My first encounter with northern gannets was unhooking them from getting foul hooked on our fishing gear. While trolling rigged ballyhoo for giant bluefin tunas off of the Outer Banks in early January, the gannets would dive and try and steal our dragged baits. According to our local captain, if we were fooling the gannets, chances were we could fool a bluefin into a bite. He was right as we caught and released a giant bluefin tuna estimated at over 400lbs. That was 2002. The northern gannets still spend their winters actively feeding off of menhaden and herring off the coast of the Carolinas. In early spring, they migrate north and follow the schools of fish along the coast up to Canada. I captured these shots and videos from the New Jersey shore as the birds headed north this past spring. The tuna shots were scanned from the original film.

Great post Herb! I'd actually love to see that diving action in person...crazy! I just wouldn't be real happy about it if I was fishing.
