Capelin Anyone?

Tony Lee, a kayaker and member of the Kayak Newfoundland & Labrador paddling club, has a wonderful web site called Kayak the Rock where one can find hundreds of photos of paddling the coast of Newfoundland. On a recent paddle together with a number of other KNL members from Bellevue Beach to Rantem at the head of Trinity Bay, I took some video footage as we encountered thousands of capelin spawning on the beaches. At one point these tiny fish were rolling onto a few yards of exposed sand inside a sea cave and, well, things got out of hand, as you might expect given we were literally paddling more in fish than on water at times. Have a look...

Check out Tony's photos of this paddle outing on his Gallery. Be sure to check out his photos of other trips as well.
