Pictured here is the Steve Carlton crew's charter with a beautiful swordfish we caught Wednesday aboard the “Lisa B" out of Hillsboro inlet. This was the first broadbill for three of the charter members. We made three drops, had three bites and caught two swordfish. We released a smaller fish as we had plenty of groceries after the first fish.
We were out again yesterday, and the conditions completely changed. You could feel the approaching front and the swordfish bite shut down just that quick. We fished for six hours and had no bites. We will see the swordfishing improve again when the weather stabilizes here in a few days.
Farther inshore the wahoo and tuna bite is still consistent with a few mahi mixed in. Saturday looks to be a bit rough as of now so if you’re going to venture out this weekend make sure to look at the marine forecast. We also have a batch of green water that’s been lingering around the Hillsboro inlet and Boca Inlet area. If you’re going to spend some time fishing this week, you may want to run north or south a few miles to find some cleaner water.
