This 17-Foot, 700-Pound Sawfish is an Absolute Dinosaur

This 700-pound sawfish is a once in a lifetime catch!

As Joshua Jorgensen was in the process of filming an episode for BlacktipH Fishing, he hooked this monster 700-pound sawfish.

Sawfish are native to florida waters, but one this size is an extremely rare catch. Check out the amazing footage of this awesome catch and release.

This monster fish pulled the boat around like it was nothing and led the anglers to believe it was a massive stingray. It looks like their guess wasn’t too far off. While sawfish have many characteristics similar to sharks, they actually belong to the ray family.

Jorgensen called the FWC to get proper information on how to successfully measure and release the fish without causing harm to either parties.

The fish was estimated to be over 17 feet long and around 700 pounds. This is an amazing catch that will not be forgotten any time soon.
