Daytime Deep Drop Swordfish Fishing
Miami is the best place in the world to catch a day time Swordfish. We have a strong population of Swordfish that live on, or near the bottom of the deep ocean continental drop off. Starting at about 16 miles off Miami & Miami Beach continental drop begins. The bottom is around 900 feet deep and in a short amount distance the bottom will fall off to more than 2500 foot.
We have devised a method of fishing where we can place a bait on or near the bottom in nearly 1,600 – 1,900 feet of water. We can keep a sewn bait with in 100 foot of the bottom slow trolling at about 1.5 to 2.5 knots in 3 – 5 knots of Gulf Steam Current. We use 7 to 12 lb. of lead to keep the bait down in the strike zone. With the use new super thin spectra fishing lines in as light as 65lb and as heavy as 100lb to fight the strong Gulf Stream Current and keep the bait effectively on the bottom.
The bites are subtle, but noticeable. When the slack line and belly from the current is retrived the rod begins to load up, IT’S GAME ON ! These fish pull hard and make violent runs, changing directions on a dime. They will swim up 1,500+ feet & make amazing jumps. In a split second the Swordfish will pull out more than 1,000 foot of line in a line stretching run back to the bottom.
Swordfish fights can go on for hours, although a few fish have been caught in less than 30 minutes. There is no more exiting Deep Sea Big Game Sport Fishing than hooking a giant Swordfish more than 1,800 foot down and then seing that big fish breach the surface and jump in to the air.
