Went out late in the day on the SHIP OF FOOLS looking for Humpbacks. Conditions were perfect! Light winds, no ground swell and near glass at times.
I meet up with K-CUP and it was logging. When I say this, I mean the true definition of a Humpback “Logging”. On the surface, sleeping, out like a light, looking like, you guessed it…a big log floating on the surface. I shut the boat off and turned up the music and watched K-CUP at a distance while looking for other whales that maybe in the area.
K-CUP must have woken up, sunk down and high tailed it away because it was nowhere to be found.
Started the boat up and headed closer to home, I was 16 miles out. A few miles into a fast run I see K-CUP again by catching sight of a chance blow out of the corner of my eye.
Bunker schools are ready for the taking and K-CUP is setting up for its lunge feedings and going at it. During one lunge feed, I see another surface feeding of a humpback on the inside of K-CUP and then a blow of another humpback on the outside. Wow, now we have 3 whales!
