Default Sunfish encounter Video!

While we were cobia fishing, I saw a huge fin come out of the water. At first I thought it was a huge shark. Then , as I checked it out, I noticed it was a HUGE Sunfish. I got some pretty awesome footage of it. Here is the video.

Realtor, MrFish, below me and 3 others like this.

Sunfish are common, here, at this time of year.

Very nice video. I've been out kayak fishing in the Gulf for 11 years now and I've never seen a giant sunfish (yet).

Thanks for sharing the video.

I would suggest looking out for them, this time of year. That fish is so dense and boney that it will do a job on running gear. Friend of mine hit one last year and bent the shaft, rudder, prop, everything.
