    Mr. John Right and friends from South Carolina chartered the Happy Day Today, along with the Topshotfishing team here in Fort Lauderdale FL.

    We had sunny skies, temperature in the mid 70's and winds out of the south, southeast at 12 mph. Mr. Right requested to catch a Mahi Mahi, so I started trolling offshore of Fort Lauderdale to the drop off out to 200 to 300 feet of water. We fished four top surface baits, we had 4 Ballyhoo's, a jap feather down the center rigger and one plainer down with a # 3 blue drone spoon. While trolling we caught a couple of King Fish. I trolled to the north of Fort Lauderdale to some freighter ships that were anchored in 350 ft. of water - I felt this was a good place to find some Mahi Mahi's. The first fish hooked was a 7 lb. Tuna - not a big one, but great for Sushi. As I trolled to the other ship, I could see some birds working the area. All at once four Mahi Mahi's were hooked up on the surface baits with lines going under and over each other, winding up with 4 Mahi Mahiís in the fish box. We kept trolling picking away at more Mahi Mahiís, and then the right fish came along - a 23 lb. Mahi Mahi.

    With a good catch of fish on the charter boat Happy Day, it was time to start heading back. This ends another successful and adventurous deep sea fishing charter on the Happy Day Today with the Topshotfishing team and Captain Zsak - 954-439-8106 Ė www.topshotfishing.com

    Nice report!

    I thought they only became mahi-mahi on the dinner table, unless of course you are from Hawaii.
