We had an exceptional swordfishing charter this week…. as soon as the bait hit the bottom, the fish hit. We fought the fish for about 45 minutes before we got him to the surface. He took some small runs during the course of the fight, but no fast/hard runs as you would expect from a fish this size. As soon as the fish came within sight of the boat, the fish went ballistic. He thrashed and shook his head, made a crazy fast run and jumped out of the water.
