Probably a combination of factors. As you know there are lots of options for dux right now with water being everywhere, especially where you are. Also, with your pond being 75% last year I'm guessing more of it was shallow. Could be wrong there, but in the drought I had a place that was usually too deep for anything but divers. With the combination of there being few options and the water level being just right on the majority of the pond it was on fire. Last thing, there was a decent push at the very end of the split, but the best is yet to come. Hopefully they'll find ya and more are on the way.
