These photos of a VERY rare pod of orcas were taken from “Hooked Up II,” a charter boat fishing off of Oregon Inlet this week. Orcas, more commonly known as killer whales, normally do not come further south than Iceland. The killer whales were attacking the Blue Fin Tuna that were hooked up behind the boat.
