Toronto Sportsmen’s Show: Swimbait Spoils

Today at the Toronto Sportsmen’s Show I did some shopping and registered for a new fishing license. I found some pretty great deals all around, for example right now you can pick up a Quantum Cabo PT baitcaster for only 150 bucks! Unfortunately for me they’re all right handed. I highly recommend that you check out the show this weekend before all the best tax-free deals are gone. I did however spend some time culling the shops for the best swimbait deals. In the photo below you’ll find about 160 dollars or so worth of hot new swimbaits!

Albino Sailfish, The Real Deal!

We first saw what appeared to be an albino sailfish back in 2008. The image did not have a accompanying story with it and I had my doubts about it truly being and albino. Here are some incredible photos from just a couple of months ago near our old fishing grounds in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. As you can see there are images of the fish from several angles and there is no mistake about this one, it is definitely an albino sailfish! It’s extremely rare that any albino fish would grow this size, but a sailfish is the fastest fish in the sea, which clearly works to its advantage when avoiding predators!

These incredible photos were taken by Jon Schwartz

“They were flipping out because they’ve never seen anything like that in their lives, and they started looking at the eyes, and the eyes were red and pink, and they started hollering out albino, albino, and then they called into the marina, and that’s when we learned that it was a special thing.”
