The crew at Stay Salty ran up on a mess of bunker pods and stopped at this one to snag some research bait and drone footage. Atlantic Menhaden (Brevoortia tyrannus) is a forage fish that eats algae and is a foundation of the food chain and many apex predator diets.
Common Dolphin Encounter - Hudson Canyon, NY
On an offshore trolling/chunking/spearfishing trip for tuna, we ran across a super pod of common dolphins. There were dolphin pods as far as the eye could see from the Flybridge of the Bass Bandit. As one the pods approached, we geared up and jumped in to welcome them. They were very curious and checked us out up close. The clicking is the marine cetacean's version of sonar. I felt like they could see straight into my soul with those beams of sound waves.
Stay Salty Inc spent some time exploring the BVI (British Virgin Islands) this winter. Just a taste of what it feels like to be on a mooring at Setting Point, Anegada.
The low roll of thunder you hear in the first few seconds of the video is a clear sign to a diver that a school of bass is nearby, even if they're beyond the visibility.
