Catfish Spawn........Baby Catfish Galore

We needed a break from the flood repair work yesterday so we decided to go out fishing for a bit, we didn't really expect to catch anything, with the flooding and the weather we have been having, to say it has not been a good fishing year would be an understatement. But it is always nice to get out on the water with coffee and rolls. I am very glad that we went as we saw something neither of us had ever seen before. A catfish spawn! There were literally thousands of little catfish, the water was covered with large schools of tiny little catfish! We watched this phenomenon for over an hour, it was fascinating.

Wow IGW, what a cool thing to have seen while out boating! I'm glad you had the time to get those shot and you can get those in future years for dinner. :-)

We don't see those things being stuck in the middle of the city... so your perspective is always welcome!

So in a few years LOTS of good fishing. I bet it was fascinating and I would've sat and watched it too.
