Or it could mean that it thought you were a handsome devil and was excited to see ya! :razz: (that's a joke, for anyone who was offended...)So, I caught a 26 inch Bass 3 nights ago. It shot what looked like egg fertlizer (white milky fluid) all over the rocks. I was wondering if anybody has had this happen?
Natural re-action. Most Stripers start having re-productive fluid(males) and eggs(females) when they reach a quite early age,when they get to 20 inches. Last ditch effort when he knew he was being caught to release his fluid in the hopes of connecting with some eggs--to proliferate the species. While most of these young males dont really go on spawning runs as their bigger brothers do--they have the 'tools' + 'equipment' to practice with. There are LOTS of small stripers caught during the Spring Spawn run up the Delaware River--they basically go along for the ride with the bigger -actual-spawning Stripers. Sort of like school-work---learning the spawn.So, I caught a 26 inch Bass 3 nights ago. It shot what looked like egg fertlizer (white milky fluid) all over the rocks.
