A couple of unusual pics I took with an Olympus underwater cam in Inagua.

Interesting pictures Walt. How were you able to be so close without spooking the school?
Looked like a moderate water depth. What camera?
Thanks.

Gary, Those fish were stacked up at a pipe between 2 old salt ponds. Hurricane Tomas had come close to Inagua a few days before and dumped a lot of fresh water. I think they may have been bunched up there to get the more salty water that was flowing through the pipe. You could reach down and grab them. They are trapped in those ponds. We have never fished for them but have seen the islanders hauling them up in cast nets.
