Among the indicators if there is a butanding in the area are the following. (10 Presence of these seagulls or wild ducks gliding to eat small fishes like dilis. Wild birds, tuna and butanding eat these small dilis.
(2) Huge splashes of water, the tuna or butanding are chasing a group of these small fishes.
And there they are.
Huge, dark fish with white spots.
Jun Velasco jumped in the water, and briefly swam with these gentle fish giants.
The other group or boat which saw butanding was Uly Veloso and Raymond Asanza's. Our group followed them too. We only saw huge splashes and fins of the butanding from afar, we were not lucky to see them up close.
Nonetheless, it was a great adventure, with kids in town. Thanks again Raymond, for that wonderful weekend of fun and camaraderie.
