It used to be a Fox River tradition when we went camping on the islands. The only rule was that they had to be alive when they were swallowed. They really are not too bad, but who know, I was always kinda drunk :D

Getting back to the bird subject, those guys are really thick in population. Just about every body of water has them now.

Have anyone ever witnessed those birds at Heidecke. When the baby shad are thick, they is a bird chowing them every 100 feet or so on the riprap. A few summers back in WI I saw one grab a 12'' pike out a shallow marshy inlet. I wonder if they impact fish populations in certain places?
