Humminbird Side image interpreted

Here is a image from the Humminbird 1197 with "my" interpretation.
The picture is taken going off a steep ledge that has a hard bottom. The ledge goes from 22 to 32 feet.
The red circle is a nice brush pile up on top of the ledge.
The yellow circle is nice tight bait ball suspended high in the water column.
The blue circle is the sonar shadow created by the tight bait ball.
The yellow circle is what I find quite interesting. I think it is bait being attacked by fish of some kind.

Looks good Ray, gotta get me one of those infernal machines, I guess! These snapshots would be much more helpful if you would tell me what lake, and the latitude and!

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crank baits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
