Maryland fishermen claim to have made rare moonfish catch

Fishermen claim to have made rare catch off Ocean City coast

The first bite resulted in a almost 80 pound swordfish on the boat, but it was what bit after they cast their next line that caught the crew by surprise.

On Sunday, four men, Captain Austin Ensor, James Doerzbach, Brian Stewart, and Tommy Clark, caught a huge 105.4 pound opah.

"An hour and 15 minutes into the fight, I would say this is when we started to realize it was something different", he said. It can best be described a sa cross between a swordfish and a tuna. After over an hour, they reeled it in.

"The only reason I knew it was an opah is because I follow some friends out on the West Coast and some friends in Hawaii on the big island over there that catch them periodically, and I have seen them in Instagram posts and things like that, and then I saw him come up and I said it's an opah", said Ensor.

International Trade Commission, which is scheduled to make its final determinations by December 18, 2017. Among other things, the Trump administration wants to eliminate NAFTA's arbitration process.

"It was great", said Ensor. It is also the only known warm-blooded fish, giving it an advantage as a predator in the depths of the ocean. Ensor isn't sure how the fish got all the way to Maryland, noting that the Gulf Stream is "relatively close, about 100 miles away.so maybe he got a little lost".

Ensor and his crew have planned to enjoy the fish, which is known for a rich and creamy taste.

Gregg Bortz with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources said they are looking into the catch, but can not now confirm it, or if this is the first time an opah has been caught in Maryland.
