10-15-13 A few sword strikes…

We had been watching the weather closely the past few days, trying to pick the best day to go swordfishing. We finally decided on the 15th aboard the Bn’M II, as we expected 10 knot winds. Well we all know that sometimes the weather forecasts are off a little, and this day was no different. We had 15 – 18 knots winds most the day, and a few periods where it was 20 knots. We are able to still fish when it’s windy, but it’s just not as comfortable and easy as when it’s calmer seas. We ran to where we had lots of action the week prior and sent down a bait. Within about 20 minutes we had a “whack”. The tip bounced a couple times, and I pictured a sword slashing at the bait. We kept the bait down there 10 more minutes, but nothing happened. We decide to check the bait to make sure he didn’t tangle it up, but sure enough it’s fine. We make a second drift. The exact same thing happens. Now we know they’re down there, but they aren’t feeding. We make a third drift, and sure enough, whack whack, but then nothing. We keep the bait down a while longer and then start to crank on it. The rod tip loads up, and we are hooked up! Fish on! Vic gets in the chair and the fish fights funny, but we figure it’s just a foul hooked sword. We get the fish up the boat, and it’s not a sword. It’s a 22.5 lb bigscale pomfret! This was the 4th one I’ve caught, and definitely the biggest. We continue to swordfish the rest of the day , but it’s very slow. No bites until the very last drop. We get a whack. Then a few minutes later the fish grabs the bait and goes to run, pulling the tip down towards the water, but then he’s gone. The excitement only last a mere second. I think the fish will be back to feeding more aggressively on the back side of the upcoming full moon. So fish beware next week! We’re coming for you!
