Pretty cool. One question - Where were the gobies?

First, thank you everyone for your kind comments. 

Goby populations, like all other fish, fluctuate. This seems to be a down year for all baitfish. I see some gobies, but not many. The emerald shiner run was sparse as well. I think this might be why fishing's so good this summer.  Good numbers of gamefish, not a lot of forage. Our baits look good to hungry fish.

The Ontario record walleye was taken from Thompson Hole in 1943. It weighed 23 pounds. Caught by a shore fisherman and witnessed by many.

That's wild water. I dove it few times when I was a bit younger. We might see any kind of fish that lives in lake Erie. You go in a circle. It was fun, but a bit dangerous. The backdraft held the most gamefish.  Mounds of dead zebra mussel shells washed up out of the hole like sand dunes. The fish held between them. The bottom of that hole is over 60 ft deep.

  Wondering just where this was filmed (don't give your hot spot away) . At the mouth of the river , out in the lake, near the round house ??  I had a friend that use to dive near the round house & always said people wouldn't believe the numbers & size of the fish in that area.

Wow! Thanks for sharing this!! It was mesmerizing! I am not familiar with the Niagara river besides being a tourist from Ohio. I was always under the impression that there would be a very strong current.... most of my diving has been in tropical parts of the ocean.... the few fresh water dives I did I have very little recollection of...

It was really neat to see how the fish hold to the bottom... nothing like I had imagined.

Great footage, wished more people would do this Question, why were some of the bass black while others were a pale green?

I really don't know. I see some with black patches as well. Maybe just genetics, but I'm guessing.
