Hydroglow Winter Swordfest Swordfishing Tournament

Posted on August 24th, 2013 by Mike

The HydroGlow Winter Swordfest Tournament originally scheduled for November 5, 2005 was postponed due to Hurricane Wilma to Saturday, December 10, 2005. The winds were howling all week leading up to the tournament but the weather report said the conditions would die down and lucky for us they did! Approximately 230 anglers fished on 49 boats in what would be one of the best nights in our tournament history. Fishing was red hot all night long. Most fishing teams were hooked up to a fish within the first hour of lines in and they reported that swords were biting all night long. The tournament committee boat documented 59 releases and 54 boated fish with 12 of them brought to the scales.

The final results are as follows:

1st Place
