When I saw this posted this week it made me think about all the swordfish we've caught over the last 25 years. The long battles, the lost fish and the great catches. This catch above is overwhelmingly special. This giant sword fish weighing 591 pounds was caught on 20 pound test line.

It's crazy to think that you can land a beast of a fish like this on line that you would usually use on a spinning rod. Congratulations to the crew captain and angler in New Zealand for this world record catch. They grow them large in NZ as 7 fish over 500lbs were caught this week. I may have to make a trip!
