Swordfishing Charters

unnamed-11Swordfish have become one of the most popular and sought after gamefish in the world. Swordfish can be found in many deep waters of the world, however, Fort Lauderdale and Miami rivals anywhere as one of the best places to hook up with the Gladiator of the Sea. They are incredibly strong and stubborn fighters with great speed. Once hooked, average encounters last more than a few hours. Swordfish are extremely good eating and with their ability to jump from the sea they offer the ultimate offshore challenge while deep sea fishing in Fort Lauderdale.

Swordfish are chunky, powerfully built fish. The distinguishing feature of Swordfish often seen off of Fort Lauderdale is the huge bill or sword – much longer and wider than the bills of Marlin and Sailfish. The bill is used to kill prey. The swordfish rises from beneath a school of fish, swinging the sword from side to side, then consuming the fish killed.

Daytime swordfishing is a recent trend off the Florida coast for many local sport fisherman, especially here in Fort Lauderdale. We have been innovative in tweaking our own strategies and have met with great success.

Similar to Nighttime Swordfishing, we run 14-16 miles off the coast of Fort Lauderdale to the middle of the Gulf Stream current and fish in depths of 800 feet -1,800 feet. Yet, it is totally different from nighttime swordfishing.

We only fish one rod on the bottom with surface baits for by-catch. There is also a great chance of hooking a Marlin while you’re deep sea fishing offshore during the day. Manual or electric reels depending on your preference – just remember that bait is a long way down and it’s more than likely you’ll be passing the rod to your buddies!

Whether you choose to go Nighttime Swordfishing or Daytime Swordfishing, it’s a great way to catch a world-class game fish, right off Ft. Lauderdale’s coast.

pam24We fish in depths of 800 feet -1,800 feet, 14-16 miles off the coast of Fort Lauderdale to the middle of the Gulf Stream current. Equipped with top of the line Penn and Shimano tackle, be ready to endure the grueling and punishing game these fish deliver.

Swordfishing in Fort Lauderdale is only a one hour run to the most fertile grounds off the Southeast coast. It will definitely put you in the zone. The techniques we employ include drifting in the Gulf Stream current with a variety of dead squid and live bait. The spread ranges from 500 feet depths to surface baits. Generally, we fish a spread of 5-6 lines depending on wind and current. A Hydro glow light is used to illuminate the water and attract their attention.

While waiting for a bite there is an abundance of life that is attracted to the lights as well, including Squid, Mackerel, Flying Fish, Dolphin, and often our intended quarry. When that Swordfis h takes the bait, there isn’t any rush in the world to match it. Swordfish are famous for taking brutal runs and intense dives.

TESTIMONIALS

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.
