Possibly the most exhilarating fishing charter we offer in Clearwater, catching swordfish is an experience that we really do not recommend missing. Swordfish are found in depths ranging from a few hundred feet to thousands of feet, and reeling these enormous fish through the Gulf of Mexico is a supreme challenge. The strongest anglers frequently ask us to help them with the electric reels onboard our Clearwater fishing boats.
Swordfish are truly fantastic animals. Weighing anywhere between 200lbs and 500lbs, these massive fish are easy to identify. Their long bill or "sword" is used highly effectively to slash and kill their prey (as opposed to spearing them which is commonly and mistakenly believed). Our Clearwater fishing charters catch swordfish with squid because it produces the best results – and we catch them throughout the day and night. This is the reason why we often suggest targeting swordfish to those anglers in Clearwater who wish to do some night fishing.
In Clearwater, swordfish charters are more expensive than hunting other fish species. This is because we find swordfish much farther offshore. It takes our fishing boats a great deal longer to reach their deep waters. The boats use more fuel and in turn have additional costs. Nevertheless, catching a swordfish in Clearwater makes this very worthwhile.
Our Clearwater fishing crews will clean, fillet and cut your swordfish into steaks when we get back to our dock. The white meat of the swordfish is absolutely delicious and we recommend grilling them for the best taste. Several classy seafood restaurants in Clearwater will be thrilled to prepare your catch for you – particularly when it is a swordfish and you have fought them intensely. Their expert chefs will ensure that your catch is the most delicious it can be, and their set prices are cheaper than ordering off their menus.
