Default Sailfish killed on the pier???

Last night I was out on the beach with the GF and we decided to walk down the fishing pier. We got to the end and over heard a conversation that a Sail was caught and killed last weekish sometime??????? Said he was around 60lbs? Does anyone know about this or can deny this???? I mean I am not sure why I am shocked, they freaking kill one EVERY YEAR out there. :banghead:banghead:banghead

So what is the problem, if someone wants to eat it. I see nothing wrong with that.

i've hooked sailfish out there before, never been able to get one to the dock, but i've got a few jumps.



we saw 11 in one day the year before last.



not sure if they caught one last week, i wouldn't doubt it though, water was clean

Do you think many pier anglers have a HMS permit to take a sail?

I don't know the answer, you might be right.

I know I needed one for the shark tourney last year and we never lost sight of land so I think it might apply to the fish caught not the waters it was caught in.

I don't believe you need an HMS for the pier, the permit is registered for a particular vessel. Otherwise, pier fishers would alsoneed the HMS permit to keep blackfin tuna.

you do not need a hms permit to keep black fin. you need one if you are going to kill a swordfish or any other marlin, yellow fin or blue fin. if you neededhms for black fin you would need one forand bonita also. here is something of their website

Yes, vessel owners/operators who recreationally fish for or retain regulated Atlantic tunas (bluefin, yellowfin, bigeye, albacore, and skipjack), sharks, swordfish, and billfish in Atlantic Federal waters, including the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea, must obtain an HMS Angling category permit or a HMS Charter/Headboat permit. However, General category vessels may fish recreationally for HMS so long as they are participating in a registered recreational HMS tournament and fishing under tournament rules. Vessels fishing exclusively in state waters are required to obtain the HMS Angling permit if they wish to keep their regulated tunas (bluefin, yellowfin, bigeye, skipjack, and albacore). Vessel owners/operators should check their state regulations regarding the retention of sharks, swordfish, and/or billfish in state waters

You do not need a HMS permit for blackfin, whether you are in state or federal waters. You do for most other species of tuna though.
