April and Early May 2016 Swordfish report

It’s been a busy spring here swordfishing in Islamorada. We finally had some nice weather days and took advantage of them on our swordfish charters. A lot of the trips have been 1 – 2 bites all day long, but we’ve been getting lucky and have continued the current swordfish catch streak that started in Late March to 15 trips in a row with atleast 1 fish per trip! Our best day was 3 fish, but most of the trips we have caught 1 fish. We tagged and released a few of them, and have kept a fair amount of them. The mahi have been showing up as well, and we’ve caught a few on most of our trips on the way in and out from swordfishing, as well as some while we were drifting for swordfish. As far as tackle we’ve used a variety, including electric, electric assist, and some hand crank stand up fishing. The new 37′ Freeman “Broad Minded” is working out great, as we get in an out from the ground at average of 30 – 34 knots and it’s super stable while drifting. I have a one day at the end of May open (May 30th) and a few days available in June and late July. Send me an email to floridakeysswordfishing@gmail.com when you’d like to try your luck getting a broadbill!
