Islamorada Swordfishing, the ULTIMATE Florida Keys Fishing Charter...
Swordfishing in the Florida Keys is absolutely amazing! Battling these true warriors of the open ocean is something that you will never forget! Swordfish are definitely one of the coolest fish we catch, and even the smaller ones can take an experienced angler for the ride of their life!
While the majority of this fishing is done during the day, we are also equipped to be able to catch them at night. Night fishing was the original method we used for years; however, we learned how to catch them during the day. The largest of this species is generally caught during the day, and we also seem to get more bites, so this is the preferred method for us and most anglers. I guarantee you it is unlike anything you have ever experienced and is definitely something that every fisherman should experience at least once!
Swordfishing in Islamorada
We are very lucky here in Islamorada to have this fantastic fishery. We locate ourselves right in the middle of the “freeway” to catch these magnificent animals in their migratory pattern. The best part is that they are here all year long! We generally don’t fish as many days for these guys during the winter as we do in summer and fall due to the rough seas that are brought by cold fronts in the winter. However, when the winds stop, it is possible if the timing is right! Also, some of the best bites we have ever had have been during the winter months!
So, come on down and check out what Islamorada Swordfishing has to offer! It is absolutely amazing!
Let the Swordfishing battle begin...
You are in a full harness and attached to the rod in the stand up position! No chairs here! This is man against the “Prince of Darkness” (Swordfish’s Nickname) in a stand-up, straight up battle! These fish can take you deep or stay on top. The second you get cocky, they will show you why they are nicknamed the “Prince of Darkness”. They will sound on you so fast that you will pray to get line back on the reel! It is an amazing sight to see! Some anglers choose to fight them the entire time with the electric reel. This is because a lot of anglers choose not to reel in a mile of line. Either way, we have you covered. It is entirely up to the angler how he or she chooses to battle these incredible animals. For those that are attempting to complete one of the prestigious “slams”, we are prepared for breakaway leads with traditional conventional tackle as well. Just make sure your Captain knows ahead of time what you desire, and he will make sure you have what you need.
