What are the three most popular saltwater game fish?

Saltwater game fish are some angler’s favorite choices, and with good reason. If you are after one type of fish, go for your favorite and tailor your fishing methods to attract that fish. If you just want a great catch, consider these tips…

The most popular game fish sought by saltwater fishing enthusiasts will almost always vary with the locations in which you have the opportunity to catch fish. Certain fish are more popular in certain locations than they are in others, but as a generalization, it would be fairly safe to say that no matter where you are, the lure of big game fish that inhabit the briney deep occasionally call out to every avid saltwater angler…

Now, whether you are fishing for big game sport or for your table (or any combination of the afore mentioned) there are several fish. Among the most popular saltwater fish you will always see Tuna and Marlin listed as being in the top two, not just because they are found almost everywhere from the coasts of the United States to Australia, and all around the continental shelf, but because they are simply great fish to catch. The next on the list can be debated.

Consider barracuda, shark, mackerel, bonefish, swordfish, sea trout, redfish, or some other species your favorite choices for the third spot in the most popular saltwater species. It will likely depend on a matter of personal preference and the locations in which you intend to fish, and whether you are looking for the thrill of the catch, a trophy fish, or a fish for your table.
