12-7-12 Islamorada Swordfishing in December! Pair of Broadbills

Today on the Bn’M we had Fred, his son Sam, brother Michael, and their friend Christian. Fred and Michael had caught plenty of swordfish at night before, but they had never tried daytime swordfishing. Sam had caught a swordfish in the daytime before, but it was on an electric reel so he decided he’d come with his Dad (Fred) and his Uncle Michael to try to catch one manually in Islamorada, on the HAND CRANK! We got a cheap bite the first drop, but the fish just pulled on the bait one time. We didn’t get a bite the 2nd drop, but the third drop was the charm. Sam got in the chair and went to work after we hooked a sword 1600′ down. We got the fish up and decided to keep it, since we wanted fresh swordfish for dinner. It wasn’t big, but it was legal, about 50 lbs. We had a couple more uneventful bites the next few drops, but we decided to make one more drop. Christian was up in the rotation and had never caught a fish from a fight chair before. It was about 3 p.m. and we were getting ready to wrap it up, and BAM! We had a bite. After a couple minutes we hooked the sword and he was swimming to the surface. Christian went to work and after a 15 minute fight we sank the gaffs into a 65 lb swordfish. We were happy to have caught 2 broadbill swordfish today, even though they weren’t monsters we were happy to see them! We headed back to Bud N’ Mary’s Marina and cleaned up the fish and sent the guys home with plenty of fresh swordfish steaks.
