Weird color pattern for a bluefish. Two catfish “sparring” during spawning season. One has the other in its mouth. A rare bigeye sandtiger shark caught on a longline off Cape Canaveral.

Sara Spring with a red drum ready for release. Jack Potzauf shows off a nice red drum tagged and ready to be released.. Tagging program director Robert Wiggers with a healthy sheepshead.
