They're more green when they are in the water. Very cool to see up close.

You get them once in a while on the beach, especially during the bigger blitzes at Montauk. They'll even hit a pencil popper at times.

I so have to get a boat and take the month of september off. I'm way jealous. Congrats to all those who are getting them.
