Fort Lauderdale Daytime Swordfish Fishing Bite

June 22nd, 2010

Today, my buddy Ed, his wife, Alan and I headed offshore aboard Ed’s 54′ Viking boat in 5-7 ft swells in search of the Daytime Swordfish. Once we reached our destination, Alan and I were ready to rock and roll in the cockpit and make a drop. Our first drop of the day consisted of a 12 lb lead in 1,950 ft of deep blue water. We waited patiently for the bite and after 45 minutes, it was time to reel it up and go for round two. We rigged up a fancy bait and this time dropped it down in 1,750 ft of water. Within 30 minutes, we got a nice bite but it didn’t last long. Ed made a 3-mile move south and after 30 more minutes we were hooked. It was sloppy out there but Ed managed to hold the boat right on top of the fish. As soon as Alan removed the lead, the Daytime Broadbill swam up to the surface. Nice fish!

I look forward to fishing with you guys again, just in more comfortable seas!

What An Adventure!

I never leave reviews, but we had such a good time, I wanted to share with others. Captain David and his guys are top notch, you can tell as soon as you pull up that you have booked a great trip. We went out with them in April 2015 and we were told this was one of the best months for fishing off South Florida. The captain decided to fly kites (amazing!) to dangle baits so that the fish can’t see the hooks. I have never seen this, but it was amazing to see them do it. Within a few minutes we had a first sailfish on and then another hit. A double header! We landed both fish and the day went on just like that. We were watching the baits dangle on the surface all day.  Other boats in the area were “trolling” and weren’t catching any. David said it was because the water was so clear that it was important to kite fish.  I highly recommend booking them.
