I've discovered something interesting (to me). The bream are cold and do not come to the dock when I put food in for them.

A couple of weeks ago when the weather was growing cooler, I thought acorns were falling, but it wasn't acorns falling because there were no oaks on the bank and instead of something falling, something was pushing the water up - to heights of nearly a foot! All around the dock I was watching water forced up and I didn't know I was watching bass feeding.

A friend who is more familiar with southern creeks told me the bass were eating furiously now to put on fat for the cold weather, and would gather in feeding frenzies and then go deep to ward off the cold.

This image was taken last Friday at 3:30 p.m. I'd walked over for a break in the day. The sky was still quite stormy and gray - it had rained all night and into the day. It was cooling off - we've had some freezes at night and lots of frost.

The bass were at it. I think there's a bass back in the circle on the left. Of course, when I put the camera back in the case, and just stood and watched them, one big one shot out of the water like a salmon or a trout. It was big. About two feet long.

It's interesting to watch them. They're noisy when they're popping the water up.

The water looked like metal that day because of the sky.
