Ft. Lauderdale Fishing Report
We had a high pressure sitting over Fort Lauderdale FL for the past week, winds out of the east southeast, 8-12 mph, moderate chop and blue skies. Our charter today on the Happy Day Today Topshot Fishing was a group convention from AT&T from Pennsylvania. With large schools of Bonitos along with Black Fin Tunas mixed in migrating down the coast, and with the start of August also corresponding with the migration of Wahoo's passing Fort Lauderdale FL makes for good fishing action
We started off trolling off of the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale, which sits in 120 ft. of water and puts us 1.8 miles from the beach. We are very fortunate that the drop off comes very close to the shore in Fort Lauderdale which puts us 15 minutes from the dock to the fishing ground, compared to Miami which is 7 miles off shore and Palm Beach 11 miles off shore.
We put down two plainers, a #3 drome spoon on one plainer and the other had a black and purple sea witch in front of a double hook Bonito strip and four surface baits, two Ballyhoos and two Bonito strips. Trolling the drop off from 60 ft. of water to 200 ft. of water and trolling over different wrecks, produced a mixed bag of Bonitos from 8-15 lbs, Kings from 5-20 lbs, Tunas from 5-30 lbs. and Barracudas.
With 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.
