Let’s Go Swordfishing!

Let’s Go Swordfishing!


When you come to a fork in the river, take it.

A word of advice. If you ever get invited to go on a fishing trip of a lifetime time, do what you can to make it happen. I recently was invited to float the infamous Smith River in Montana. It was a squeeze for me to make it, but I knew I could not pass up this opportunity. To afford the flights I went to Craigslist to see what I could get rid of. After a few weeks, and a less crowded closest, I had sold enough to afford the flights. The rest would go down in history.

Broken Record - Capt. Dean Panos

Sorry for the long delay between reports, but I have actually fished every single day since my last report and finally got a day off today due to a cancellation. It sounds like a broken record this year, but the fishing has really been up and down. We will have one week were the fishing is good with quite a few sailfish, some big mahis and kings followed by some days of slow fishing. That is mostly due to the conditions such as current, water clarity and wind.

Slowly Switching Gears - Captain Dean Panos



For the past few months, the main emphasis has been on daytime swordfishing, and in the past two weeks we have done a few of those trips. As we are now in November and we are starting to approach winter, sailfish season is upon us and we are starting to do more and more sailfish trips.
