Yeah they max out at 6 feet which seems pretty big when you are pulling it out of a net They tend die pretty quickly in a gillnet unfortunately as compared to the bull sharks we normally catch. The bulls can normally be worked up and released live and very angry.

NICE! I've been trying to encourage people to keep native marine species for years with very little success .

That redspotted sunfish, was it flushed into saltwater? (Sorry not familiar with all the areas).

I also have a question regarding yellowspotted seatrout: can they venture into fresh water as adults?

Yes the redspotted sunfish was washed offshore, maybe from the Mississippi River. I don't know about the yelliwspotted seatrout I'll have to do some research.
