We got out yesterday for some daytime Sword fishing and it payed off. We hooked up at 2:30 and my Dad fought him hard until 4:00 and on the 3rd leader attempt we got him in range of the gaff and it was all over..... The fish fought hard till the end and even jumped about half way out of the water twice. We had a small crew of 3 so we missed a chance at some great video footage and I was a little late with the camera to get a pic of the jumping but you can see where it landed. This is by far my Dads best catch and it sure was awesome to see. The fish weighed 260.2 lbs on Fishermans Warf's digital scale. As far as I know this is the first Sword caught durring the day in Texas, if anyone knows different I would like to know. Here are some pics.
