More About the Spawning Lake Fish

Juvenile Largemouth Bass

I decided to check the area of the lake where I saw the Bluegill and Crappie and other fish circling around apparent gravel spawning areas the other day, and took some pictures.  I managed to take a few better photographs this time.  The fish are in 3-5′ of water and the darker photographs were of fish in the deeper water. I can’t tell  for certain which type of Crappie that fish in the deeper water is, but it is likely a Black Crappie.  The fish circle and sweep the muck and debris away to clear clean gravel where the spawning is completed.  The fish are Bluegill, Crappie and a juvenile Large Mouth Bass.
