Giant rafts of snows roosting 3-15 miles out in the ocean

Postby bigbuckilla » Sat Feb 06, 2010 7:31 am

There's been massive flocks of snows rafting up out in the ocean. I live in oc,md and see them too and from pretty much every day. (not durring the two big storms we just had). my roommate is a commercial fisherman and has been driving thru acres of them. the striper fisherman have been seeing them as well. but its been an all day to and from event when i notice them. i cant see them with bino's from the top of hotels, so they're out 3 miles +. it would be a interesting hunt if you have enough white bottles/buoys.

If anyone can get a pic of a comercial fishing boat driving through a raft of snows I would love to see it and have a copy. I think it would be a real neat photo to have on the wall!

I agree, a pic of them rafting up like that with a boat driving thru them would be an awesome site...pic please.
