Local waterman and YouTube vlogger South Fork Salt, aka Tim Regan, posted some exciting drone footage of sharks feeding on a massive school of bunker, or menhaden, just 200 yards offshore in Bridgehampton today. It’s an impressive look at nature in action.
“This is scarily close to shore,” Regan notes disconcertingly in the post. “You never know what you’re gonna get each day. One day it’s dolphins, the next it’s stripers and bluefish, then all of a sudden dozens of sharks and even tuna!” he told us later.
Regan posted a similar video (see below) earlier this week on Instagram, noting, “It really is Shark Week. Do not swim near the schooling menhaden.”
From the look of these images, we’d say that’s sound advice.
