We've caught swordfish on our last 3 trips on the BNM out of Bud n' Mary's Marina in Islamorada, FL. The Catch 22 also had a great day with 2 broadbills and a mako yesterday. On the BNM we had Luke from Australia out for some daytime swordfishing two days in a row. The first drop on the first day he caught his very first broadbill which was a 113 lbs. His girlfriend Sarah also released her first swordfish at the end of the day. On day two we had a very slow morning. Finally late in the afternoon we had a solid hook up with a nice sword. I didn't realize the fish was as big as it was until I saw him racing around the boat lit up with an electric blue colored back. After a quick swim on top the sword went down 700 feet and Luke went to work. After 1 hour and 30 minutes we had the gaffs into a fat 248# Broadbill! Congratulations Luke!

Awesome fish!



Just curious, where do you gaff one that you can then release it to survive? In the mouth?
