August 31

Even though August ended today, and we’re heading into Labor Day weekend – the unofficial end of summer, Stellwagen Bank is still packed with whales.  Today we had at least 30 including Cajun, Pele, Jabiru, Milkweed, Pepper, A-plus, Rapier’s 2009 calf, Perseid, Apex, Nile and calf, just to name a few.  The fish finder showed lots of food, mostly along the bottom, which is what we would expect given the large “gangs” of whales surging to the surface together, then diving but staying in the same general area.  Let’s hope the whales stick around for the holiday weekend!
