I was tuna fishing off Peaked Hill Bar on Saturday. A whale came to the boat while we were drifting, and pretty much wouldnt leave. Here are a couple of quick Vids:

Really nice video, good job keeping the whale in frame. Water looked exceptionally clear?

Great vid!!! What was the thing hanging out of its mouth?

Yeah, kind of hard to keep it in frame on the painters extension pole set up a made, but came out pretty good. We werent sure what was around the whales mouth looked like some line, maybe heavy fishing line, which sux. Hopefully it will work its way off.

What type of whale was that, I can't tell? baby hump? The front flukes look too small in proportion to body, white upper sides?

Its a humpback

I was thinking Minke?

Just busting balls your not suposed to harass right whales especially.
It's a minke, google image search minke you'll see.
They are beggars and will follow hooked cod up sometimes. Not sure if they actually eat them but they stuck around when the the fishings good

Gotcha. To be honest, I figure we'd be worse off starting up the boat and moving......
