Fishing Fort Lauderdale on Happy Day Today with Capt. Zsak
Scott and Mimi Andero along with their friends, Sue and Gary Moore, from Connecticut chartered the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea big game sport fishing aboard the Happy Day Today in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Winds were out of the north, northwest at 7 mph with blue skies and temperatures in the low 80’s, a typical Chamber of Commerce day.
Fifteen minutes after leaving the dock, lines were in 120 ft. of water, 1.8 miles from shore at the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale. We started off trolling with two #8 plainers down, one with a 3 ½ blue reflector drone spoon and the other with a double hooked Ballyhoo with a seawitch in front. For surface baits we had two Bonito strips and two Ballyhoos.
I started trolling towards one of our 34 artificial wrecks located in Fort Lauderdale with depths of water ranging from 60 ft out to 420 ft. The first two wrecks did not produce any fish. Going over the third wreck, the plainer rod bent over as Sue was our angler and reeled in a Kingfish. From there I could see some birds working to the east so I headed in their direction and found some Black Fin Tunas. The anglers took turns and brought in five Black Fin Tunas. We continued to troll the area when one of the plainer rods went off, rod tip bouncing, line exiting the reel at a fast speed, indicating that a Wahoo was at the end of the line. Scott jumped into the fighting chair to do battle; twenty minutes later there was the fastest fish in the ocean which has been clocked at 64 mph – a Wahoo in the 30 lb. class. Mark, our mate, started to wire in the fish, 10 ft. from the boat the Wahoo shook his head frantically from side to side, while pictures were taken, and threw the hook. A good fight but no cigar!!! From there we kept trolling and wound up with a total of six Kingfish, five Black Fin Tunas and three Bonitos.
With plenty of good edible fish to take home, the anglers retired into the a/c salon for a relaxing ride back to the dock at Bahia Mar 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316.
