December Daytime Swordfishing Can't Post

December 1st, 2010

Today was a great day for the Lady Pamela fishing fleet. One of our smaller boats, a 27’ Ocean Master center console, went daytime swordfishing to see if the cold front would make them snap. The cold front was expected to move through around 3 PM, so Mike left the dock at 8 AM sharp. Around 9 PM, Mike was sitting in fertile grounds and made his first drop in 1,800 ft of water with Dolphin belly. Our first drop didn’t attract any Swordfish so we made a move to the south. Our second drop of the day provided a 2 ˝ hour battle with a big Broadbill Swordfish. The current was kicking at 2 knots with a S SW wind. When the fish came to the surface, Brett threw the harpoon as Mike gaffed the Swordfish. When we got the tail rope on the fish, he went nuts. I had to call over another boat to help us get this monster fish in the boat. It took 5 of us to get the 450 lb’er in our 27 footer. Nice fish with a 103” fork length.

Tight Lines!
