    Good fishing for us on Feb. 21, went out targeting YFT had a report that they were 10 to 15 miles SW of El Banco got to the area with a few other boats with not much going on, we put out a pair of Braid Marauders and 2 cedar plugs, few fish braking water but not holding, after an hour or so i saw a fin that made me look closer and realized it was a swordfish , started screaming to Abel live bait and he got to the bow but before casting bait we slamed bait for it not to be so lively , he cast it with in 2 feet from his mouth and fish sunk and took it right away put boat in gear and it was game on for 9 hrs and 38 min.
    My congratulations to Angler Ralph he did one heck of a fight.
    We hooked up at 11am and landed fish by 8.40 pm, several times while fighting fish we had tunas all around the boat.

    This is a whole seperate fishery on the east coast that might bring in more anglers from there if you guys were promoting it and geared to do more night fishing, deep drops with glow sticks, etc.

    The fact that you are seeing them on top is a pretty good indication that more than a few might be in the area.

    The other one no one specializses in is wahoo in PV.


    Sorry this sounds like preaching. You captains already know the score.

    Good job! Would love to get a sword....good call on smackin the bait...I think a wounded bait triggers a strike from billfish that would maybe not be interested in eating.
    My crew's out today fishing 1150 from Cabo & told them to be on the lookout for Swords. Last Feb/Mar was a good year out of Cabo with some nice ones taken.

    Wow! That light a leader and bill wrapped (you can see the crease).

    That's testement to the leader material whatever brand and the angler keeping good pressure on the fish so the line could'nt chaf on the bill.
