My bet is it was a big ole snapper.
Yeah I seen pike do this murkier water just before attacking ducks like they are scanning the surface for prey
Northern will also come up and poke their head out of the water briefly. Saw one on lake Monona doing this this year as we were boating back to the launch. Kind of freaked me out a bit. It was a probably over 40 inches I would guess based on the size if the head.
Dogfish do this all the time. Have them in our pond. It’s common to be sitting on dock and see them do it.
Over where Otter Creek flows into the lake, we have seen a “creature “ surface with it’s head out of the water for just 4 or 5 seconds a couple times and then its gone. I swear the head looks like a dogfish but my wife thinks it’s a snake. Has anyone else experienced this?
With the water levels being so low the carp are pretty spooked when you go thru. And I haven’t seen any Asian carp or seen any recorded in the river which I hope never happens
I know there are Asian carp in the Illinois river. Have yet to hear any in the Rock yet. Let’s hope not they suck!
Saw a fish jump 3 times in my wake today. Anyone else ever experience that? Just hoping its not what I think it could be.
Thanks drifter. Tight Lines and be safe out there.
4 to 6 ft plenty of water to fish
