Default Spinner Sharks off Hatteras 10-27-2020

Fishing out of Hatteras looking King Mackerel on Tuesday. We were running from the AR to the Smell Wreck and saw large fish skying. Upon closer inspection we found a large school of Spinner Sharks feeding. It was pretty cool to witness first hand.

enjoy,

I think they are always in the area this time of year chasing mackerel and albies, as we see um around Cape Lookout too.

From what I have researched they do this during feeding. I am guessing, they twist in their prey to help desirable or "shred" them? I had never seen them prior to last week.

I saw a similar show off Atlantic beach a few years ago. I was mesmerized by how cool it was until I realized that if I fell in I would be toast....those suckers are bigger than they appear on the vid!
