Fishermen spot humpback whale off Pinellas County!

This is amazing! Earlier this week, a of fisherman spotted a humpback whale in the Gulf of Mexico, about 30 miles off the coast of Cleawater Beach! Humpbacks aren't often seen in our area; it's been 3 years since the last time one was spotted.

Video shows the whale jumping out of the water just a short distance from the camera. Amazing!
