What is a Bluefish?

Bluefish (Pomatomus saltatrix) are fierce killing machines that are often called marine piranhas. These aggressive brutes will swim in large schools attacking almost anything smaller than them in feeding frenzies called the “bluefish blitz.” As the name suggests, they have a blue-green and grayish coloring that fades to white on their bellies. With a row of knife-like teeth and a broad forked tail, they are dangerous looking creatures that should be treated with caution to avoid injury.

How big do Bluefish get?

Bluefish reach reproductive age in two years, at which point they’ll range from 15 to 20 inches, which is the size that is most often caught. They can grow up to 31 pounds and 39 inches during their 12-year life span. There are rumors of the “Gator Blues” which are supposedly offshore sea monsters, reaching over 50 inches long, and up to 30 pounds.
