    Default My first sword - finally

    After years of trying (although not that hard admittedly) I popped my sword cherry Friday evening in the Cayman Swordfish Tournament. Daydropping, second drop - 6.00pm, 2200' of water on the bottom with a barracuda strip. Just over an hour to get in - 122.2 lbs. Heaviest fish first day($2500) and Third overall($2500). Not a bad weekend seeing as we only went two miles from shore both days! Check out the stomach contents...a bunch of what looked like red prawns. Meat was just starting to go pumpkin...

    Awesome. Congratulations on your first and being in the money for the tournament. I guess just like Flamingos, it is the red shrimp/prawns in their diet that make the Pumpkins.
