7-13-13 Bn’M strikes back and goes 2 for 2 on broadbill swordfish

It’s been a tough run at swordfishing here lately in Islamorada, Florida Keys. We’ve had a few trips that yielded a bite or two but no catches, a couple trips with no bites, but yesterday we got back on the board catching both bites we had while targeting daytime swordfish! I fished the day before as well and hooked one broadbill we pulled the hook on and then missed a couple other bites, so I had an idea where there would be some fish. We sent our first bait down yesterday, and added some extra light to it, and BAM! Within 2 minutes were were hooked up. The fish wasn’t a monster, but did put up a very good fight for his size, and after a 25 minutes fight, Eric from California, caught his first ever swordfish about 75 lbs. The next few hours were very quite, and him and his dad if they wanted to try for something else on the way home for more action, and they said they wanted to put a little more time in for the swords. Well it was the right call because 20 minutes later we hooked our second swordfish of the day and Greg caught his first ever swordfish! I got some great underwater shots of it too. Hopefully the bite continues to pick up and the difference from a slow day to a great day isn’t much, it just means you have to make your bites count! It’s not always easy considering we average 2000′ of line out each time, but you have to be persistent and you can’t give up on the swords! Check out my selection of daytime swordfish tackle too!
