Switch Up Your Daytime Swordfish Baits To Get More Bites!
We are all creatures of habit and over the years have formed routines and have certain things we like no matter the situation. While having your "go to" baits are good it is important to experiment and try new things. Having a diversified bait box is especially important while sword fishing.
"Had we continued drifting the squid we might not have had a bite all day"
Whether you are day timing or drifting for swords at night, having different options can be the difference between success or getting skunked. We have always liked using a 150-250 gram rigged squid for sword fishing but swords also eat a lot of other things. Dolphin bellies, Bonita bellies and tinker mackerel are also all very good baits.
Recently we decided to rig up a couple amberjack bellies to try. It's solid white color, we felt, would reflect light better from our LP Diamond lights and it can be cut and rigged to swim very well.
We started the morning drifting a rigged squid up and down the lump with no bites. After 3 drifts in the same area we decided to pull out the jack belly! On the very first drop on the same lump we hooked a sword within minutes of being down. On the second drop, using the same bait, we immediately caught a nice Pomfret.
Had we continued drifting the squid we might not have had a bite all day, but being diversified and trying something new paid off in a big way. Don't be afraid to try new things. You just might find something that works even better than anything you had tried before.
