    Default Dolphin 56

    Saw Dolphin 56 in Hereford Inlet this afternoon while cruising the inlet in the Towboat. He came right up to the boat and put on a show. I looked it up, he has a "56" branded on the fin that was done with 5 other way back in 1979 down in FL. Pretty cool to see today

    Saw 56 last week behind avalon. It caught an eel and was throwing it around like a cat with a mouse. Was amazed!
