Islamorada Swordfish Tournament

Capt.. Randy Towe let water temperature be his guide. A steamy 87-degree pocket turned out to be the hot spot as his team beat 22 others to win the second annual Islamorada Swordfish Tournament on Friday and Saturday.

In about 2,000 feet of water, his angling team caught seven swordfish over the two-night tournament for 726.2 points. Two of those game fish were more than 60 inches, jaw to fork, so they could be weighed in. The heavier tipped the scales at 122 pounds, the other 105.
