Live Swordfish Beaches at Assateague Island….Then Swims Away

Live Swordfish Beaches at Assateague Island….Then Swims Away

I’ve heard lots of interesting stories in my 25 years of fishing in Ocean City, but this is truly remarkable.  Three surf anglers today witnessed a juvenile swordfish beach itself in the Assateague surf, they took a quick picture, returned it to the ocean and watched it disappear.  And no this is not a joke.

Steven D Cooper, his brother Brian Cooper and his dad Woody Cooper are regular surf fishermen on Assateague, but they’ve never seen anything like this before….and neither have a lot of us.  As the men were fishing at the “Bull Pen” down the Assateague beach Steven says “we watched him beach, put him back and he was gone….poof!”

Here is the picture Steven took on the beach followed by one of a juvenile swordfish photo from the Florida Museum of Natural History.
