Smallmouth Bass Feeding on Crayfish

It's interesting to see exactly how bass pick up crayfish and eat them.  In this compilation showing several different crayfish being consumed by Smallmouth Bass, you can see how the fish almost always head toward the surface.  Small stones, plants, detritus and even parts of the crayfish claws that break off are expelled from the mouth before the crayfish is swallowed.
