A beached Swordfish in Worcester Co., Maryland (4/28/2017). Courtesy of Fish in OC. Scott Lenox reports: Steven D Cooper, his brother Brian Cooper and his dad Woody Cooper are regular surf fishermen on Assateague, but they've never seen anything like this before...and neither have a lot of us. As the men were fishing at the 'Bull Pen' down the Assateague beach Steven says "we watched him beach, put him back and he was gone...poof!" Photo by Steven Cooper. (MBP list)
