Lauderdale on Happy Day Today with Capt. Zsak

Mr. & Mrs. Anders Granberg celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary aboard the charter boat, Happy Day Today, to do some deep sea fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. With good weather on their side, winds out of the east at 7-10 miles an hours, seas running 2-3 ft. and not a cloud in the skies in sunny Fort Lauderdale, FL.

After leaving the dock at Bahia Mar, fifteen minutes later lines were in the water at the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale FL at the drop off which is 120 ft., less than 2 miles from shore. We started trolling with two plainers down, one with a pink and blue double hook Bonito strip and the other with a blue and white double hook Bonito strip. For surface baits we went with two Ballyhoos and two Bonito strips with sea witches in front.

We trolled north to one of the 34 artificial wrecks located in Fort Lauderdale. Our wrecks range in depth from the shallowest, which is 60 ft. of water, out to the deepest, which is 420 ft. – all within 2 miles from shore; the wrecks are all different sizes, from tug boats to 550 ft. freighters. We trolled around catching Bonitos, as Mr. & Mrs. Granberg took turns taking pictures of each others catch. I could see some birds working the area, so I headed towards the birds and we caught some Black Fin Tunas. From there we tried our luck on one of the wrecks that sits in 230 ft. of water. We put a live bait sitting on the bottom looking for a Grouper. The rod bent over and Mrs. Granberg was the angler while her husband video’d the action as she pulled up a 55 lb. Amberjack. After pictures were taken, the Amberjack was returned to the ocean.

With time running out, we headed back to the dock at Bahia Mar 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316. Check out the picture with the lovebirds holding hands after 55 years of marriage.
