This recent underwater filming mission found big schools of bluegill, crappie, and bass loaded in a shallow main lake weed bed. Reduced snow and ice, coupled with melt, increases light penetration which spurs a recharge of oxygen in these areas. Whatever the case, the fish pushed shallow in big numbers for new feeding opportunities, quietly stalking about the reed bed forest. We find it fascinating how predator and prey intermingle in relative harmony. What are your thoughts?
