    Tom, it looks like a good swordfish bait.
    We should give it a try on GEM trip.

    One guy landed a 200 lbs swordfish on a Sumo glow jig at Hudson canyon a few days ago. :)

    Those swords are just oversized catfish Ragman.

    Ya gots to find where they are eating and then try different baits. Squid, hardtails, tinker macs, mullets all make the list of sword baits.

    I am sure that those could work. Besides, you don't have to worry about them tangling themselves. :)

    A friend of mine caught a 195# sword on 4 month old mackeral he had in the freezer. You never know, but live squid is the way to go if they are available in the slick.
