A 533 lbs swordfish was landed on an overnight trip on the Franes Fleet in RI last Oct. I think this is the biggest swordfish landed on any party boat.
The fork length was over 8 ft with a 66 inch girth.

Awesome batch of a lifetime !

(lurker unlurking)

I recently caught a 150lb swordfish in Kenya on a 50 Tiagra. Hooked it just before sunrise, and when it got light it dived and I spent 2 and a half hours fighting it. Hats of to the 30 minute fight! I reckon I need a dress and a handbag.

Nico,

Wellcome aboard, leave the dress and handbag outside :)



Congrats to the Angler on a catch of a lifetime, the stars were all aligned.

For many years the largest Broadbill caught in Oz waters was 560# ( no need to ask who .. He He )
the largest is now a fish over 600# I believe.

Thats depressing, I had 3 overnighters scheduled on that boat last year between the end of september and october and they were all canceled due to weather. Then you see this...
