You and Me Swordfishing in the Dark
Night fishing is an exciting experience – the thought of reeling in a big catch in almost total darkness sounds like a big challenge. Night fishing for swordfish is becoming more and more popular in Miami, known to be a world-class destination for swordfish and sailfish.
There are plenty of advantages that night fishing has over day angling. It is thought that the chances of catching bigger fish are higher at night. Especially if you don’t really want to venture too far from the shore. An obvious advantage is that the anglers can stay in the open air for as long as they want, without fear of getting sunburnt.
Another advantage is that there are fewer anglers fishing at night than at day time. That is less competition, more elbow room, and better chances of catching fish. At night, even the cleverest of fishes won’t easily identify the bait as connected to a hook and line because of the darkness. If allowed, low light can also be used to lure the fish to the boat.
