Risso's Dolphins! I had heard reports of them being seen over the last couple of weeks and had quietly been hoping to see some.
The pod surrounded me and elliot and i didn't know where to point the camera next! Its the first time i had seen them up close - beautiful animals that look like white ghosts with body scarring. Elliot and myself looked on in awe as they gracefully cruised passed us, adults and calves, maybe 15-20 individuals. I managed to get a few nice photos which i was really happy with
Back to the fishing and we had tied up to a pot buoy over a reef and elliot quickly pulled out a pollack on a savage gear eel. I dropped a bait down and failed to get a bite.
