No, his eye was perfect, was a odd hookup, was trying to feed him off a blk/purp
Wide range with a pitch, thats the bottom half of the skirt hanging Eye level, just not sure how he got the scratch across his snout, before the hook went in the snout in the opposite direction...I dunno..

Pretty fish and pics! Bill-less billfish seem like a somewhat common occurrence. I would think it broke defending itself or hitting a structure while chasing a fish.
