11-19-12 Mid November Swordfishing Report

The Catch 22 fished two days the past week and the Bn’M fished one day for daytime swordfish. The first trip the Catch 22 took was on the 13th and it was a very slow day. They had one mystery bite on a squid that may have been a swordfish, but they weren’t certain. Unfortunately it also blew 20+ knots and was a rough day. On the 15th the Bn’M fished with Dave and his 2 friends. It was still on the choppy side, both Dave and one of his buddies were sea sick as soon as we reached the swordfish grounds. Fortunately we went to the right spot because on the first drift we hooked a nice Broadbill. After 20 minutes of cranking the fish made a spectacular jump behind the boat. I knew we had on a nice sword! Dave was patient in the chair and put the right amount of pressure on the fish, not too much, not too little. After 45 minutes we got the fish on the leader and were able to get the gaffs into a healthy 194 lb Broadbill Swordfish! Everyone was happy and we decided to call it an early day since we had a 2 hour ride home in the choppy conditions. The Catch 22 fished yesterday, on the 18th, and had a spectacular day. They caught about a dozen schoolie mahi on the way out to the sword grounds. They made 5 drops and hooked 4 fish. They landed 3, from 40 to 65 lbs, and lost the biggest fish about 30′ away after a 2 hour battle in the chair! Capt. Scott guessed the fish to weigh close to 250 lbs. Oh Well, that’s fishing, especially swordfishing! Some just get away! Hopefully the weather lays down a little bit the next couple of weeks and we can get back out there for some dropping.
