How We Target swordfish:
- Nighttime drifting dead and live bait with floats and glow sticks – 4 baits are staggered from 50′ down to 300′ of water
- Daytime fishing involves using an electric LP reel and fishing the baits 1,400 to 1,700 feet down to the bottom.
Time of the Year:
In South Florida fishing off Fort Lauderdale, we have a year round fishery with the winter months providing larger fish and summer months having more hook ups per drift.
