I think they are just spooking the fish. I have had shad jump and land in my boat before. NOt on the scale that these fish are though! No one ever believes this but I had about a 12inch largemouth bass jump over my boat and land on the other side once. He was being chased by 30 or 40 lb striper!

I read elsewhere that it is indeed the light causing them to act like that, so skymir has it right. The light attracts the bugs. The fish try to get a midnight snack.

that is sort of what i was thinking. The first couple of fish are actually jumping at a bug or two illuminated by the light. But the fish jumping causes splashes to go into the air and catch the light, which makes the other fish think "look! MORE BUGS!" so they jump, cause more splashes, which cause more fish to jump, etc. This seems to match the way the intensity builds when they start jumping.

According to Snopes, this video likely displays a species of Asian carp that is notorious for jumping.
