Lots of different behavior, following, feeding, tight cirling.

Environment Details

Zero wind, very high plankton levels, Gannets diving. Can't tell exactly how many sharks there were because they were spread over an area of about a mile but roughly 10-12. Some were curious and approached the boat, other kept a very good distance. I didn't get any pictures but I did manage to live stream some of it including 1 shark passing under the boat https://www.periscope.tv/SeaAnglers1/1RDGlOgrrgzKL (3:45). I drifted for approx an hour with them.
