Swordfishing: A Fishing Trip Like No Other
Be prepared to travel 60 plus miles into the Gulf of Mexico when targeting the broadbill swordfish
. Broadbill swordfish are considered by most sport fishermen to be the strongest and hardest fighting fish in the Gulf of Mexico. If you want to test your will, skill, and endurance this is the trip for you.
Let us be very clear: This trip is nothing like the luxurious excursions that many of our clients have come to know and love.
Swordfishing and More!
In fact, the best time to embark on this sea-bound adventure is the 10 days leading up to a full moon
from May to August. While most captains are very proud of their success ratio, these excursions do not always
end in a trophy photo by the day’s end. While many have landed more than one swordfish in a single trip, it is never guaranteed. However, waters often offer up the chance for other pelagic species such as mahi-mahi, tuna, pomfret, oil fish, wahoo and white marlin.
