Our last trip in… Read full fishing report

October/November 2016 Islamorada Swordfish Report


I only fished a few swordfish charters in October, mostly because I was out of town fishing for 10 days during the month and we had a lot of windy weather  which resulted in canceling the majority of the trips during the month. One trip produced one small swordfish that we tagged and released, another… Read full fishing report

This September was a tricky one on swordfish here in Islamorada, Florida Keys. Usually September is one of the best and most consistent months for them, but we saw both good and bad fishing during the month. We fished 13 trips and landed fish on 8 of them.

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.

4/13/16 swordfish

Sorry I’ve been slacking a little bit on my blog lately. The swordfish bite was non existent for me in February on the few trips I did, but in March and and so far in April it has picked up a little bit. I am absolutely loving my new 37′ Freeman “Broad Minded“. It’s awesome running… Read full fishing report

Swordfishing in November 2015 with a 7 fish trip!


I was able to fish 6 swordfish charters here the first couple weeks of November. I had to cancel a few days cause the wind, but since I can’t control the weather it’s just part of the game. On the first trip we had a group of family and friends out and wound up catching… Read full fishing report

shimano beast master sword

I fished 4 trips the last couple weeks, but unfortunately had to cancel my last 7 because it’s been too rough. When it blows 18 – 25 knots its super uncomfortable to drift in the gulf stream and wait for a strike. Also things on the boat break when it rough. Anyhow we had 3… Read full fishing report
