World's largest sword to date this year – caught in South Florida

We’ve got the largest sword on rod and reel caught this year – a 693-pounder caught in Ft. Lauderdale yesterday.  One-hour fight on this fish – which lost about 50 pounds to fit into the boat.  This fish was yet another daytime broadbill – a growing trend we’re seeing.

More to come on angler and captain – but great catch!
