4/7/14 April winds don’t stop Capt. Scott

It’s definitely spring here while swordfishing in Islamorada. We’ve had some windy days the past week, with 15-22 knot winds, but it didn’t stop Capt. Scott Stanczyk on the Catch 22 from getting out on swordfish charters. The first trip was a few days ago. They reported a very strong, thick current. Unfortunately it made the deep dropping very tricky. They did manage 1 bite, but never really came tight on it. Each drift it was taking tons of line to keep the bait down in the “zone”. They also had an unfortunate incident when they broke the line and lost the rig. But it’s fishing and that happens occasionally. The good news is they had another daytime swordfish rod rigged and ready to drop. But it just wasn’t meant to be that day. On the 7th they got out again for another broadbill trip and he said the current had slowed way down, and it was a much more manageable condition to deep drop in. The first drop was quite, but the next handful of drops they had bites every drift! They managed to release one broadbill swordfish around 40 lbs. The rest of the swordfish beat the bait up, but never really ate it. It was encouraging to hear there was good action that day, and it goes to show you what a couple days difference can do with the fish! They were still happy to catch the one sword, and I’m anxious to get back out there. Send me an email at when you want to try your luck at swordfishing!
