Fishing <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:city w:st="on">Fort Lauderdale</st1:city></st1:place> on Happy Day Today with Capt. Zsak

Eric Belanger from <st1:country-region w:st="on">Canada</st1:country-region>and his grandmother, Pauline Lacroix, from <st1:city w:st="on">Fort Lauderdale</st1:city><st1:state w:st="on">FL</st1:state> chartered the Happy Day Today along withthe Topshotfishing team to do some fishing <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:city w:st="on">Fort Lauderdale</st1:city> <st1:state w:st="on">FL.</st1:state></st1:place> We had winds out of the east 12-18 mph, 4-6ft. seas and blue skies with a brisk breeze.

Being close to the inlet, 15 minutes after leaving the dock,lines were in the water at 200 ft. of water. We had two kites out, with two live Goggle Eyes from each kite. Eric was telling fish stories of the Pike andBass that he has hanging in his trophy room, along with his Moose head. Today we were looking for a Sailfish. Our first fish to appear was a Sailfish. This one swam around the bait, not interestedin feeding; Jackson, our mate, raised and lowered the live bait, to make itsplash and entice the Sailfish, but no luck. Sailfish are like any other live creaturse – if they are not hungry,they do not feed. By observing the way a fish swims towards the bait, sometimesyou can determine whether it will feed or not.

Forty-five minutes later another Sailfish appeared on theleft short. This Sailfish too swam up tothe bait very slowly, and <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:city w:st="on">Jackson</st1:city></st1:place>repeatedly splashed the bait. The colorof the Sailfish changed to amber-brown, which indicates one thing – he isgetting mad and he attacked the bait. All Billfish kill for a living – if you aggravate a Billfish enough, hewill attack, whether he is hungry or not. As the Sailfish attacked the bait, he got hooked in the bill. The Sailfish came flying out of the water andscreamed the line off the Shimano TLD 25. With experience on Eric’s side, the battle was on, as his grandmotherstarted taking pictures. By the time wecleared all lines, ¾ of the line was off the real. I backed down the boat to retrieve some line,and Eric did a great job bringing in the Sailfish in the rough seas. Pictures were taken of the 92” Sailfish.
