Opah, large, round, and brilliant orange fish that swim in warm waters, are a tough catch as they don’t often travel in schools.

Opah, large, round, and brilliant orange fish that swim in warm waters, are a tough catch as they don’t often travel in schools.

Recently 3 of them were hooked and pulled in by fishermen on a single boat sailing in Southern California waters.

That kind of feat is pretty much unheard of.

On their excursion the trio also caught quite a bit of the expected fare like yellowtail, Bluefin tuna, and yellowfin tuna.

They likely weren’t anticipating hooking as much opah as they did.

According to one of fishermen they were able to get 5 of them to bite, but only three made it onto the boat.

The successful catches weighed in at 124, 151, and a whopping 180 pounds.

They were quick to get a picture and post it on Facebook.

Before long, the shot had around 7thousand likes and was shared over 18 hundred times.

While they were racking up Internet fans, the men dined on sushi and sashimi cut fresh from the day’s catch.

Opah is quite a tasty fish.

Although hard to snag, they are considered to be bountiful and a good alternative to many other species.
