    Off Shore Fishing Topshotfishing Happy Day Today topshotfishing 10/13/21 02:08 AM
    We had a group of 6 guys down from North Carolina looking to fish offshore and target some good eating fish aboard the charter boat Happy Day Today with the Top Shot Sportfishing Team. The weather was nice with light easterly winds and a couple of foot chop up on the sea.

    As we were heading out of the inlet, the first mate was rigging up the tackle for Black Fin Tuna. We’ve been seeing both a morning and afternoon Tuna bite, and they have been feeding anywhere from 100 feet of water out to 500 feet of water. Once we came off a plane, the guys sent out the trolling lines, both surface and deep baits.

    I worked the drop offs and headed over sunken wreck structures. We got a nice strike on the planner line, and the angler brought in a Tuna. Then on the outrigger, we caught another two nice fish. The Tuna bite was better the day before, so we decided to change tactics and head offshore in search of Mahi Mahi. We got out about 6 miles offshore and found a nice weed line with a few birds diving. As soon as we made the turn on top of the birds, the rigger line came down, and we had a Mahi Mahi on the line. The first mate had a Ballyhoo on a spinner and casted it out quickly, coming tight on another fish.

    After catching the two Mahi’s, we continued trolling down the rip heading south into the current. Suddenly, the deep planner line started ripping offline. The angler got on the Penn 50 International and started fighting the fish. After some fast runs and zipping off drag, the angler got the fish closer to the back of the boat, and up came a nice Wahoo. The mate started wiring the Wahoo in; he reached down, gaffed the Wahoo, and put it in the fish box.

    I turned the boat heading back to the area where we got the bite and saw a floating board, which was what the Wahoo was on. We made a few passes in this same area, hooking another Mahi. The angler fought and caught this fish; the mate gaffed and put in the fish box. We continued down the rip, and after a few more passes with no bites, we thought there weren’t any more fish, but then the planner line got a strike. We caught another Wahoo, not as big as the first one, but still a nice fish.

    The last stop for the day was to try for some Snappers. The mate rigged up a 5-circle hook rig with fresh cut bait. I headed to a wreck structure; the guys dropped down the rig, and we caught some Vermillion Snappers.

    It was now time to head home after a fun and action-packed morning fishing charter out of Fort Lauderdale. To book your deep-sea fishing adventure, contact Capt. Zsak at 954-439-8106.

    Living rubber gives your jig a “life like appearance” particularly when first resting on the bottom. The material is more relaxed in the water and reacts in a slower fashion than silicone. This seems to be most important in the winter when the bass are lethargic. To keep your living rubber jigs in good condition: store in a “not hot” location and out of direct sunlight, place your jigs into your storage contained after you have allowed them to dry. I construct my jigs with quality components and assemble in a way to make them both durable and tough.
    Go to my store at and stock up. Thanks, Michael[Linked Image]

    Inshore Fishing Jump to new posts
    Oct 2021 New Smyrna Daytona Mosquito Lagoon Backcountry Capt Michael Savedow 10/04/21 12:53 PM
    Fall 2021 is knocking at the door here in East Central Florida, the mullet bait fish run has started, schools of swimming bait will be moving south down the coast along the beach and some of these schools will be coming down the intracoastal waterway into my backcountry area at New Smyrna Beach and Mosquito Lagoon. Inshore game fish will be on swimming south also, eating the mullet as they go, schools of fun surface game fish like Jack Crevalle, Bluefish and Ladyfish hit the mullet on top, making for easy to see surface activity to cast lure or bait into for a fast hookup and drag pull. These fish are migrating south down the coast in fall after summering up north, they will winter in south Florida. Our resident fish which are here year round will be feeding on mullet and shrimp also, Snook, Seatrout, Black Drum, Whiting, Redfish, just some of the other usual catches in the Mosquito Lagoon backcountry. Eva from Tennessee caught a nice Black Drum out on a recent trip along with other fish of varying species…………..


    ………. a nice Spotted Seatrout also for young Eva …………..


    An occasional Permit has become a not uncommon catch the last several years here in East Central Florida, sometimes swimming with Pompano schools …..…….


    Black Drum continue to be a usual catch here in the back waters, feeding mainly on shrimp and crabs, Drum up to 5 lbs. a fun fish on light tackle, Gary from Connecticut with one recently ………...


    Jack Crevalle are one of my most common rod benders, lots of hard pulling fun, a great catch and release fish, Greg from Minnesota with a nice one …………..
