Nighttime Swordfish Fishing in Fort Lauderdale

Last night we had a very successful Saturday night Swordfish trip offshore Fort Lauderdale. A southeast wind made for a flat calm 16 mile run to Swordfish grounds. Around 8:30 PM, the wind turned out of the west, the moon rose and we deployed our 4 baits. It didn’t take long for a double header to eat. Sam caught her Swordfish on the tip rod with a live tinker mackerel positioned 100 ft down in 1,000 ft of water. The 39″ fork length Swordfish put up a fight and was expertly released for a future fight. Scott caught Swordfish #2 on the 200 ft rod. His 48″ incher put up a 25 minute battle before it was boated into the Lady Pamela. After Scott’s catch, we packed up and relocated 8 miles to the south. At 11:30 PM we hooked up with our 3rd Broadbill Swordfish of the night. Sam did one helluva job and landed a 57″ fork length Swordfish. Baits went back out immediately and Scott hooked Swordfish #4 on a 70 VSW Penn stand up rod. The Swordfish gave us a 30 minute show, jumping out of the water and taking deep dives. Scott landed our fourth Swordfish of the night with a 56″ inch fork length.

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.
