Driving near back gate nasp 26jan15 1230 just seen 500 birds all diving in a 50ft radius... what!!! Ft. Pickens side of the pass if i didnt have work God knows I would launch asap, looks to me like a huge school of bulls running the beaches, i kid u not the water under the birds had a orange redish tint plenty of fish busting but i was to far to make it out. Does a bull red run / school sound right or could it had been something else. I haven't seen a frenzy like that since last fall.

Sounds exactly like bull reds have seen them do that and turn the water red just like u r explaining many times and they will usually hit anything you throw at them

Definately, bulls. Schools of two thousand have been seen inside and outside the pass at this time of year.

According to my chart, it's supposed to be a GOOD day today; especially the later it gets in the afternoon.

Sort of an anomaly due to the half moon.

Sounds like it might be a 'Matter of Life and Death'; like that Micheal Waddell, Bone Collecter, deer camera, commercial.

Moon is already up at a 45 degree angle.

Take heart. A couple of years ago a local inshore charter Captain got on a school like that and caught 'em for four straight days...25 or 30 a day; until he missed one day and lost the school. Think it was in February. Believe he located them right outside the pass. They are gonna follow the mullet, wherever they go.

Josh;

I've been standing on Navarre pier when this has happened off the T.
It's like a rolling red tide of bulls.

I saw that too. I was coming in the back gate around 1230. Tons of birds right there. They were still there when I left just after 3:00.

Yeah, I was out on my surf board when a giant school like that with hundreds upon hundreds came down the beach once, I will never forget that view. I pulled my feet up out of the water for most of it, they were ravenous, hitting and jumping everywhere, it was crazy.

I saw the Red Tide one time about a mile due north of chandelier island.
There was a slick of tiny blue crabs swimming on top of the water.
Bull reds we're rolling up and sucking them in. As far as the eye could see.
Pretty much any thing you would throw at them worked.
