A recapture to get you pumped up to tag a billfish this weekend!
On October 24, 2009 the crew aboard a 31 foot contender with father and captain Andrew Bate and his sons, Christopher (Angler) and Harrison (Mate), tagged and released a sailfish off of Miami, Florida using a circle hook and live bait.
The sailfish was released in excellent condition. On April 30, 2012, the sailfish with tag number BF455391 was recaptured off of Cojimar, Cuba.
The sailfish was at large for 919 days and is another example of great tag and release practices by TBF anglers and captains!
Great jobs guys!
