Rod & Gun Club Members’ Swordfish!

With sport fishing tournaments being cancelled, some Rod & Gun members are having their own tournaments between friends… Reaching out to friends and competing for the biggest fish of the day. A fun competition while sheltering here at the Reef.

Swordfishing has been popular the past few weeks for our Rod & Gun Members. The Florida Recreational Saltwater Fishing Regulations have a daily recreational bag limit of one per harvester per day, not to exceed a maximum of 4 per recreational (not for- hire) vessel or 15 per for-hire vessel. Swordfish are deep water fish and fished with an electric reel. Daytime Swordfishing is done by deep dropping a bait in excess of several thousand feet to the ocean floor while slowly trolling as efficiently as possible. 

Members, when you bring in your large fish, the weigh station is in the boat basin behind Marine Max. Rod and Gun Members please contact Ken Reda for weighing larger fish at 305-367-3969.

RGC members please text me your fishing photos to Wendy at 203-253-7790. Stay safe everyone!

Check out these catches!
