warm water stays on the surface and cold water sinks. The thin layer on the surface gets thicker as the summer continues to warm it. The only oxygen entering the water is from the atmosphere when cold water sinks and caries it down at "lake turnover" in Sept. & Oct at this latitude. The dissolved oxygen is depleted in the lower level below the thermocline slowly throughout the summer from respiration and decay of organic material.

    CHEROKEE LAKE RECORD STRIPER

    I have caught a lot of fish on Cherokee with many being over 20 pounds but 27 is my largest and the largest I have put on the scale is 34 pounds. The old retired TWRA creel clerk Don Seal said the largest he had weighed was 36 pounds. I have landed several fish in other area lakes over the years that exceed 50 and one over 60 pounds. The TWRA office in Morristown has one of my fish on the wall in the high 50's.

    FLOCK OF SEAGULLS

    Here but normally mid November before the gulls show me much. Distance and action are important.
