Fishing Fort Lauderdale on Happy Day Today with Capt. Zsak
Tony and Shawnseen Swoboda from Missouri had reservations on the Royal Caribbean; the day before their departure on the cruise they chartered the Happy Day
Today along with the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale FL.
We had winds out of the north northeast at 15 mph, seas running 5-8 ft. and blue waters pushed into the first reef. Tony said he would like to catch a Sailfish, so we went right into it.
Fifteen minutes after leaving the dock, two kites were flying with two Goggle Eyes from each kite at the sea buoy in 120 ft. of water off of Fort Lauderdale FL. It did not take too long before the black shadow appeared, with bill and dorsal out of the water, frantically chasing the live Goggle Eye until it was captured. Immediately, the Sailfish came out of the water, as the sun reflected on his spectacular neon colors while putting on a fantastic aerobatic show. Five minutes into the battle, the Sailfish dislodged the hook and was free.
We set up again in the same location, and this time an explosion took place on the right short as we hooked up with a large Mahi Mahi, that exited the water. At the same time, another Mahi Mahi hooked up on the left short – double hitter. A his and hers fight was on with one line crisscrossing over the other repeatedly. Shawnseen was the angler on the larger Mahi Mahi weighing 26 lbs, which Ian, our mate, gaffed and put in the boat followed by Tony’s Mahi Mahi. We set up again – this time the black shadow appeared on the right long – Sailfish!!!! – as we were hooked up once more. After a 25 minute battle, Tony seduced the Sailfish and brought it to the side of the boat for picture taking and was released to fight again. Tony remarked – “I got my Sailfish – let’s go in.”
The happy couple retired in the A/C salon for the trip back to the dock at Bahia Mar 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale Fl. 33316.
