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.

Awesome Tarpon Trip!

We booked Captain David to take us fishing inshore since my wife gets really seasick. He mentioned that the tide was really good on a particular date so we took it. My son caught his first tarpon about 50lbs along with a barracuda and we released a snook. The inshore waters of Fort Lauderdale are very scenic and Captain David showed us some amazing celebrities homes including Wayne Huizenga where we caught a tarpon right behind his house.  Very cool stuff.  David took measurements of the tarpon and my son now how it hanging in his room. The silver king!
