Fishing Fort Lauderdale on Happy Day Today with Capt. Zsak
Steve Nash and son Chris along with friend Andy Hanson and son from Denver here on vacation enjoying our weather, decided to do some big game deep sea sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL with the Topshotfishing team. Winds were out of the northeast at 17 mph, seas running 4-6 ft., blue skies, and temperature in the mid 70’s.
We stopped to purchase a dozen live Goggle Eyes from T&T Bait which we planned on using later for Sailfishing. Fifteen minutes after leaving the dock, lines were in 120 ft. of water at the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale, 1.8 miles from shore. From there we started trolling and caught a total of 4 Kingfish.
I noticed a rip forming in 185 ft. of water – an inviting place to fly the kite. We put out two kites, with two live Goggle Eyes from each kite. Our first bite was a Sailfish that got wrapped up on the leader and threw the hook. We reset the kite and a dorsal fin belonging to a Sailfish grabbed the bait from the right short kite. Steve was our angler and he brought the Sailfish to the side of the boat for pictures and then Dave our mate released the sailfish. We reset again on the same rip and the black shadow appeared on the left short. With dorsal fin and bill out of the water, the Sailfish frantically chased the live Goggle Eye. Sailfish hooked up. Immediately he came out of the water and pulled the hook.
After a successful day of fighting Sailfish, the anglers retired in the a/c salon for the ride back to the dock at Bahia Mar 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316.
