Plankton ??

I am not a fisherman but noticed this year something I had not in previous. At night off the back of the houseboat we saw what we thought was dust. Then it moved. Very small creatures with many larger fish (Stripers, Catfish, and Carp) just rolling through it sucking them up. What is this stuff?

When we put our green lights off the back of the cruiser we draw a "cloud" of zooplankton that will move and follow the light(faster moving than I thought possible). Sometimes the larger fish come for the plankton, sometimes they don't. Our last trip in Red Canyon we had a huge number of plankton, but no stripers or other bass visible. We did catch some nice catfish further off the boat.
