Fishing Fort Lauderdale on Happy Day Today with Capt. Zsak
Wahoo Dan.jpg

A family from Maryland, Daniel Hearn, father Stan, mother Carole and friend Bernell, chartered the Happy Day Today along with the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The whole family are avid anglers, and were enthused about on an 8 fishing hour charter here in Fort Lauderdale FL.

Winds were out of the east northeast at 8 mph, seas running 3-4 ft., temperature was in the mid 80’s. We left the dock at 7:30 am and fifteen minutes later lines were in the water as we approached the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale in 120 ft. of water. We put two plainers down, one with a double hook Bonito strip with a green and white sea witch and the other with a black and purple sea witch. For surface baits we had four Ballyhoos and a Ballyhoo daisy chain teaser. With the fish gods on the angler’s side, we started off with a bang, catching one Kingfish after another after another, winding up with eight Kingfish, which we kept and releasing 18 Kingfish. From there I could see some birds working the area off shore, so we trolled towards the birds. As I got close I could see a school of Mullets migrating to the south, which is a good indication that the predators will not be too far behind. We wound up catching four Tunas and two Bonitos in this area.

I kept working the area and one of the plainer rods bent over with the line exiting at an extremely fast rate and the rod tip bouncing up and down, which is a strong indication we had a Wahoo on the line. Stan reeled in the fastest fish in the ocean, a Wahoo, which are recorded at 64 mph. Jackson, our mate, leaned over the side to gaff the vertical stripe, jaw snapping Wahoo, weighing 24 lbs. We kept working the area – again the tell tale sign of a Wahoo appeared as Daniel reeled in another Wahoo weighing 28 lbs.

From there we went wreck fishing and we brought it one Amberjack and eight Snappers.

With a smile on the angler’s faces and the fish box full of fish to be brought back to Maryland, everyone retired to the a/c salon for the ride back to the dock at Bahia Mar 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316.
