Unusual Fish Behaviour
What’s the most unusual fish behaviour you have witnessed?
I originally placed this as a tail end to a reply on Ron’s tench thread. I then thought maybe it could be an interesting lead to a thread in it's own right.
About 8 or 9 years ago I was fishing a lake with my son ‘up in the water’ for carp. Early afternoon the water that we were fishing, some 20m out, turned very brown. Our first thought was that it was some sort of algae. Not so, it was a very large shoal of tench possibly brought to a feeding frenzy by the stream of pellets hitting the water. For half an hour it was a tinca a chuck – then they disappeared as quickly as they came. Although I have caught many tench, also some bream, up in the water I have never seen anything like this before or since.
That's about as big as a fish that big gets
