I've read they'll do that if they're immature. This is only their second time spawing.
I'm located in Somerset County (about 15 miles north of Princeton). Are you familar with NJ?
Very cool. To bad you couldn't have video recorded it.
Yep I'm very familiar with NJ. Mostly South Jersey / Philly area (my Fiancee is from Sicklerville /Williamstown area) Born in Philly but she was raised in South NJ. I'll actually be in Sicklerville in about 3 weeks. I'm more familiar with South NJ, but I do frequent north.... way north though (Passaic, Newark, etc.) since I'm in NYC alot. I do know where you're at. SHe has family up in Trenton and we go up there (and Princeton area) when we visit.
