Bunker and the Humpback Whales that feed on them were very active off Fire Island yesterday. I witnessed one whale off Smith Point Beach and had reports of three off Davis Park and another two off Fire Island Pines.
The reason they are here are big schools of bunker (Menhaden) up and down the beach. The images and video below were taken off Bellport Beach 10-20-17.
