Fishing news

This beautiful, large male dorado was caught by Ben Barnhill from Greenville, SC at 11:50 Spot on Black/Brown lure
The male is distinguished from the female by the shape of its head; the male has a square head and the female a rounded one.

There are some small tuna around, like this one caught by Emily Barnhill ; tuna are actually one of the strongest fish in the ocean and not that easy to reel in…this one will make great sushi.
