MEXICO: Isla Mujeres big swordfish landed
Angler Jessica Harvey, only 22, last week fought and landed the largest swordfish caught on a rod and reel by a female angler in the last 30 years and for sure one of the largest ever on record in Isla Mujeres in Mexican waters. The girls is the daughter of the world famous marine impresario Dr. Guy Harvey. Jessica hooked, fought and landed the 600-plus-pound swordfish. Jessica hooked the fish 15 miles offshore in 1.500 feet of water on conventional tackle and battled it for about three hours. This catch is a new record for Isla Mujeres.
