Meet the Sailfish

Sailfish are amazing… they’re named after their large dorsal fin, they’re powerful swimmers, and they happen to be the state saltwater fish of Florida. While they are great tasting, many anglers let them go. They tire easily, but they fight hard when hooked. According to Florida Sportsman, their average weight runs between 30 to 60 pounds, though the Florida record is 116 pounds, and the world record is 221 pounds, they can reach a length of up to 11 feet.

They’re a fast growing species, getting up to 5 feet in length in one year.
