Fishing Report in Fort Lauderdale aboard Happy Day Today

Fort Lauderdale Fishing on Happy Day Today with Capt. Zsak

With the weather in Boston almost breaking 100 degrees, Mr. Wayne Larqent, wife Anne, daughter Amy and son Sean came down to Fort Lauderdale FL for some cooler weather and a deep sea fishing charter on the Happy Day Today Topshot Fishing Charters. A slight breeze out of the east, 5-7 mph wind and temperatures in the mid 80’s was a perfect fishing day.

We got an early start this morning, 7 am - I mentioned to Anne that there have been some nice Wahoos being caught off of Fort Lauderdale, and I suggested for us to target them first. With that in agreement, we started off trolling off of the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale FL with two plainers, one with my favorite, a 3 ½ blue reflector drome spoon, and on the other was a pink and blue sea witch with a double hook Bonito stripe for bait (2 Bonito strips, one Ballyhoo and one Jap feather for surface baits).

It was like Anne had a magic wand – once I told Anne and Amy to call the fish – “here fishie, fishie” – the pink and blue plainer rod bent over, the rod tip bounced up and down and the line exited the reel at an extremely fast rate. These were all indicators that we had a Wahoo hooked up. Anne had a tug of war with the Wahoo until finally Anne won and brought the fish to the boat. While Mitch, our mate, gaffed the Wahoo, I told everyone to step back and to be careful of its razor sharp teeth. Mitch could barely lift the 53”, 43 lb Wahoo out of the water, while it thrashed back and forth. Wayne had a smile on his face, knowing that there was plenty of meat on that one fish for many meals.

Wayne, Amy and Sean took turns the rest of the fishing charter catching numerous Bonitos, King Fish and Barracudas. A good Happy Day Today was had for all in this fishing charter trip in Fort Lauderdale FL!!!!

It was time to start heading back from our deep sea fishing in Fort Lauderdale FL to the dock at Bahia Mar. This ends another successful and adventurous deep sea fishing charter on the Happy Day Today/Topshot Fishing with Captain Zsak.
