    We have released more swords than any boat in the world prob this year alone... But they ate good eating;)... Out of around the last 500 sails white marlin and blue marlin we have taken in 3 :)... Swords we take the ones that are hooked deep ... This trip was for a child's record we killed the hell out of those 2 ;).... Brett

    Who cares?

    These guys are running a world class operation right now and killing a few swordies for the table is awesome.

    Congrats guys. You are rewriting the book.

    Brett that is amazing. Congratulations on the best swordfishing I have ever heard of. I looked online but can't find any charter info. Are you available for charter? If so can you please post info or PM me. That is if you don't mind me killing one!!!

    That is awesome great going catching so many billfish. I am glad that you clarified you mostly catch and release, which I would assume you would do as a charter business, but clarification for those who assume the glass is half empty as opposed to the glass is half full.
