I had some pellet form Betta food and thought I'd see if the fish at a local State Park would eat it. The sunfish figured out pretty quickly that it was food. Then the large mouth bass smelled it and swarmed in. That was cool seeing a dozen and a half beasts swim in at the same time from all sides of the dock! They swam within inches of the food then looked around as if to say 'I smell it. I know its here. Where is it?' The bass never did figure it out. The neatest part was when the bass were trying to figure out where the food was a sunfish came in that had a hook in his mouth. He must have been awfully hungry! He did some serious pigging out then swam to the end of the dock and stared right up at me. That little bugger was begging! I'm so glad I had my camera with. I didn't have it out when the bass swarmed in, but I couldn't pass up attempting to take it out when that sunfish with the hook came in. You can see the Betta food floating on the surface in these first 2 pics. The sunfish with the hook is swimming with the bass in these 2. If you look close you can see the hook.
