This video, captured by Ocean Isle Fishing Center off of the Carolina Coast on February 4th, shows massive Bluefin Tuna destroying a school of bluefish. Tuna use their size and numbers to push their prey to the water’s surface, and once their bait is trapped, begin to systematically annihilate it.
What makes this video remarkable is the size of the “bait” the tuna are feeding on. They’re not small baitfish, but instead their feeding on large Bluefish that many of us would love to feel pulling at the end of our line. We’re not even sure you could tie a fly large enough to match that hatch!
