Trolling for mahi-mahi in 800 feet of water on a sunny day, Ruth and Harold Pinder saw this baby turtle camouflaged in a patch of seaweed. The Turtle Hospital in Marathon identified it as a baby loggerhead, about 8 inches long from head to tail, sleeping in the sargassum. “This amazing sighting made our day on the water extra special,” Ruth says.
