Hook, line, and sinker!  A Florida fisherman reels in a rare, and endangered fish.

Dustin Richter heard his reel spinning, and it turns out, he hooked a huge sawfish.  For an hour, he battled to bring the creature to shore.  He finally did, just long enough to take a picture and release it.

Sawfish are shark-like fish with long, thin snouts, covered in razor-sharp teeth. The snout looks like a saw.
