Fishing report for the Happy Day Today

Fort Lauderdale Fishing on Happy Day Today with Capt. Zsak

Winds out of the east northeast, at a rate of 8-12 mph, with a height of 2-3 ft. seas – blue and sunny skies in the forecast for Fort Lauderdale FL makes for a pleasant day for charter fishing aboard the Happy Day Today Topshot Fishing.

Robert Weeks and friends, Michael and Jim, from Rhode Island came down to Fort Lauderdale FL to enjoy the weather and to do some deep sea fishing. As we left the dock at Bahia Mar in Fort Lauderdale FL – we have been in business at this same dock since 1971, making us one of the oldest deep sea charter fishing businesses in South Florida – we headed out to the sea buoy. As we got to the sea buoy, I could see plenty of bait fish (small Bonitos) on the surface. We put out two bug lines which consisted of four feathers on each to catch the small Bonitos (Bullets). We caught half a dozen of the live bait to use later in our fishing charter.

We trolled around off of Fort Lauderdale FL, and the three anglers took turns catching King Fish, Black Fin Tunas, Bonitos and a couple of Barracudas. Now it was time to use our live bait fish, so I headed out to one of Fort Lauderdale FL’s artificial wrecks that sit in 245 ft. of water, which is a tug boat that was sunk in 1989. These artificial wrecks are home for numerous bait fish and in turn it is a perfect supermarket for the predators to feed on. Mitch, our mate, rigged up one of our live Bonitos, I positioned myself over the wreck and Mitch lowered the bait down to the bottom. Robert was our first angler and within minutes the rod bent over to reel in a 40 lb Amberjack for picture taking of the fish and then to be released. Michael was up and he caught a 45 lb. Amberjack. Next up was Jim - with two missed hits, the third was our lucky one – as Jim reeled in an 18 lb. Mutton Snapper.

With three happy anglers and a good catch of fish on the charter boat Happy Day Today Topshot Fishing, 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.
