    Thanks bro. That's a great site. I'm bookmarking that one.

    I think they were barn door skates based on the pic and characteristics described. Which i now remember is the same name i ended up finding that best described the ones i saw at LBI about 5 years ago. I think they're also the same ones we'd get in the net monkfishing.

    Yeah, they could definately spook the hell out of ya at first when they come cruising past in the lineup. They're like phantoms or ghosts. I like paddling alongside them like you're in their school...just gliding along real smooth.  I like doing that with dolphins also.

  • was at a central spot a few years ago and the water was unbelievably clear and u could see down to the sandbar. as me and a few friends were paddling out we see tons of rays, flocks of about 20 of em just swimmin around in the line up for the whole day. the waves werent too great so we were just diving down and swimming with them for the entire day. was just one of those days that u remember really well

  • We used to get them ALL the time on a dragger out of Point Jud RI. Never heard of them being that big though, and looked just like that picture, cept dark brown backs.
