Fish of Florida: Longbill Spearfish

Below, a large longbill spearfish caught in 1994 by Fred Krings while fishing for marlin in the Azores near the island of Faial.  Both angler and mate admire this extremely rare animal prior to its release.  They didn't realize until they returned to the dock that this estimated 90 lb. plus beauty may well have been a world record.  (Photo, Fred Krings)

Live Moon Phase Display

Daily "Kill-o-Meter"

Longliners fish most heavily during the periods when the moon is brightest. So, this real-time image of the moon phase shows when the kill of swordfish is greatest and least. It also shows when the kill of blue marlin, white marlin, sailfish, sharks, tunas, sea turtles, marine mammals and a host of other marine life is also greatest - even though they are not even targeted. For more, see link above.
