Rhode Island Angler Shatters State Swordfish Record

By Chad Love

Rhode Island may be the smallest state, but there's nothing diminutive about the 434 lb. broadbill swordfish that recently shattered the state record by over one-hundred pounds.

From this story on projo.com:

Rhode Island angler Louis DeFusco set a state record Friday when he landed a 434-pound broadbill swordfish at Snug Harbor Marina. He caught the fish aboard the vessel Hot Reels, out of Galilee, Thursday night, said Elisa Jackman, manager of the marina in South Kingstown. The fish was caught at Hydrographer Canyon, about 90 miles south of Nantucket, Jackman said. The fish was 120 pounds heavier than the previous state record swordfish, caught by Web Goodwin in 1964 when swordfish were more abundant.
