2016 Swordfishing

Well I’ve made it out on 3 daytime swordfish trips so far in 2016. The first trip we got lucky and on the second drop hooked a 248.5 lber! It was a two hour battle but in the end Scott was victorious and we put the 85” fish in the boat!

The next trip was extremely slow and we never had a swordfish bite. We did catch one lone mahi while drifting for swords. A few days later I fished again and this time we had 3 bites on 7 drops. The first one we missed and never hooked up. The second one we hooked around lunch time. We got the fish about 50′ away and could see he was foul hooked in the side. It wasn’t a big fish, a small keeper, but unfortunately we pulled the hook a few seconds later. The next couple hours were quiet and it wasn’t looking good for us. We did catch a dolphin and a tripletail, so we weren’t completely skunked. We decided to make one more drop and it paid off! Steve, Charlie, and Austin teamed up and put a 75 lber in the boat for dinner!

The weather has been pretty crummy, so we haven’t been able to get out as much as I like, but hopefully this will be a good year again like 2015.

Send me an email to if you’d like to set up a trip. I did get a new boat and should be fishing it sometime in February. It’s a 37′ Freeman and we named it the “Broad Minded”. My Rate will be going up to $2250.
