Default Catch My Drift lands 400# swordfish


Had a cool trip on the Catch MY Drift the other night on the Friday Swordfish trip. We had 13 anglers on the boat, Capt. Adam at the helm and Josh on the deck. We were putting out our 7th line when we got the bite. The fish ate a big blue runner on the 200' bait. Brutal fight, we fought the fish for over 4 hours. Fish was foul hooked in the dorsal fin. After a few runs that nearly spooled us, the fish must have gotten wrapped in the tail because he finally came up backwards. Fish was 12 foot overall, 98" short length. I estimate him at around 400 pounds. Total group effort to catch this one, I think everyone fought him for a while.
