    Don't think I've seen one that far offshore. How big was it? Wonder if it's any good as bait.

    he was over 5 feet, which is bigger than my information say it should be. normal around 1-2 ft, warmer areas they can be 3-5 ft

    a few years back i caught one ever bit of that size in 100 feet on a sardine, thought it was a sail at first when it jumped i was very surprised that they could get that big

    I believe you caught a flat needlefish. Nice catch. I have caught one many spring's ago on the edge.
