Singing The Blues

Have been hitting the Thomas Point Shoal most nights for the past few weeks. Stripers' have been few and far between, but the topwater action for Blues has been incredible. Tonight it was non-stop action right off the point. As the night was winding down, I has a strange fish hit my plug and immediately go skyward. It was a good distance away so I did not know what to make of it, but clearly it was not of this world. The way it came out of the water reminded me a of a skinny swordfish. As the fish got closer to the boat I thought it was just a foul hooked blue, but when she came over the gunwale, I had my first "?". One of the boats nearby saw the whole thing and gestured "what was that". He came over to take a look and said it was a needle fish...the biggest he had ever seen. cool looking fish...with some nasty teeth. So now I have a new topwater hitting species to target.
