This menhaden is diving as fast as he can because he knows he’s about to become bait for our striped bass (rockfish) charter expedition. This species is essential to the Bay because it is a filter feeder for lower organisms and prime food for rockfish, and bluefish. This beauty helped me catch a 35” rockfish on our outing!
