Fishing Fort Lauderdale on Happy Day Today with Capt. Zsak

William Hartmen from Kansas City chartered the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Winds were out of the east at 5-9 mph and seas running 3-4 ft., temperatures in the high 80’s.

Mr. Hartmen’s wife decided to do some shopping at the mall but William preferred to go out fishing with us instead. Fifteen minutes after leaving the dock lines were in 120 ft. of water at the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale, located 1.8 miles from shore. We went right into trolling with two plainers down, one with a double hooked Mullet strip in front of a purple and black sea witch; the other with a double hooked Bonito strip with a chartreuse sea witch in front. For surface baits we had two Ballyhoos and one Bonito strip.

With over 36 artificial wreck that sit off of Ft. Lauderdale ranging from 60 ft. out to 427 ft. of water gives you a wide range to target different species of fish that are located in the area of the wrecks. As I trolled from one wreck to the other, William sat back relaxed enjoying his drink. But that did not last long. Our first strike came on one of the plainer rods which turned out to be a Kingfish followed by two other short Kingfish, which we released. From there we trolled to some of the deeper wrecks, and William caught three Bonitos and eight Tunas and two short Mahi Mahi’s, which were released. William remarked that he hoped his wife was enjoying herself shopping as much as he was fishing in Fort Lauderdale

With plenty of good eating fish for dinner tonight, it was time to head back. William retired into the a/c salon for a relaxing ride back to the dock at Bahia Mar 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316.
