Tuna (Blackfin)

Let’s start with the swordfishing, we had a great group of guys onboard who wanted to catch a swordfish. These guys have been all around the world and have caught everything in the ocean, the only fish left on the bucket list was a day time swordfish. No pressure right? Well after 2 days with no bites we nailed a 157lb swordfish in the last inning, with a happy customer we made it back to the dock with big smiles. The swordfish ate a bointo strip in 1700ft of water, he ate the bait as we were touching bottom for the 10th time of the day. Secondly the Blackfin tunas and mutton snappers have been on fire, from 120ft- 180ft or water. Catching the mutton snapper on live bait on the bottom,(which we provide) and the Blackfin tunas on the kite, also with live bait. In the mix as well we have been catching unexpected sailfish recently, it’s pretty late in the season to be catching sailfish, but we have been catching them consistently every week. I hope all this info helps everyone, Tight Lines
