Meridian Swordfish Skirts

When it comes to outfits for sword fishing, precision and reliability are paramount. This is a fish where we’re making a 200km round trip and there’s no guarantee we’ll even get a bite. I therefore take gear and preparation for this style of fishing very seriously.   

Hooked Up’s Kosta recently sent me a few Meridian Sword Skirts to review. What I instantly liked about them is they are purpose-designed for placing over baits and targeting swordfish, whereas I have always used lure skirts which weren’t ideal. These skirts are tailored specifically to the needs of sword fishermen.

One of the most striking features of these skirts is their innovative design. Unlike anything else on the market, the wider head simplifies the rigging process, accommodating both J-hooks and circle hooks with ease. Whether you’re a seasoned sword angler or new to targeting these deep water beasts, you’ll appreciate the convenience and efficiency these skirts bring to the rigging process.

It’s not just about ease of rigging; it’s also about presentation. The streamlined shape of these skirts ensures your bait is presented in the most enticing manner possible. In the high-stakes world of sword fishing, where every bite counts, this can make all the difference between success and failure. With these skirts you can fish with confidence, knowing you’re maximising your chances of enticing that elusive swordfish.

Durability is another area where these skirts excel, as they’re built to withstand the rigours of the most demanding fishing conditions. Whether you’re pushing a belly flap into them or stitching wax thread, you’ll be impressed by their resilience. Unlike other skirts on the market that may tear or fray under pressure, these skirts hold up admirably, ensuring they’ll be a reliable companion on countless fishing expeditions to come.

And let’s not forget their visual appeal. While some anglers may be indifferent to the colour of their skirts, the Meridian Sword Skirts offer a range of options to suit every preference. Moreover, their glow-in-the-dark feature is truly remarkable, providing added visibility in the depths where swordfish lurk. In the dimly lit underwater world, a little extra glow can be the difference between a strike and a missed opportunity.

For those rigging baits on circle hooks, a valuable tip: consider securing a bead on the inside of the skirt with wax thread. This simple technique adds an extra layer of security, ensuring your skirt stays firmly in place during the heat of battle. When you’re locked in a fierce struggle with a powerful swordfish, the last thing you want to worry about is your gear failing you. With this precaution in place, you can focus on the task at hand with confidence and determination.

Ultimately, when you’re dropping bait down 400 to 500 metres, you need gear that you can rely on without hesitation. With the limited opportunities afforded by a day of sword fishing, there’s little room for doubt or uncertainty. That’s where the Meridian Sword Skirts truly shine. With their unmatched combination of innovation, durability and performance, they’re the ultimate choice for discerning sword fishermen who demand nothing less than the best.
