South Florida Swordfish Charters!
Fort Lauderdale and Miami have become some of the best spots to Swordfish in the world. Right off the South Florida coastline, just past the shelf you’ll find the swordfish grounds. We can target them at night, or even during the day. We offer a great offshore day charter & Swordfish combo trip, allowing us to target dolphin, wahoo, tuna, and swordfish, all in the same outting. Miami Fishing Charters offer great alternatives on many various species to target!
The run to the swordfish grounds is 15 to 30 miles out of Miami and Key West, Florida, in the GULFSTREAM. Lots of different types of bait can be productive when targeting swordfish which we often catch on the reef on the way out to the Gulfstream off of Florida. Squid, Mackeral, Speedos, Blue Runners, and Small Tuna all do the trick. We will run anywhere from 1-3 baits per rod, depending on conditions and the depth we are fishing.
Daytime Swordfishing is possible. We can catch them during the day. Best bet and our most productive trip is an "offshore trolling and night time swordfishing combo trip". We depart at 12:00pm and fish all afternoon for Dolphin, Wahoo, and Tuna, moving offshore towards the Swordfish grounds throughout the afternoon. By nightfall, we will be where we would like to start our drift, and work back up to the North, drifting with the Gulfstream.
Swordfishing Tackle - We use heavier tackle when targeting swords, as fish well into the 300 to 400 pound range can be caught on your Florida Swordfish Charter. The fish range from small 50 pound swordfish which we release up to 300 pound monster swordfish.
