Humpback Whales off Monmouth County November 2016: Large schools of Bunker also known as Menhaden migrate along the Jersey Shore every Fall. Striped bass fishermen generally follow Bunker looking for big bass. Whales, such as Humpbacks also follow Bunker. This year the Bunker stayed close to shore which seemed to help bring the whales in. In almost 50 years of living here at the Jersey Shore, I have never seen so much inshore feeding activity from Humpbacks Whales as we have seen this year. Four days in a row I was fortunate to get some shots. All images were captured from the beach with a telephoto lens.
