I was working in Corrova NC Tue and Wed and stopped every 5 miles til I was at MP1 and saw many pods of birds diving the entire way. The most gannets were a little north and south of the research pier. The OI fleet were on these and boy was it rough wed.
Also had a frind cathch them 6 miles south of rudee. I think there is a long stretch of prime water (temp) from Cape Henry to Kitty Hawk. Just pick you own pod!
