REEL WORK Sportfishing March 9, 2007
Well, it’s been a really good week for fishing. We caught a lot of Kingfish and there are still a few Wahoo being caught. There have also been a few Sailfish and some Hammerhead Sharks around. Wednesday night we took a charter captain and his family from North Carolina out Swordfishing. We caught a small Swordfish about fifteen minutes after we put our baits out. Then another keeper size Swordfish an hour later. We reset after that fish and got a nice fish on shortly after that. That one proved a bit more difficult. It fought for about an hour until we got the leader, but as things happen with fishing, the leader broke before we could gaff it. That was all before 9:30. We reset again around 10:00 and shortly after that it started raining. That lasted till 11:00 and we decided to call it a night. We were bringing in the baits when I saw some baitfish around the underwater light. We had caught about fifteen Tinker Mackerel when I looked over the side of the boat and saw another Swordfish swim through the light. We put a couple of baits out, but didn’t get the fish to eat. It was a great night and we all went home happy. Well that’s all for now, hope to see you soon.
