I don't think any one thought they were on the east coast. Yes these boys have been doing it lately. The sword bite is unreal right now on the mid Atlantic. I went out the other day to do some drops and got side tracked when the pot balls were ate up in mahi. So needless to say I got side tracked.

They are still a rare fish caught as by-catch mostly recreationally on the west coast. I was thrilled to catch one in San Diego, you must be beaming to catch one there, congrats!

As day dropping becomes more popular up North I'm sure more of them will be caught along with othe species.

I don't know about that. I was under the impression they were pacific only fish. However, based on some reading, they are found from Argentina all the way to the Grand Banks. I think they are more of a temperate climate fish than tropical. We will probably see more caught now that deep dropping is becoming more popular from MD on north.

I don't think the Opah is a tropical fish at all. If you look at the waters they're caught in over in the Pacific they're quite cold most of the year. Furthermore, the temp 1000' down never really changes.

The east coast long liners catch a few all over Atlantic.

The yard house in gas lamp district also told me that Grouper was an Ok fish from FL and reccomended some farm raised fiah. My wife literally laughed at the waitress.

Very good to eat, they have distinctly different muscle groups with different flavors/textures. There have been a couple caught down here by the daytime fleet. Very rare though, less than a handful in the 10 or so years of the fishery here. Longline boats on east coast get a couple, again very rare. Hawaiian longline fleet catches a lot of them deep setting for bigeye, they are also known as moonfish. They can move a lot faster and pull harder than you would think.
