Mr. Mark Weiss from Manhattan got a reprieve from the weather in New York and came down to Fort Lauderdale FL with his children to enjoy our 80 degree temperature, and do some deep sea fishing on the Happy Day Today with the Topshotfishing team.
Winds out of the east at a steady 15 mph, seas 3-5 ft. – the same weather pattern holding for the past three weeks. With winds blowing over the Gulfstream pushing the indigo waters all the way in, past the drop off, which sits in120 ft. of water, 1.8 miles from shore at the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale FL. His daughter, Rachel, 9 years old, and son, Weiss Jr., 6 years old, were excited about going fishing out into the ocean. An outgoing tide and a head-on wind made for a roller coaster ride going out of the inlet, to the delight of the children.
For surface baits we had three Bonito strips, two with sea witches in front and one with a blue and white ˝ ounce jap feather and two Ballyhoos. For our deep line, we had a #8 plainer and a 3 ˝ blue reflector drone spoon. For a teaser we had a Ballyhoo dredge. It did not take long before our first bite came, a 7 lb King fish on the plainer, followed by a couple of Bonitos on the surface baits and some good size Mahi Mahi’s, with Rachel catching the biggest Mahi Mahi.
The children were thrilled with their catches on the Happy Day Today and Mr. Weiss was happy to have caught tonight’s dinner - it was time to start heading back. This ends another successful and adventurous deep sea fishing charter on the Happy Day Today with the Topshotfishing team and Captain Zsak - 954-439-8106 – www.topshotfishing.com
