Swordfish also known as the Gladiators of the sea, are one of the most spectacular fish in the ocean. They are highly migratory and are therefore are found all over the world, they grow fast and are therefore constantly eating, they can dive more than 2000 feet and can therefore handle temperature changes of over 40 degrees in the same day.
Cool facts you might say. What is even more spectacular about these fish, is what it takes to catch them. Swordfish are one most challenging and rewarding fish to catch. Swordfish require highly specialized gear to land and are Lb for Lb one of the hardest fighting fish (1 hr per 100Lbs is a good rule of thumb). Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, swordfish have soft lips which means fighting a monster sword is a give and take game.
We put together this article as part of a series of articles to try and demystify the gladiator of the ocean.
