First Swordfish of the season in Cabo

Date Published:

First Swordfish of the Season caught aboard the Pisces Ruthless.


Pisces Sportfishing does it again! Cabo’s First Swordfish of the Season caught aboard the Pisces Ruthless.


A couple of days ago Captain Beto Lira of the Ruthless and deckhand Martin Gonzalez (usually aboard the Tracy Ann), took out a group of anglers from California. This group of fishermen was participating in the charity event Stars and Stripes Tournament. In its 20th year, the event benefits youth charities, and is a combination of a "fishing, golf, and music festival." The hugely popular event has raised and donated more than $20 million to worthy youth charities since 1996.

The team was eager to compete, and chose to head quite far out to a spot were Captain Beto knew the fish had been biting, 42 miles away from shore to be exact. Once in the area, they saw something moving slowly on the surface of the water. They realized that this was one of the most prized catches for a big game angler, a swordfish! Casting their prepared live bait at the fish, it smacked it right on the bill, practically landing in its mouth. Startled, the swordfish grabbed the bait, giving them a solid hook up and a tremendous fight that lasted a full two hours and twenty minutes.

Back on shore the fish was weighed on our certified scale, showing it to be a nice 190 lb.As swordfish is such a prized catch (its meat being excellent to eat), the boys ended up sharing it among some very happy members of the local community. Making sure none of it went to waste.
