That is a good question Tony. I would like some input on that subject as well. There have been a few caught about 65 miles from Port Aransas, out around the east breaks area.. It is a big drop off on the 100 fathom curve..
Hopefully someone will chime in!
I guess that I am not being clear, I am asking....
What does a good swordfishing area look like on a sea chart. How can I tell if an area might be holding swordfish before I even go there.
What makes an area worthy of putting in the time and effort?
I am more than game for a trip.
I like the idea of your squig chain TJ. I do wonder what happens if you get hit in the middle of the chain?
Structure, drop off, temperatur break, and ripped line.
About the squid chain, it was just pop out of my mind, never tested it yet LOL, if it get hit in the middle, we would pull it out of the water, just like what they do on the marlin fishing, bait and switch. If we got hit we would know there might be swordfish in the area ,
Let's come out with an idea that we can try it out.
How about a Swordfish trip with Capt.Eddie on first or second week of June?
Anyone game for it?
I saw a bluefin in the 500-700lb range chasing some dolphin on my next to last sword trip. I had visions of the epic old man and the sea fight on my hands. But I had four srong backs to handle the task. Just if my 50w's had enough Jerry Brown on them. The sword bite has continued to produce for the guys fishing for them. Now is the time to get you one. Tony I will save you the three hundred pounder I have vowed to catch before october.
