I was looking at an aqua view on leech this weekend and noticed these crater looking things on the bottom. Could it have been maybe eelpout burronwing a hole or looking for food?????

How big were the craters? Could you tell? I know perch will dig down and try to "fluff up" some goodies from the bottom to eat. I'm also interested to hear what others have to say.

Fish on!

Two years ago my son and I were fishing perch in Traders Bay on Leech Lake, I had the camera down and we were watching all the perch on the bottom, all of a sudden they began to scatter, the funny thing is we saw at 5-6 of them dive into the mud on the bottom and a northern came cruising in. The northern hit my little jig and bit it off right away and swam off. Pretty soon we see the mud stir up on the bottom and here come the perch that "buried" themselves in the mud. It was the goofiest thing I'd ever seen.

I do not know the answer for sure, but I have my own theory. I also SCUBA dive and see these "craters" on the bottom. I usually see them in bars or drop offs that make good fishing spots. My guess is that anchors have been dropped and made the craters. Since there is no current at 20 feet down to remove or fill in the divots, these craters will accumulate over a number of years. I could be wrong, but that is my best guess.
