Fishing Fort Lauderdale on Happy Day Today with Capt. Zsak

Darrell Seybold along with his sons, 10 year old Elijah and older brother Nathaniel, from Texas chartered the Happy Day Today along with the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. His wife dropped them off at the dock and planned an excursion for herself to the shopping mall with credit card in her hand.

Young Elijah was very enthusiastic about his fishing trip and Dad told me that was all he spoke about. We had winds out of the east at 5 mph, seas running 2-3 ft, temperature in the mid 80’s, and fifteen minutes after leaving the dock fishing lines were in the water. I told Elijah on the way out, the tradition for fishing in Fort Lauderdale is that you must call the fish; he asked me how and I told him the secret – you call out, “here fishy, fishy”.

With lines in the water, he kept repeating, “here fishy, fishy”, and low and behold it worked as he reeled in his first Kingfish. I worked the drop off, which is located in 120 ft. of water, less than 2 miles off of Fort Lauderdale, FL, while the two boys alternated bringing in the fish and Dad worked the camera taking pictures of the boys in action. As I made one of my swings heading off of 70 ft. of water, a black shadow appeared – !!!Sailfish!!!! - on the long left rigger chasing down a swimming Ballyhoo. Jackson, our mate, dropped the bait back to the Sailfish and hooked up. Immediately, the Sailfish came out of the water showing us his spectacular power and brilliant neon colors for a short time before throwing the hook. Elijah remarked it was so close to shore to which I responded that there are no fences out here, the predators can go swimming anywhere they want.

With a total of 8 Kingfish, 3 Bonitos, and 3 Barracudas the boys along with their father retired to the a/c salon for the ride back to the dock at Bahia Mar 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316.
