SAN ANTONIO - A fisherman posted video on YouTube of what appeared to be a massive fish kill along the Texas coast in Matagorda.

The fisherman, who posts as the 'Fish Whisperer' said it looked like millions of fish washed up on the shores of a river channel in the area.

Mostly menhaden were in the area, along some larger game fish.

Commenters speculated on what may have caused the fish kill, including fertilizer run-off and algae blooms.
