Waushacum algae pods?

I think these are algae spore pods, though some self appointed experts claim they are fish eggs. Funny, though, that I took these pics in mid to late August. Judging from all the smallfry kivers and bass I spotted in June, when I first went out testing the underwater cameras, I am pretty confident the fish had already spawned then. More photos and clarification to come.

    Just this week, August 2010, I found similar jelly-like balls on the lake bottom here in Upstate New York. I found one large one, about 6″ diameter and two smaller ones nearby. Didn’t make an effort to look further. There may e more. These were in 3 feet of water depth.
    Did you ever find out what they are? Animal? Plant? ??
