I really didn't see what they were feeding on, but at the ramp I saw a TON of silverside looking bait. Not sure exactly what they were...I'm not very good at bait id in the Slim Skinny category.
Trying to keep up with them was tough. I had one really good shot when they stayed up for a few minutes, but then it was off to the races, they were heading offshore and the fog was building, so I eventually turned back.
Well, I'm on the Downeaster Alexa, and I'm cruisin' through Block Island Sound.
I have chartered a course for the Vineyard, but tonight I am Nantucket bound.
