Anglers - Lake anglers are most likely to encounter water fleas on their fishing lines in clumps of hundreds of individuals. The long spiny tails can become entangled on fishing lines, creating havoc for anglers as the first line guide of their fishing rod becomes clogged. Anglers have reported having to cut their lines because they are unable to reel them in. These masses of individuals look and feel like wet cotton.
I guess larger fish will eat them just fine but small fish don't because of the spines, thus they mass produce...
Posted the above because the Ifalls article was sort of a scrunched together mess.
Even a BAD day of fishing is better than a good day of work; paydays excluded!
