As I was soaking bait last Saturday morning (8/13) a patch of dark clouds passed overhead and went out to sea, I thought I saw a waterspout coming from one of the darker clouds, but when looking through my binoculars, I saw it was the spray from the blowhole of a whale. My wife and I watched for over 2 hours as the whale seemed to be following schools of bait fish about 1/4 mile or so off shore. I don't know what kind of whale it was, but it did have a dorsal fin so maybe a fin whale or minke whale. Any one else see it? We were at marker 30 or 31 on Assateague Island about 8am to 10am.
