Fort Lauderdale on Happy Day Today with Capt. Zsak

Anthony Morriello from Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey and Nick Macrina from Toms River, New Jersey chartered the Happy Day Today along with the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale FL. Anthony and Nick have been friends since childhood and lived the horror of Hurricane Sandy with its devastating force. They came down to Fort Lauderdale to enjoy its sights and fishing.

After purchasing a dozen live Goggle Eyes from T&T, I set out knowing that we had a two to three knot current heading to the north, so I headed south of Fort Lauderdale to a color change that I found in 200 ft. of water. We put out two kites, two live Goggle Eyes from each kite and one Shark bait down on the bottom. Nick was our first angler, as a Sailfish appeared on our left short kite, frantically chasing the Goggle Eye. After eating the bait, the Sailfish immediately came out of the water as he kept greyhounding away from the boat. Even at a distance, he looked very large, showing his spectacular strength and speed. We had to bring in the rest of our fishing lines and terminal tackle to chase the Sailfish down. Twenty minutes later, Nick brought the Sailfish to the side of the boat, as Jackson, our mate, brought him into the boat for picture taking. The Sailfish measured 91 inches and 60 lbs estimated weight.

We headed south again on the same color change to set up the kites once again. As Nick rested from his exhausting battle with the Sailfish, it was Anthony’s turn. With the sun gleaming down on the bait, I could not, at first, identify the predator chasing the bait, but shortly thereafter a Sailfish jumped out of the water while tail-walking towards the boat frantically throwing water from side to side. Anthony brought the Sailfish to the side of the boat, Jackson brought it into the boat, pictures were taken and the Sailfish was released.

With two Sailfish flags flying and mission accomplished, it was time to head back to the dock at Bahia Mar 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316.
