So as cabin fever sets in and I cant go fishing, I gotta do something. Last March, note snow flurries on screen, I marked some big fish stacked up in a few spots approaching 60 feet. Only possibilities I can guess at are carp and or muskies. Do you think these could be muskies in groups that large?

My money is on carp, maybe with a few well-fed muskies mixed in.
At a typical average population density of one muskie per acre, that would mean that you had every muskie in the whole lake or river under your boat.
I guess the only proof is actually dropping a lure down there and seeing what eats it, but I have never had much luck doing that when coming across a pile of fish like that in deep water. I've tried to drop an Aqua-Vu camera down into schools of fish like that a few times, but didn't see anything. Come to think of it, the only fish I have ever seen on it are carp.
