What is This?

This was discovered in the lake near the shore in about 2 feet of water.  The NYS DEC says that this long gelatinous strand are yellow perch eggs. Spawning occurs in early spring, over brush or vegetation. By being semi-buoyant, the egg tube can oscillate with the water movement, which keeps the eggs aerated. The young hatch in about 7-10 days.
