Barnegat Light longline boat’s surprise catch

You can file this in one in the category of unique catches. An opah weighing 125 pounds was landed by longline vessel Alexandria Dawn, which docks at Viking Village in Barnegat Light.  The boat returned Aug.4 from nearly two weeks of fishing for tuna and swordfish at the Georges Banks, near the Canadian line. The vessel’s Captain Bob Brewster made about two dozen sets, one of which caught the opah, said Viking Village employee Austin Schwerzel, who photographed the crew with the fish. >click to read< 15:02
