September 2016 Swordfish Report! Giant 411 lb Broadbill Swordfish!

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. Most trips produced 1 fish with the exception of one trip with 2 fish. We didn’t get a bite on 4 of the 5 trips that were zero fish trips, which is very uncommon for September! It’s one thing to get a bite or two and not catch them but strange for this time of year to fish a full day for swords and not have any action. We tagged and released some of the fish and kept the rest dinner. The biggest highlight of the month was a big 411 lb broadbill swordfish! It was a funny story as the charter “no showed”, although it was probably my fault for not having a deposit. Lesson learned though, if you don’t put down a deposit don’t expect me to take you fishing. Anyhow I took my friend Charlie out just before lunch and we hooked the beast. It was just two of us on the boat and after an hour and a half battle we hoisted the big sword over the gunnel and headed back to Bud n’ Mary’s Marina. I’m booked pretty solid the next couple months, but if the weather cooperates there might be a few winter time swords around. If I am booked on the “Broad Minded” already don’t forget we have both the Catch 22 and Bn’M available for swordfish charters. October and November are my two favorite months!

Tight Lines,

Capt. Nick Stanczyk
