Our charter today aboard the Happy Day Today with theTopshotfishing team out of Fort Lauderdale FL was Rick Fussell and daughter,Haley, with friend, Courtney, from Tennessee. We had variable winds 5-7 mph, 2 ft. seas - a picturesque sunny day herein <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placetype w:st="on">Ft.</st1:placetype> <st1:placename w:st="on">Lauderdale</st1:placename></st1:place>. Rick’s goal was to catch a large fish, and Isuggested we find some nice large Sharks off of <st1:city w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Fort Lauderdale</st1:place></st1:city>. For the past two weeks, Shark action has beenexcellent here in <st1:city w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Fort Lauderdale</st1:place></st1:city>.

Off we went – twenty minutes after leaving the dock we werein 350 ft. of water north of the sea buoy off of <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:city w:st="on">Fort Lauderdale</st1:city> <st1:state w:st="on">FL</st1:state></st1:place>,close to one of my favorite artificial wreck, a 220 ft. freighter that was sunkback in 1981. These wrecks hold varioustypes of bait fish and in return the predators know where to feed. These are the “supermarkets” of theseas. We put out three Shark baits, oneon the surface, one midrange down 150 ft. and a third bait sitting on thebottom. I could see a dorsal finapproaching our surface bait; the fish was not aggressive at all. It swam slowly to the bait but was notinterested and swam past the bait to the south of <st1:city w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Fort Lauderdale</st1:place></st1:city>. A few minutes later a fishing boat to thenorth of me called on the radio and said he saw a Shark heading my way –hopefully this one would feed. As theShark approached the surface bait, he was very aggressive, and he grabbed theShark bait – the fight was on!!!!! ThisShark was a big one!!! Rick jumped intothe fighting chair, and we secured him and the rod down with safety lines. The tug of war continued, and Rick was doinga fantastic job reeling in the Shark, while support was heard from thegirls. Finally the Shark appeared 50 ft.from the boat – a Golden Hammerhead, and all were amazed by its size. The fight was a long one with losing andgaining lines, but finally Rick subdued him and brought the Shark to theboat. We measured the Shark in thewater, and it was 107” long and approximately 350 lbs. Pictures were taken, the Shark was releasedand Rick decided to do a replica mount. Back to the dock at <st1:place w:st="on">Bahia</st1:place>Mar 801 Seabrezee Blvd, Fort Lauderdale 33316
