    Default Killer whales off of outer banks

    I do not know how to post pictures here, but I can email them to some one if they wish to add them. Killer Whales cutting tuna just behind the gills.

    Check this out. Now I am sure charter fishing is doomed. First it was the economy. Then it was fuel prices. Then it was catch shares. Then the inlet may be closed. And now killer whales have taken over the point. If NOAA finds out about this they are sure to shut down the N.C. coast.

    Here are the photos of the VERY rare pod of orcas off of Oregon inlet yesterday!
    They normally do not come further south than Iceland. This pod was in behind the
    fishing fleet attacking blue fin tuna! There were a total of ten fish that were
    hooked up , that were taken by these huge killer whales. Captain said they were
    behind the boat like barracuda in the keys!!!! In the last pic you can see the
    line coming from the boat to the bluefin tuna in the orcas mouth!!!
    North Carolina sport fishing definitely has it all now!!!!

    If you read the report on the link above it happened to a couple boats. I was on the Phideaux and it happened to us. The picture of the chopped fish is from the Canyon Runner and the picture of the Whale eating a tuna is by Capt Kobey who is running the Hooked Up 2. It was a wild experience and probably the coolest thing I have ever witnessed.

    NOAA already knows about it. I've got a friend who works for them and he sent the video to me.
