https://youtu.be/WQXa1iN9_F8 Hey folks! I was going through old files and found this highlight reel from an incredible day of scuba diving in Woods Hole during the Fall Run of 2017. In this video, you can watch as big striped bass and albies work a massive school of peanut bunker up against some pilings in about 25 feet of water. One thing I took away from this experience was how these fish actually work together to concentrate the bait by making a wall, with the stripers spacing themselves out evenly and occupying different parts of the water column to ensure that the peanuts couldn't make an escape. Every now and then, you'll see the school of peanuts gain courage and drift further and further away from the structure, only to be picked off by albies screaming through with stripers lazily following them to eat the scraps. By the end, some seabass and flounder were even getting in on the action! You'll have to excuse my shaking in the video - it was COLD water that day. Enjoy!! My favorite parts: 2:00 - Albie crashing the school with a striper close behind 2:25 - 13(?) albies crashing through all at once! 3:45 - My absolute favorite shot, a nice striper parting the sea of peanuts 5:30 - Clouds of peanut bunker streaming around the pilings, running from some truly giant stripers out wide
