It does seem to be somewhat of a regular thing on the outer banks piers when the winds are right.

Saw one at Oak Island (OCP) a few years ago, early June. It came right out from under the pier near the king rigs, circled a few times, then lit up very brightly and crushed a tired looking whiting! Didn't stay hooked long though.

The funny thing is, most people were using fresh, lively menhaden and the mahi didn't have any interest in those. It was probably 15-20 lbs. or so. Pretty cool to see!
