Swap swordfishing trip for interesting hunt

Postby ballyhu » Fri Oct 04, 2013 5:41 am

I live in the West Palm Beach area of SE Florida. I have a good boat and regularly catch Swordfish. Because of the gulfstream's proximity this is one of the few places in the world where a consistent swordfishery exists at a reasonable distance from shore. The techniques are complicated and not that many people have taken the time and invested what's required to master them. It's pretty exciting when you have a good day and one you'll never forget.

I'm interested in a hunt that would be equally as memorable and am open to just about any game and location except bears which really just don't interest me.

You catch them during the day too?

Always thought swordfishing was a night time thing.

Very cool at any rate! :thumbsup:

We catch them day or night. About 5 years ago we discovered that they go down close to the bottom during the day and rise to near surface, following the squid, at night. Then all we had to do was figure out how to get a bait down to 1800' in 5 knots of gulf stream current to catch them during the day. Lots of trial and error.
