Fish boy nailed it, LMB. most people dont get to see them at this size because they are not "catchable" size yet. But after handling a few thousand every year it becomes easily apparent!

Well they fill the lake way up and when it goes back down you have a bunch of fish stuck. There are a bunch of dried up ones poor fellers

We have a few flood control impoundments here in CT and they fill way up in the spring when it rains and the rivers come up. Then during the summer when its hot and dryer they slowly draw it back down. ecological effects are good and bad Id say... however ours never really dry up. they just loose acerage and depth.

Sounds like something similar out by you, or maby hydroelectric storage, or just a pond with little to no inflow of water that drys up lol!

The fish getting caught as the water goes down sounds kind of sad until you think about the total picture. We favor fish, of course but then there are lots of good about the fish that are stuck. It helps to lessen the chance of the less smart fish passing on their genes. It also helps to feed all the other creatures like birds, crawdads, and even the ants. Long story short is that we are all food in the long run.

100% Large Mouth Bass, I'm an avid fisherman and have caught my fair share of them, but never with that kind of amazing coloration!!!!
