Pomatomus saltatrix


These fish have extremely sharp teeth. You need metal line just to catch them or they will bite the line off easily. They go into a frenzy feeding on an oily fish called "Bunker". I cannot tell if "Bluefish" is the real name for them but perhaps there's an angler out there who knows the real name?? BTW we released this one. It lived. :)
