Default sailfish on okaloosa island pier

Destin rodeo had a fishing day on theokaloosa island pierfor kids and i went and helped with the young kids fisihing and the wind was blowing 100mph..lol...but i did watch a guy ( along with 100 other people and kids) catch a sailfish...I seen him throw the bait and my friend had tossed a houndfish...the saiflish took the guy next to my frineds bait and off to mexico it went....the guy fought if for about 30 minutes and then he brought it up to the end of the pier where everyone could see it. i have fished for 30 years and caught a lot of offshore fish and i must say the sailfish was the most beautiful fish i had seen in quite some time. It looked like batman with its sail all extended. The fish had turned a dark color from exhaustion but when it had got to the pier the gentleman who caught the fish did a real CLASS ACT.....HE BROKE THE FISH OFF on purpose to watch it swim away and he turned to the crowd and said the fish knew he had been beaten and he did what was right by releasing it and watching the majestic creature swim away. The Crowd all cheered and clapped and gave him high fives....So i say Congratulations and maybe one of those young kids watching will catch that fish and do the same thing...

Well done.

I think you should release as well but if you want to kill one, its legal.
