Gulf Sailfish

2020 Red Snapper fishing, 100+ degrees out 25 miles from Cedar Key. Free line pinfish hooked an Atlantic 70 LB Sailfish. The 80″ fish (tip to tip) had an estimated 68″ lower jaw to fork measure. Successfully released the fish after a few pictures. It was 30+ minutes of good reel exercise and the excitement of the day.

Nice way to start day

Marcia’s first cast of day on recent Cedar Key trip. Too small, out of season, released healthy, yet, a nice way to start day.
