Cape Cod's saltwater environment is a wild world. Each day on Cape, countless underwater dramas unfold as predators such as stripers, tuna and tautog hunt their prey.
The vast majority of the action is never witnessed by human eyes. However, in today's video I'm going to give you a glimpse of the fascinating world beneath the Cape's waves.
I filmed the following video on October 8th in Buzzard's Bay. In this video clip you'll see an estimated 2 pound bluefish in hot pursuit of a live killifish. I found the agility of both predator and prey to be fascinating.

Have you every wondered how many times a fish has investigated your bait or lure without biting? It might happen a lot more than we think.
This past summer I filmed many scenes in which stripers, tuna, fluke and other species investigated lures and baits without biting.
Of course having a camera on the end of my fishing line probably doesn't help! I am sure the camera setup spooks a lot of fish, but nevertheless I am surprised at times at how indecisive fish can be.
