Gio Gonzalez caught a massive sailfish
Washington Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez loves to fish. During an interview in January, he said one of his goals is to catch a big marlin and throw it back into the ocean. It took him less than a month to accomplish that feat.
Gonzalez went fishing with a group of friends over the weekend and reeled in a massive sailfish. Sailfish are from the same family as marlins, they just have a more distinguished dorsal fin and a larger bill than their relatives. He should consider that mission accomplished.
Gonzalez still has a long way to go if he wants to catch a fish as big as the one Mike Trout’s crew caught last winter, but it’s a start.
