Targeting swordfish in the Southeast Region with Capt. Jimbo Thomas

I do most of my swordfishing during the daytime, although nighttime is very good at times. There’s a big ledge about 16 miles offshore of Miami where the bottom drops from 1,500 feet of water down to 2,000 feet of water rather quickly, and that’s where we do all our swordfishing. At night, you can put your lines out anywhere in that range because you’re not fishing the bottom, and most of the guys fishing at night are using either rigged squids, live blue runners, tinker mackerel or speedos.
