Broadbill bite picks up the first week of May!

We finally have a little streak of catches this year while out day time swordfishing. I’ve caught fish my last three trips in a row. Capt. Scott aboard the Catch 22 has caught swordfish both of his last trips too. On the 6th he took out a charter and they missed an early bite, and then fought one close to the surface which got off. They didn’t give up though, and on the last drop they caught an 80 lb broadbill. They also caught a handful of nice mahi, which is a bonus and happens this time of year while out on swordfishing charters. I took my new boat, Bn’M ll, out on the 8th of May, and we had Charles catch his first ever broadbill swordfish. It wasn’t a monster but big enough for dinner, about 50 lbs. However, the next drop we hooked “Fred”. Fred is the name we have given the swordfish we have been after ever since we started swordfishing. She’s a 500 + lb broadbill that has eluded us so far. Unfortunately “Fred” got foul hooked on the bite, in the skin on her back. We were hooked up two hours before pulling the hook, but the fish did swim 50′ below the boat and I got an underwater picture off my go pro. Judging by the size of my bait to her back I feel like this fish was every bit of 600 -700 lbs. The good news is she’s still out there, but the bad news is I still need to catch forklift “Fred”. The day before than on the Bn’M we had Rob from Texas out. He wanted to cross a swordfish off his bucket list. His wife Julie went first though, and fought a broadbill within 300 of the boat before pulling the hook. He went next and we tag and released a juvenile broadbill. Hopefully we’ll catch it again one day. On the Bn’M ll we also caught a surprise barrel fish and then a nice bull mahi. May through November is my favorite time to swordfish, so if you’re ready to give it a shot, send us an email at Floridakeysswordfishing@gmail.com
