  • Q: While live-bait fishing off Miami Beach, Florida, we caught this 7 1/2-foot, 76-pound billfish that looks like a cross between a white marlin and an Atlantic sailfish. The second half of the dorsal fin was grown out part of the way like a sailfish, but the leading part of the dorsal looked similar to that of a white marlin. Could this be a result of a previous catch and release (although there were no other signs of trauma) or just a deformed fin? - Capt. Read More

  • Q: While rummaging through some old photos my granddaddy took on a long-range trip off Baja many years ago, I came across this shot. He's written on it, "hawkfish."

Many of my fishermen colleagues contend that the fish shown in the enclosed picture is not a blue marlin but a spearfish. Being a subscriber and avid reader of your magazine I would like you to confirm what kind of billfish it is and put an end to our argument. - Capt. Favio Icaza, HondurasA: Captain, it's indeed a longbill spearfish, Tetrapterus pfluegeri - but it's a big un', and that's probably what led to the confusion. Read More
