Here is a Pic of two nice slobs that Capt. Devlin Rousel caught a few nights ago. He was fishing out of Venice, La. He told me they weighed in at 218 and 176. www.reelpeace.com

Be careful at night with the swordie's. I've had a few hairy moments with those broadbills. Very powerful fish and if they hit the boat green, watch out.
They are hard on the gelcoat, angler and gaff man. I've seen a guy get yanked overboard with a huge flying gaff that he couldn't get to release in time. That broadbill slashing sideways can put 1/4" deep ruts in your boats fiberglass. Sword fishing is a different ballgame. If you're impatient, don't play the game.
