Photographer's Note

Red colored flag means catch and release of fish over 20 lbs.
White Flag with blue colored marlin in the center is Blue Marlin catch and release.
White Flag with blue sailfish is the same thing.
Green Flag with white tuna is catch and release of skipjack tuna.
White Flag with blue tuna means catch and release of tuna.
Red flag with white shark means catch and release of shark.
The flags vary a little from place to place.
Orange with white wahoo is catch and release of wahoo.
There are a bunch more, but you get the idea.

Red Flag with a hook means you hooked up on a fish. (Also means you lost it, not sure why you would want to boast about that.)
In south Florida the only one you with really see the most is a small red triangle flag. That more or less means you caught a sailfish. On a good day you will have multiple flags flying.
