Scott Nichols: Two Billfish Royal Slams in One Year

On September 12, 2014, angler Scott Nichols caught, tagged, and released a 200 lb swordfish to cap off his incredible quest to become the first person to achieve two Billfish Royal Slams in a single year. More than 100 anglers have achieved the prestigious Billfish Royal Slam – which requires the successful capture of nine different species of billfish in a lifetime – but Nichols is the first to double up on the required species in a given year.
