Flounder Chasing Bait School on Cape Cod

Similar to the last video I posted, this video shows a flounder following and chasing a simulated school of bait. Once again, I had no idea this interaction happened until I reviewed the footage which shows just how much goes on under the waves that we never know. I think my favorite part is the last few seconds when the flounder glides effortlessly.

As always, select "1080P" quality option from the  gear icon on the bottom right of the video.

Stripers on Cape Cod

I built a camera system to house a GoPro inside an umbrella rig that simulates a school of shad. The stripers were keyed in on a sand eel hatch so this was the wrong umbrella rig choice but still recorded some interesting interactions. While we saw no evidence of fish above the surface, there was a lot happening under the waves. We were fogged in with only 100ft of visibility so video quality would be greatly improved on a sunny day. As always, watch in HD.
