there is absoilutely no reason for a dead billfish. i have spent enough time in the bluewater to agree with capt. ron hamlin(ixtapa, guatemala) and other world-renowned fishermen that if you use bait, a circle hook will result in a released fish. by the way, a billfish caught on a fly is never dead at the boat.
