The mammals and tuna were feeding on a baitfish with fangs and very sharp teeth. Kinda looked like a baby barracuda. There were thousands of them all around the boat. Anyone know what species of baitfish they are. They were about six inches long and narrow. I thought maybe northern barracuda but they're not.
Thanks

I was wondering the same thing. They would jump out of the water and then look like pencils once they hit the water. They also had big eyes. I have a few frozen. I plan on fluking with them.

Yes that sounds like them. They were jumping out of the water being chased by dolphin around our boat. I netted a few with the squid net but forgot to take a picture.. They more resembled a sand eel but with two fangs and sharp teeth.

I believe that's called a northern sennet. once in a whiel they show up inshore too, usually not in numbers though as far as I know.

Might be Cutlassfish. Hard to be certain without seeing the tail.
