I went over there Saturday too, we took the grandkids to Eagle Point park and to the river at a few places so they could see the dam and throw rocks in the river. There was a lot of Pelican feeding in there. I would imagine they are feeding one what is usually in there, panfish, Bass, Pike shad and carp. Again there is more pelican than there was last year, I would guess 30% more. Imagine how many fish they eat, 5# of fish a day times 3000+ pelican maybe. And they will do this until mid falls when they start to leave. Then there’s the Egret, Heron and Cormorant who also are increasing in numbers every year. One of these days they will run out of fish to eat. There’s nothing the DNR can do except claim they only eat shad. I mean they couldn’t destroy eggs or anything or people would be outraged. We have them on the Rock River Too, eating catfish, Bass, Walleye, Shad, Carp and minnows to name a few species. Pelicans love shallow water and they don’t have any trouble catching fish.
