    Any thoughts on this pile of fish?

    Anyone have any idea of the species on this image. This is from today at a lake in NW Georgia. Yesterday the bass had the shad balled up. Today the shad were dispersed and the bass were suspended under them from the cold front. There are bass, crappie, walleye and brim in this lake. The few shad schools I found did not have this definition. This is off an Elite 7

    Not bass or bream, looks like stripe or white bass.

    Thank you, there are no true or hybrid stripers in this lake. A few yellow bass but not at that quantity. Would crappie do this at this time of year?

    Shad. When you hit them just right they will show up like that.
