Fishing Mystery

I have a question & was wondering if anyone could field it. Last year while fishing at night we would be trolling & all of the sudden there would be thousands of fish or something coming to the top of the water and just make a vibrating action on the water. We could never see what they were though. It seemed like all the surface water would be vibrating & making little splashes. It has happened to us more than once & on alot of different lakes. What are these and should I be catching fish when they are around?

all i can think of that maybe it was a big school of minnows brought to the top by fish or were just resting up on the suface. just a thought. Anybody else.

yep, I've seen that before too.

Believe it or not, they're bullheads.

At least they were when it happened to me.

I think the fishing gods were trying to tell you something. Did you troll over these spots?

I have came across this a few times. Everytime
it has been shiners. I think the boat spooked them when it was going past but other times in the same area I belive that walleyes were pushing them to the surface and feeding on them . At the time I was fishing shiners in the mid summer and was really putting the hurt to the eyes! Good plan to be trolling plugs over these spots especially if its over deep water.. Paul

Thanks for your thoughts. We have caught a few walleyes and crappies at about the same time as this happens but other times it doesn't matter what you have on for bait. Nothing is biting. That is why I am puzzled by it. Always happens on a still warm night and you usually can't stay on the lake long before the mosquitos start trying to carry you away. I kind of doubt the whole alligator theory though, unless you meant northern gators.
