Method Of Swordfish Fishing

Daytime Swordfishing

Daytime Swordfishing has quickly grown to become the preferred way to catch Swordfish off the Florida coast for many anglers, especially here in Stuart, FL. Some anglers have been innovative in perfecting their own Swordfish tactics and have met with great success. Not all Swordfish Fishing Charters offer daytime swordfishing though. Given the swordfish is a nocturnal fish.

Night Time Swordfishing

Another preferred method for fishing for Swordfish is fishing for them at night time. Being a nocturnal feeder, swordfish rise from the deepest depths during the night and make their way towards the surface to feed. Seasoned anglers deploy 4-5 baits (squid, ladyfish, Bonito, strips) at depths ranging from 75-300 ft below the surface. Lights are put on the line close to the bait to help attract other bait to your bait with a hook.

As the light draws the bait in the live bait draws the Swordfish in. When the Swordfish scares all the live bait away your bait is left and usually inhaled.  A balloon with a light stick on top of it acts as our bobber and is what we monitor throughout the night to see if we get a bite.
