Capt. Ken, Don, Charley, and I went fishing yesterday for some swords with Kens HOOKERS. we left out of port everglades around 8 am and on our way we noticed a very large log floating in the water half submerged. we talked Kenny into stopping to catch a dolphin. we were only able to catch 1 small 6 pounder. we moved off shore made our drops. we got a few bites early but no fish. we moved around and finally in the late afternoon we were tight. we landed the fish, it was a 25 pound sickle pomfret. (NICE). we made another drift on the same line 00/48.5 and we were tight with a large fish. Don stayed on the rod and fought the fish for nearly 30 min to pull the hook. we set back up on the same line 00/48.5 and we were tight again on a smaller fish. this fish was a 50 inch sword. we again set back up on the same line and tight again immediately. we pulled on this fish for 15 min an I lost it. it was getting late and we wanted another fish, we figured we had time for one more drift. we decided to drop once again on the same line for a last shot. this time we got a small bite right at the beginning and nothing after that. we pulled the rigs up and we were tight with a fish. this time the rod feels funny again. the fish came right to the boat. we get a look and its a 27 lb oil fish (nice). i know people give these fish a bad name so i personally decided to give it a try. i took some of the fish to a friends sushi shop that night for him to prepare it. no kidding i ate about 1 pound of that fish raw and it was great. i found no issues at all the next day. so i don't know?????? it was good though and i will eat it again. any way the day was good, we caught a great catch in my eyes.
