Identification of small fish in Sodus Bay

Recommended Posts

I fished  in Sodus Bay this past week and observed thousands and thousands of small fish (1-2") surfacing. They were all over the bay everywhere I went. I asked many people in the area what they might be and no one knew. The fish were surfacing for no apparent reason. Does anyone have an idea what these fish could be? Are there threadfin shad in the bay?

Probably gizzard shad but could be young  of the year alewives.

And likely surfacing because something is feeding on them from below..

 

when I used to fish in Maine we would sight fish and look for bait surfacing..  always found smallmouth under them..
