Default Weird wound on a dolphin

Caulght this fish today with a fairly new wound on it. Looks like a bill wound. By the shape of the wound and penatration, we think it was a blue spear mark....

Looks like he got in the wheel. If that fish was hungry enough to eat with that wound, wow!

A bill while he was on the line maybe? Look very fresh... You never know.

I caught one last year that was nearly cut in half. They are pretty durable.

Not much to report Mike. Couple of meatfish and one shot at a sail which wouldn't eat. Had another sail, little bitty feller no more than 25 pounds jump and act crazynext to the spread but not come in it. Like everyone else, got pounded pretty good coming in by a nice thunderstorm. Dat's it....

I've seen some old wounds on dolphin in the past that may have been nasty when inflicted but had healed up...
