Fishing continues to be great at the Reef! Vanessa and Carl Lindnet IV caught this gorgeous Opah fish on their 58’ Merritt while day dropping for swordfish in 1500 feet off North Key Largo/ south Miami with Capt Richard Peeples and Capt Jeff Amorello. This very cool fish weighed 78 lbs. Opahs are commonly known as moonfish, kingfish, redfin ocean pan, and Jerusalem haddock. They are large, colorful and deep-bodied fish.
We are looking forward to new season in the Fall and celebrating our 25th Anniversary at our Annual Event. In the meantime, stay well! Events, photos activities and membership details are always available on our RodandGun.org website. Happy Summer!
