And I'm not just saying that because it was a Reef Seekers trip!!!!

Easily the largest school of fish/baitball I've ever seen in my life. When I asked Chris how many fish he thought there were, I think he said 10,000. I was thinking more like a million. But since that seems too big a number, I'm going with 100,000 as my "official" estimate.

They were ALL over the place, going from about 20-90 feet deep and all throughout the rig. As you can possibly tell from Chris's shot, they literally blocked out the sun at times when they went overhead.
