Default 3/30/13 Sword

With the promising weather forcast this weekend we knew we were fishing but just couldnt decide which way to go. SW to the rigs for Tuna or SE in search of a sword. As we loaded up the boat Friday afternoon the decision was made to head SE and see what happens. We have zero swordfishing experience, but have read plenty of articles and post on the subject so we felt like we had a chance. Trubio007 and I hit the launch at boggy point just after 5pm Friday, got through the pass, pointed her SSE, set the AP and got comfortable for the ride. Seas were great 1 ft or less. After stopping a few times to check a new spots we found(Snapper, Snapper, Snapper)we got to the sword fishing grounds and started soaking baits about 10pm. Midnight rolls around and we get our first bit of action. Rigger clip pops, not much else, then very slowly the drag starts clicking, at this point we're getting excited. 1 short run and the line goes slack...dang, reel it in and the bait doesn't even look like it has been touched. Lines back out, 2:00am same thing, but this time the tentacle portion of the squid is gone. We make an adjustment, we lighten up the drag settings to almost zero. 4:00am same thing as before but this time he chews on it a bit and gets the hook and the fight is on, it felt like an eternity but 45 min later we have our first Sword in the boat. At sunrise we put out a trolling spread an headed north. Trolled for a bit with no action and decided to reelem up and head for the hill. Back at the launch by 10:30am. Great Trip, we learned alot and can't wait to do it again!!!!
