Broadbill Swordfish Bait Rigging
In daytime fishing for broadbill swordfish, the bait is giant. The ones you pick, the freshness and the quality are a big deal. During feeding patterns, the average guy is going to go to be able to go out and catch fish. When the fish aren't feeding heavily, the bite slows down or the moons not right or the tides different and some of those elements that make them not bite or be in a feeding mode set in, that is when a really fresh bait, a well rigged bait makes all the difference in catching fish.
This In The Spread Rigging Swordfish Baits video featuring RJ Boyle is a 3 hour high intensity learning tool for broadbill swordfish anglers. The baits you are rigging need every bit of your effort. The time and expense involved in this kind of fishing are not small. Get it right. Think about it, the last thing between you and that swordfish is your bait, so it needs to be bullet proof.
