Fishing Report: Fishing in Ft.Lauderdale aboard the charter boat "Happy Day Today".
The temperature in South Florida, Ft. Lauderdale may be rising but our prevailing winds out of the southeast cools temperatures down to make deep sea fishing pleasant either in the morning or afternoon. If you are too hot, you can always sit inside our air conditioned salon. Our ft lauderdale fishing is and always had new equipment and cold salon which is always nice on these hot days when we are deep sea fishing fort lauderdale fl.
This morning we have guests from Protective Insurance, which had a convention here in Ft. Lauderdale South Florida and decided to charter the Happy Day Today to do some deep sea fishing. People from all over the country came down to enjoy our beautiful weather and do some deep sea charter fishing here in Ft. Lauderdale South Florida.
We started off by doing some trolling. After fishing for and catching King Fish, Bonitas and Tunas, I decided to do some wreck fishing. We have 34 artificial local wrecks here in Ft. Lauderdale South Florida dating back to 1974 – these wrecks range from 40 ft. of water, also accommodating divers, to 550 ft of water, and are homes for many different species of fish. This time of the year, the majority of our wrecks hold a variety of fish: Amberjacks, Snappers, Groupers, Cobias and Sharks. These types of fish are mostly bottom dwellers.
I positioned myself above one of our artificial wrecks in Ft. Lauderdale in 240 ft. of water, using a live Goggle Eye fish for bait with a circle hook and two lbs. of lead to fight the current that was traveling at 3 ½ knots to the north. When you hit the bottom with your lead, it is best to take six turns on the real to raise the bait off of the bottom, eliminating the possibility of getting hooked to the wreck. With the live bait down, our first angler was Carrie Profaizer from St. Louis. All of a sudden, the rod bents over and Carrie is holding on to the rod with both hands. The fish took out 25 lbs. of drag from the spider line – we knew we had a good size fish hooked. Twenty minutes later, Mitch, our mate, grabbed the leader and there appeared a 45 lb. Amberjack – pictures were taken and the fish was released. When you release a fish, the bladder is filled with air so you squeeze the abdominal area of the fish to remove the air caught in his stomach making it easier for the fish to swim back down to the wreck. The second angler was Dan Barrie from Chicago who caught another Amberjack fish approximately the same weight.
It was time to start heading back from our deep sea salt water fishing charter to the dock at Bahia Mar, fishing fort lauderdale fl is a Sout Florida marina. This ends another successful and adventurous deep sea fishing excursion on the Happy Day Today with Captain Zsak.
