If only you knew, which obviously you don’t.
And that’s what you get for assuming

Dude, take it easy...you're taking my reply out of context.

How many anglers do you know can match his story in hooking up a swordfish that quickly and boating it solo on a small skiff? I'm applauding the OP for his success so chill out. No need to be so jumpy on a Sunday morning.

Just a curious guy; why does this fish look BBQ'd at 7:00 in the morning?

Then I'll know what to expect when I catch one next weekend.

    Nice work Frank, was it on a squid or mac?

    What was in it's stomach?

    Very impressive, just like that bomb you got solo last year or was it the year before that.

    When they are really pissed off they turn maroon like that. Like a striped marlin lighting up on a bait?

    just be an assumption though

    Was taken out of context. I re- read your post. My fault totally. My apologies.

    Wanted to try Deep dropping from my small 15' Whaler Dauntless. Left Dana Point at 6:00 am and had the line in at 6:30. Hooked up at 6:45, fish came straight up and broke water 20' from the boat, what a rush! The sword was neon purple and pissed off. Didn't take long to get a gaff into it, but getting it into the boat is another story. Managed to get it in and roped down for the short ride back in flat seas. Weight was 170.3 # at the Dana Point fuel dock. Had the boat cleaned, fish on ice by 10:00 am, not a bad half day of fishing.
