But I have no clue what they're on. Herring are in, but it not them they're after in this case. Nothing splashing. Guesses?

The east end of the canal and surrounding creeks have had large schools of big sandeels up to 8" in length. The gulls have been diving on them, theres got to be something under them pushing them up.I have yet to see or hear what though.

I wonder if they're spring cod or pollock?

They're silversides, by the millions.

I would imagine the (UDL) holdovers are feasting in a big way with the arrival of these silversides - bet I can find some tomorrow...
