Back in the 80s and 90s, this used to happen quite frequently on the OBX. If you've ever been to Dillon's tackle in Buxton, you've seen the picture of an angler holding a 20lb Bluefish near Cape Point with a blanket of Menhaden flopping all over the beach. Back when fish populations were much higher, the huge schools of blues would chase schools of bait all the way up onto the beach. Still happens every now and again in the winter, but not nearly as often.
u guys hear about all the birds nd fish dying in arkansas?
Dig deeper my friend and look at what's really going on. Dead birds in Ark, Dead birds in Italy, Dead fish all over. There are some articles on the internet tracking them all on Google maps. One even links the "Dead Pelicans at Topsail" news a few months back. Remember, the fishermen were getting blamed for dead pelicans with blunt head trauma... like what they found on the birds in Ark.
