Home Big Bend General Fishing & The Outdoors

Hadn't caught one of these in over 15 years.

Other people may catch these often but it took me 15 years to catch another one onshore.   I know they are 100 miles offshore in deep water and under oil platforms, but I caught this one off of Cedar Keys pier.  Caught them in the Atlantic ocean off piers several times but only a couple of times in the gulf.  The fish is a Spade Fish, a small one 11 to 12 inches but it put up a good fight for its size..
