From bright yellow mouths, to the many acute black spots lining its dorsal, this beautiful fish has a mysterious undertone and the ability to unite anglers regardless of estuary.

Additionally, the qualities required to pursue these fish, like patience and understanding, speaks volumes to the how we live our lives and interact with each other.
