Hey, that's interesting. You just reminded me of something. We saw
the same thing at Big Darby Saturday. We stepped into the water at
one point to get to a riffle area, and and when we turned around,
there was a good sized rockbass laying up on the bank, live and
kickin'. Must be the way to avoid predators when all the vegetation
is dead from the winter.
