Anyone know what this looks like? I threw bait and no response and saw strange bubbles coming up from below the boat. At one point the mark came up to 15 ft bellow the boat and just sat there. Mammal fish?

Really weird question, but why do you have your meter set to 60’ depth if you are offshore?

Brother.....who knows for sure. In my 5 decades of fishing from Alaska to Costa Rica. .... I've seen more "unexplainable" phenomenon than I care to discuss.

In the dark..... or hundreds of miles offshore..... running alone and with many people....or LR trips. Running yachts to CABO. Commercial fishing in ALASKA.

Most of it..... written in my journals.... and burned in my memory..... I'll never be able to explain. It's confounded me for decades.

Expect the unexpected. Eventually.... you learn to keep it to yourself..... As you can see..... others will think your crazy.... UNTIL.... One day... it happens to them.

Be safe out there.

Everyone who fishes offshore, especially at night, has. That is why I bought an underwater drone -- so I coudl send it down to take video of the weirdest stuff I see. Well, it is a PIA to launch, and I have been pretty busy with other stuff the past few years so not as much time or energy to try as I want, but from what I have seen various crustraceans and mulluscs, mostly molluscs (sp?), form weird formations at night.

Kinda look like camel humps, if it were Wednesday I’d say almost for sure camel but on a Tuesday? 50/50. My second inclination would be a toe of said camel.
