Sword Fishing 101

Swordfish are the king of the billfish class. Like shark fishing on steroids! Sword fishing can be done in a lot of ways with many different kinds of baits. They most commonly live in 1,200 to 3,000ft of water. We offer daytime and nighttime fishing trips for targeting swordfish. These sea monsters average from 90-200lbs but can grow upwards of 600+lbs. The average fight time is 45 minutes up to 2 hrs. We use all stand up fishing tackle with a standup fishing harness while battling these tough hard fighting fish. Along with a great fight, Swordfish are awesome to eat; they are the white tuna of the Gulf.
