Sword fish swimming on the beach, Longboat Key Florida 5.20.2011



Richard sent me this video they took on the beaches of Longboat key, Florida this weekend. It is a of a sword fish swimming on the beaches in merely  a couple feet of water.  This is actually a pretty rare sight considering swordfish are usually  nocturnal and found in 1500′ plus  water during the day light hours. On the west coast of Florida getting that deep you are at a minimum 100-150miles offshore depending where you are.

This is definitely not a case of mistaken identity.  Here is a still shot taken off the video clip which was taken on an iphone.

Now written up on Brandenton.com for more details.

More video and photos got sent to me here, including underwater footage.
