North Carolina boats a 315lbs Swordfish with Capt. Vinnie LaSorsa

Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PressExposure) February 10, 2007 -- Paul and his family are no strangers to Sport fishing, Paul's family owns a vacation home in the Outer banks of North Carolina where they keep there own a Sport fishing boat. Paul says "We fish a good amount during the summer and fall months off the Outer banks, we catch some Tunas occasionally a White marlin but we have never caught a Swordfish. Swordfish have always been a sport fish my sons and I have wanted to catch."

Paul and his family were planning a vacation to South Florida, through reading fishing magazine and TV shows they've heard about the good consistent Swordfish Fishery off of South Florida. Paul made arrangements with Capt. Vinnie LaSorsa, who owns Goodfellas Sport fishing Charters, to head offshore in the hopes of the family having there first Swordfish encounters. Paul says "We did some research and chose Capt. Vinnie based on his reputation for catching many people there first Swordfish."

Well Paul and his two sons made the right choice. During their Sword fishing excursions with Capt. Vinnie, they all caught there first Swordfish. Paul's youngest son Teddy caught the first Swordfish around 6:15pm, about a 65lbs Swordfish, which they released. Then at 7:10pm one of the deeper lines got hit and Paul's oldest son Chad fought that fish for about 45 minutes when we boated the fish in measured out to 66 inches which is about 150lbs. After we got the lines all set up again we had another hit but the hook pulled shortly after the strike. Around 9:30, after a short lull from the action we had a monster hit, Paul fought this fish for an hour and 10 minutes. When we boated the fish in measured out to 83 inches. We brought that fish back to the marina scales to get an accurate weight. The Sword Fish weighed out to 315lbs. Paul says" It was a great catch and even more memorable night. We can't wait to do it again."
