Saltwater Fish Life List

Can you catch all 70 different species of saltwater fish?

March Madness
Vote for your favorite in the comments as we switch up our Friday posts for the next few weeks for March Madness. We're putting two of Florida's iconic saltwater fish species head to head for the next two Fridays with the winners competing for the title on the third Friday and we'll be updating our cover photo to include the winning fish. Who will it be this week? Dolphinfish or Red Drum?

*Disclaimer: We know Florida has lots of awesome fish species and it was very difficult to narrow it down to just four so we apologize in advance if your favorite is not included.
