Default Aquaviva white, sail, sword 7/29

Decided to fish Sunday afternoon and do a little swordfishing Sun night. Cleared the pass around 10:30AM. Headed straight for the spur. While in route found a nice line just north of the edge in between elbow and nipple. Put the lines in and work the line....nothing. Continue to troll to the Spur. Approximately 14 miles northwest of the spur we hook a nice sail. Craig's son is on the take and lands his first sailfish. We're stoked. Keep heading south. Approximately 11 miles northwest of the spur we hook a white. Again Craig's son saddles up and makes short work the white. Can't believe it. Now the pressure is on to catch a blue. Doesn't happen. Get to spur with 2 hours of sunlight to spare. Work the area trying desperately to catch a blue. Darkness seals our fate. Set up on the north wall for swords. After 20 minutes we have our first hook up. Ends up to be a 25lb escolar. Put the lines back out. 15 minutes later a shark....bummer. Again lines out. 30 minutes pass and I hear the balloon on the shallow rod pop. Think its a shark and both Craig and I try to convince one another to take the rod. I end up with the rod and little did I know I would be entrenched in an hour battle. Get the fish up and it's a nice sword. After that we decide to head in as the sword barely fit in our bag and we had ice situation. Awesome day on Aquaviva.
