I did not get into fishing until about 2 years ago, and last winter started fishing almost weekly weather permitting . Got a new Garmin fish finder for Christmas. After reading post on here daily , I finally feel that I have an understand of what is happening on my electronics. Saturday afternoon I located this feeding school and got my first ever limit!! 28 of of 39 fish were keepers and seeing my 8 year old son reel in 10 bass on his own was awesome! Best fishing day I've had ever!!

Thanks for the great post. Can explain why you thought these where feeding on your finder? I'm still learning as well.

Thankyou

OAKPOINTAGGIE the feeding part was more of a dropping a line and finding out kind of thing. BUT from what I've read on here, if you get red strikes showing up on the fish finding while the boat is sitting still - its a sign the fish are striking bait .

Fish on the bottom or at the top are often pushing bait and may be feeding. Fish suspended are often loafing and can be difficult to get to bite.
