We had a great overnight trip, the weather was great and the seas were calm! Our night started off a little slow for the first couple hours so we decided to make a short move to another area. When we put our first line down at the new area it didn't take long to get the bite!! The swordfish ate the bait and swam up to the boat before we knew she had eaten and we were able to hook her up right behind the boat!! Unfortunately, we ended up pulling the hook on a that fish. We set up on a new drift after that and ended up getting hooked up around 2 am!! After more than 2 hours we landed our big sword and she went absolutely crazy when we pulled her in the boat!!! It was a great trip, we ended up 1 for 2 on swordfish, 9 dolphin, wahoo, and a hand full of tile fish.
