    What is this fishy smell I'm smelling along calm shorelines on the lake this time of the year? It's kinda fishy, kinda sweet smelling and sorta like the sweet watermelon smell when fishing Speckled Trout slicks.

    I'm wondering if this smell might be from the crappie spawn?

      Could be cappies. I know bluegills on the bed will give off a faint odor.

        I have often smelled this in the spring, I believe it has to do with the spawns of several different fish.

          I'm pretty sure it's from bluegill spawning.
