Default Swords, mako and tunas O my!!!

This week has been a pretty awesome week of fishing on the Fishyz Nitemare. Started out Sunday with the TBH swordfish auction trip where we caught 4 swords in one day.

Tuesday we headed off for a couple days and caught yellowfin, blackfins and 1/2 a wahoo.

Then Friday the 13th we were able to get out again and get 2 swords and a mako. My son was able to get his 2nd swordfish and his biggest so far. The mako ate part of one of the swords and it was still swimming around the boat after we landed the sword and so we threw a bait at the mako and caught him too. Hahaha what a week!!!

Did you cut that Mako open and tape the missing tail from the sword back on?
