Default Sword trip cut short last night

Haven't swordfished all season, just a lot of everything else. Trolled shortly before dark with one knockdown but no hookup. Put sword baits in shortly after dark and hooked up with a short fish quickly. Jumping jack too, at least a dozen jumps out of it and the first sword I've billed in mid-air (stupid, I know). Had another sword bite but no hook up. Two shark bites and then the sky woke up and I had to run. It got very nasty, very quickly and we lost most of our evening. But, 1-2 on swords and making it back alive ain't too shabby

Good to hear you made it back OK. Storms blow up quick in the summertime.

Chris Be care full out there Them swords can cut you bad. Lots of angler (not you Chris) don't know that a swordfish is really just that a sword with two edges. Thanks for the report. gene

Hey what did you mean when you said, "first sword you billed in mid air?"

Safety forced me into stupidity. The Sword actually hit the boat twice jumping and I asked the guys to go to the other side of the boat. The fish jumped a couple more times close and nearly hit me so when it came up on its tail in front of me I just reached out and grabbed its bill to get it under control. I normally wouldn't do something like this on a pissed off fish but I didn't want to risk it jumping at the boat again either
