Billfish Since Banning Longlining: A Podcast Special with Dr.Ellen Peel & Ray Rosher

The best way to get on the bite, on the go.

Our guest star, Capt. Ray Rosher, can be seen here with a beautiful bluefin tuna, which happens to be a topic we discuss in this special episode of Florida Sportsman Action Spotter Podcast

Tonight we're shaking things up a bit. We're joined by the head of the Billfish Foundation, Dr. Ellen Peel, to discuss how billfish data has looked since the removal of longline fishing from our waters 19 years ago. Ray Rosher gives his insights on the status of bluewater fishing in his neck of the woods. We discuss the abundance of swordfish, the return of bluefin tuna, fluctuations in blackfin, crazy facts about mahi, and the struggle for sailfish and marlin.
