Possibly Blood worms coming off the bottom.

I might be plankton too. I get this on my Vex at night in certain spots. Its just the plankton rising off the bottom at night. And how I know that is b/c I have a underwater camera to look at the plankton floating in the water off the bottom.

But like joe said it may also be the outer edge of you cone. The way to tell is if the fish move out (if they ever do) you should see the plankton rising atleast 5' off the bottom.

I dont really know for sure.
But I think that in shallow water the most of the plankton will only rise at night and go back down to the bottom during the day. But in deeper water like 30' or more there isnt that much light penetration so they will stay about a foot off the bottom or less during the day then at night they will rise up off the bottom. And why they do this, If I remember right from biology the light has some effect on them, they dont like it so the night is their prime time.
I also think they rise in clusters. Certain parts of the lakes are different too. Some spots will be thicker than others. Why? I dont know.

Maybe someone can help me out on this b/c I dont know that much about plankton either.

    • I'm no bird expert, but I'd like to think one of those big neon signs that lights up orange with "OPEN" on it, would help!!
    • Swap the wild bird seed for sunflower chips. Goldfinches love it!
    • Probably 10-15 years. At least.
    • At first glance, I was going to ask if the circus came to town.  LOL.    Really, there is a bird visible there in the photo.    How long has this arrangement been in place?  I ask, since it does take awhile for the birds to find the new feeders.  
    • Another summer with few birds. Anybody see any problems with this feeder assortment? I have 1 or 2 Oriole pairs when I had dozens last year. I have a couple catbirds. I have nuthatches galore like everyone. Purple finches are still around. Also have cardinals like last year. I did have 1 Indigo Bunting but no neat/unusual visitor birds even passing thru. More red-wing black birds than before. No hummers. No goldfinches. No grosbeaks.  I've read house sparrows chase things away and I do have a quite a few but not infested by any means. Lots of blue Jays. Very few of the assorted bigger blackbirds. Haven't seen a cat prowling around hardly all year either. Feeders are kept well stocked (safflower,thistle, premium wild bird seed, black sunflower, grape jelly, & hummer juice) and clean with fresh seed but none of my favorite birds I mentioned. That PVC pole hasn't had a squirrel figure it out for at least 2 years and the couple that did aren't talking. Is this too much too close together? Any suggestions?
    • Dang...  I just passed through Ely on Sunday and glanced at the store, thinking about him.  Quite the character.  No more rides in the Pope Mobile. 🙁   Rest in Peace Sir Maki.   Thanks for posting @leech~~
    • The steep sides on shore continue and drops off pretty fast.  A good peecentage of the pond is 8-10.  I saw one spot that was 11 foot.     The neighbor says it has springs and it took a bit longer to get walkable ice than it should have considering the size.  I had been out on a couple smaller metro lakes last winter, figured it had to have been frozen pretty good.  Two steps on the pond and fell right through. It didn't seem to suffer from any winterkill last winter.  It doesn't get a lot of weeds.     Still working on a fish survey.  I can confirm that there are big goldfish and bullheads.  I have seen some pretty good size swirls around dusk making me wonder if there aren't a few bass in there.
    • How deep is it?  May be they would care if you drop a few bass and sunnies in it?  😉
    • There are other houses on the pond, nobody has a dock though.  I don't think my neighbors would care, I kinda ran it by the guy on one side.  Because the county plat map has the pond divvied up between 8 different properties on the street, I would think that technically taking a kayak around the pond would be trespassing.  Nobody has complained though and during the winter there were skaters and people running their dogs all over it and nobody asked me for permission.  Not that I care at all.   I don't need a Hatfield / McCoy problem with the neighbors, but at the same time it's my property.  If I had a McMansion on Crystal Lake in Bville nobody could or would complain about me putting a dock out.
