Happy Day Today Sports Fishing Off Shore Fort Lauderdale Topshotfishing
Half day morning fishing charter aboard the “Happy Day Today” and the Top Shot Fishing team based out of Fort Lauderdale, Fl.  We had nice conditions with clear skies and light easterly winds, blowing 10 to 12 mph.  As we are now in the summer, the temperature is heating up, and by 9 in the morning, it’s already getting hot.  Fortunately, when we are fishing offshore Fort Lauderdale, the easterly winds help cool us off.   I started the morning catching live Ballyhoos by an anchorage where we can tie up to a mooring ball.  With a chum bag and a Snapper line on the bottom, we waited for the Ballyhoos to show up, and they usually do within 15 minutes.  The deep line was active catching Yellow Tail Snappers, which was keeping us busy while waiting for the Ballyhoos to show up.  We caught 4 Yellow Tail Snappers and on the 5th one, as we were bringing the fish up, a Shark came and ate the Snapper

Anthony and Kenny from the Cincinnati area chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team for a private deep-sea charter boat sport fishing trip in Fort Lauderdale, FL based out of Bahia Mar.  As they boarded the boat, they were greeted by Captain Zsak from the Top Shot Sportfishing Charter Boat Team. Fifteen to twenty minutes after leaving the dock, lines were in 110 ft. of water at the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale, 2 miles from shore.  If you venture off another mile, you would find yourself in 500 ft. of water, which we exclusively have here in Fort Lauderdale, due to Fort Lauderdale’s extreme drop off.  The further north you go, the further the drop off swings offshore.   I headed offshore south of Fort Lauderdale where there had been some decent fishing action the previous day.  We got about 4 miles to the southeast of Fort Lauderdale and started the day fishing with 4 surface lines, which included three Ba
Happy Day Today Offshore Fishing with the Topshot Fishing Team
This is our first fishing trip back since the end of March and the shut down due to Covid-19.   The reopening of boating ramps and marinas, which has allowed us to go fishing, was badly needed after being indoors for 4 weeks.  The fresh air and open ocean are exactly what was needed.   Our trip was a successful one, before we even left the dock, and catching fish was a huge bonus.  Harrison and Stephanie Joss, a family from Pompano Beach, Florida chartered a half day fishing trip out of Fort Lauderdale with the Top Shot Sportfishing team for a private deep-sea charter boat sport fishing trip aboard the Happy Day Today.   The family picked a day fishing in Fort Lauderdale that couldn’t have been better, with clear skies and calm seas.     We started out the day trolling in 150 ft. of water with two deep planners – these deep planners get the baits down to 50 feet and will r

A group from North Carolina chartered an all-day fishing trip with the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team for a private deep-sea charter boat sport fishing trip in Fort Lauderdale, FL aboard the Happy Day Today.  We had nice deep-sea conditions out of Fort Lauderdale with a light easterly wind, a two-foot chop, north current and 80-degree temperature.   We started the fishing charter catching a half a dozen Bullet Bonitas in 80 feet of water, using a light feather jig with a bird, and trolling on and off the reef structure.  Bullets make great baits for all fish species, and we decided to fish them on top of a wreck structure.  We headed south for a few miles and came across Frigate birds, which were circling over a deep-sea wreck, with some diving into the baits. On the surface, Ballyhoo baits were showering on the surface - always a great sign.   The first baits went out on wire with stinger rigs.  Wire rigs are the

The Black Fin Tunas have started to show up for us here in Fort Lauderdale. The size of the Tunas are smaller, weighing 6 to 12 pounds, but still are a lot of fun to catch and are great to eat. We look for birds diving, as well as the fish crashing on top of the surface, and we are finding the Tunas anywhere from 150 feet of water out to 400 feet of water.   It’s not hard to mistake - once there is a school the size of a football field, it looks like the water is boiling with activity.   As soon as you spot the birds, they start diving on the school of fish - be sure to keep your eyes on them, as they will disappear as quickly as you spot them. Mixed in with the Black Fin Tunas are Skip Jack Tunas and Bullet Bonitas, and we’ll catch them all when we troll past the school of fish.  The best part of working a big school of fish is when you get multiple hook ups getting 3 to 4 fish on at once.  &nbs
