Lauderdale on Happy Day Today with Capt. Zsak
Tony Silvestri and his son Andrew from Tulsa,
OK along with friend, Rodger Goldman and his
children, Philip and Meredith, from Ponte Vedra,
FL chartered the Happy Day Today along with
the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea charter fishing in Fort Lauderdale FL. The children on board ranged from ages
5-9. Winds were out of the northeast at
15 mph, seas running 4-5 ft. with clear skies.
This was Rogers
first time fishing with the Happy Day Today but his 13th time in
trying to catch a Sailfish – Hopefully 13 will be his lucky number aboard the
Happy Day Today!!!
We stopped to purchase a dozen live Goggle Eyes from T&T
Bait. Fifteen minutes from the dock,
lines were in 120 ft. of water at the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale FL. I put out two kites with two live Goggle Eyes
from each kite and one live Goggle Eye from the outrigger. Our first fish came from the outrigger which
was an 11 lb. Kingfish. As we sat
patiently waiting for his arrival, water exploded on the left long. Sailfish in the air immediately!!!! But, the hook pulled. Well, Rodger, don’t loose hope – with
patience we will get another Sailfish.
A black shadow appeared on the right short – dorsal and bill
out of the water 50 ft. from the boat as he frantically chased the live Goggle
Eye until it was captured. The fight was
on!!! Rodger hopped into the fighting chair
– now it was up to Rodger to fulfill his dream, but not alone as Philip and
Meredith, each took turn assisting their dad in bringing in the Sailfish. Twenty-five minutes later Mark, our mate,
brought the Sailfish in measuring 78” for picture taking and release. We reset our kites again and this time it
was Tony’s turn. With five minutes left
on the trip, another black shadow made an appearance grabbing the left short
bait – off he went. Another fantastic
show was put on by the Atlantic Sailfish as the sun glittered down on his neon
body. Twenty-five minutes later Tony
brought his 89” Sailfish to the boat for picture taking.
The anglers retired along with their children into the a/c
salon for the trip back to the dock at Bahia
Mar 801 Seabreeze Blvd.
Fort Lauderdale 33316. Mark filet the Mahi Mahi’s which will be
served for dinner tonight.
