Fishing Fort Lauderdale on Happy Day Today with Capt. Zsak
Al Buccieri with wife, Pam, son, Nick and daughter, Veronica from Brandon, Florida 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 east at 12 mph, blue skies, seas running 3-4 ft., blue indigo water on the second reef with a 1.4 knot current going to the north.
Al wanted to catch a “large” fish, so I headed off to the Shark grounds south of Fort Lauderdale FL sitting in 350 ft. of water. We put three Shark baits out, one on the surface, one midrange and one on the bottom, a kite with two live Goggle Eyes and a butterflyed Blue fish for a teaser hanging from the outrigger. As we sat there waiting for the Sharks arrival, I could see the dorsal of a Shark making circles trying to pick up the scent of the teaser. This fish needs a lot more practice in following the scent as he swam off in the wrong direction. Thirty-five minutes later another Hammerhead Shark appeared; this one swimming frantically from right to left as he honed in exactly on the teaser bait. Five feet from the boat, an estimated 275-300 lb. Hammerhead Shark was trying to feed on the Blue fish, which I raised out of the water. Our mate, Jackson, reeled in our surface bait and presented it within 2 ft from the Shark, but he was not interested. At that point, I knew we had to make a change. Immediately, I told Jackson to get a piece of Blue fish, put it on another rod and throw it into the water and at the same time I threw the teaser back into the water. This time we were hooked up to the Shark, as the anglers witnessed this amazing sight only 5 feet from the boat. The battle was on as Al jumped into the fighting chair, while the family cheered him on. Fifty-five minutes later, the 8 ˝ ft. Shark was brought to the boat, pictures taken and released un-harmed to do battle again.
With a happy angler accomplishing his quest, it was time to head back to the dock at Bahia Mar 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale Fl. 33316.
