Catching a smalltooth sawfish on Sanibel Island, Florida was unexpected

Kevin Butcher’s age is 51 years old. He said he has been fishing most of his life. When he went fishing on Sanibel Island recently, he caught a fish he had never seen before himself.

“He reminded me of a character from Pirates of the Caribbean,” Butcher said.

Prehistoric times also come to mind when Butcher, a Minnesota native, laid eyes on a smalltooth sawfish he caught Sept. 9 with a Pennsylvania fishing rod and Penn 5500 VI reel. He said he was fishing on the beach near West Gulf Drive below where the Shalimar Cottages and Hotel stood before Hurricane Ian.
