Watch As This Guy Lands A MONSTER 750 Pound Sawfish
In my opinion, this is one of the best fishing videos I’ve seen in a while, they say they’re going for bonita’s, so they cast-out their net to try and get some bait. But this days fishing would yield far more than they were hoping for.
Bonita the fish that pulls hard, fights hard, bloody as hell, but can not be eaten? These amazing fighters are primary used for bait here in south West Florida, But are we missing the meal? More and more I hear stories of Bonita as dinner.
Related to the Tuna or so it would seem These beautiful fish,The name Bonita in Spanish means beautiful they live up to that Blue colors heavy body large forked tail all things about this fish show it is fast & powerful, Their blood seems to have a lot of iron in it being fast requires of lot of energy. This is where the problem starts with being edible, even when bled, there is so much blood in this fish, they have an iron taste, “Tinny”.
But its what they catch at the end of the video that was amazing. The guys hook something BIG and decide to pull into shore and reel in the monster that way and once they saw it, they were completely amazed to say the least. It seems they hooked a monster 750 pound sawfish.
Sawfish, are rays, although they have a body similar to a shark’s. The largetooth sawfish’s most prominent feature is its rostrum, also referred to as snout or saw, which has 14 to 23 large rostral teeth protruding from it, and comprises almost a quarter of the total length of the sawfish.Its body color can range from gray to greenish to golden brown, while its underbelly is cream-colored. Sawfish travel far up river systems and even live in freshwater. Sometimes, they may venture into bays and coastal marine habitats, especially during the dry season. Mature sawfish have occasionally been found in deeper ocean waters.
