The SoCal deep drop broadbill fishery has progressed to the point where there will be an IGFA tournament here in November.


Anyone here going to be fishing the tournament? I will try to hang around the weigh station in San Diego.

I was in Catalina last weekend and the boat Tail Chaser showed up to the pier with a nice swordfish, they said it was caught on deep drop. Pretty cool to see and it was a nice sized fish. Would be cool to see this tournament weigh in.

    I heard the prizes are “bragging rights “
    Its pretty expensive to give up your spot for bragging rights.
