    Miami Fishing

    I'm sure there are some fisherman on CF so I thought I'd share a pic of my catch from last weekend in Miami. It was my first bill-fish and they are a lot of fun.

    It was my first time to Florida and I really enjoyed myself. I hear summer is brutally hot, but January was really nice.

    It's amazing how quickly they lose their color, isn't it. Some of the coolest colors when you pluck them from the water.

    Re: Miami Fishing

    I was so amazed at how strong and big the fish was that I really didn't notice the colors. I'll have to check out pics on-line.

    They do put up a heck of a fight, especially on light tackle. That guy took me 45 minutes to get on board. I really got the feeling that we were working on his terms and all I could do was take what he gave me. The strike was amazing as well, I wouldn't want to be a bait fish in the gulf stream.

    Great fish! Are you going to get a mount?

    I'm not sure how mounting works. I released the fish (didn't want to kill the dude after he gave me such a thrill), can they do mounts based on pictures? If so, I'll have to look into it.

    Pictures and a few basic measurements if you want it exact...
