Video: Scuba diving for nesting sunfish

Brainerd Dispatch photographer, Steve Kohls took advantage of the nesting behavior of sunfish to grab some great video to share with you.

Sunfish are on their nests in the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area lakes allowing for divers to get up close and personal with them.

The male fans out a nest in firm-bottomed shallows, often within a colony of dozens of other nests. A single female can deposit more than 50,000 eggs. The male then guards eggs and fry.
