    Fort Lauderdale Fishing with Top Shot Sportfishing Charter Boat and Capt. Zsak

    Andrew, David, Jose, Neil, Erin and Kevin chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team to do some deep-sea charter boat sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The guys were celebrating Jose's bachelor party while fishing with our team.

    We started the morning catching live bait at the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale. With a chum bag and light spinning tackle, the guys caught a dozen Blue Runners. After catching bait, we cleared the lines and started trolling in 100 feet of water north of Fort Lauderdale, 1.8 miles from shore. If you venture off another quarter of a mile, you would find yourself in 500 ft. of water due to our extreme drop off.

    We used two deep planner lines and 3 surface lines. The first Kingfish was caught on one of the deep planner lines with a double hooked Bonito strip with a sea witch in front. Our mate, Troy, put the Kingfish in the fish box. There was a school of Kingfish in this area, so we concentrated on making turns over the school from offshore to inshore which was the best direction. We caught 5 Kingfish keepers and let 3 undersized Kingfish go.

    Next, we decided to kite fish – we put two kites out with two live Blue Runners for baits per kite and set up in 185 ft. of water. We also put a Shark bait down on the bottom. After a good try for Sailfish and Shark and no shots, we decided to go back to trolling. As soon as we got the baits in the water, we started catching Black Fin Tunas and caught a total of six of them.

    After a good day fishing it was time to come home. The anglers retired into the a/c salon and enjoyed the relaxing trip back to the dock at Bahia Bar Yachting Center, 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316. Troy filet the catches so that the anglers can enjoy them for dinner that night.

    For a successful and adventurous deep-sea fishing charter in Fort Lauderdale FL for Sailfish, Shark, Bonito, Mackerel, Swordfish, Snapper, Wahoo, Tuna, Mahi Mahi and Grouper, contact Captain Zsak. - 954-309-7457 or email us at tzsak@bellsouth.net Website: www.topshotfishing.com.

    Looking for a responsible person who would be interested in swapping deer hunting in Ohio for saltwater fishing. Allegiant has cheap flights. I pick you up and take you back to airport plus put you up. No guarantees but deer usually end up in the freezer. Private message me and we'll see if we click.

    Fort Lauderdale Fishing with Top Shot Sportfishing Charter Boat and Capt. Zsak


    Repeat customers, Luke Beattie, along with Kim once again chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team for a private deep sea charter boat sport fishing trip in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

    The first thing we did was grab a few Goggle Eyes live baits from the marina - they are excellent kite fishing baits. We started the morning trolling the reef in 120 ft. of water – we had cool weather (75 degrees) with the winds blowing from the north of Fort Lauderdale. The ocean was very calm with a teal green color. We put out 3 Ballyhoos for bait, rigged to swim on the surface, and two lures, along with two long baits and two short baits with one flat line close to the boat also with two deep planner lines with a sea witch strip bait diving 50 feet down.

    We trolled from 120 ft. of water out to 300 ft. and found a nice color change in 200 ft. of water. The color change had bait fish hanging around it along with a little bit of current - we concentrated on this area. We slow trolled the Ballyhoo baits along the edge of the color change to the north of Fort Lauderdale and started catching Kingfish. Both Luke and Kim took turns and we caught 4 nice size Kingfish. Our next bite was a big one with screaming drag. Kim was the angler, and with a good battle, caught a large offshore Jack Crevalle.

    Next, we put two kites up in the air with 3 live baits and one dead bait. We set up in 130 feet of water just outside of the reef line. With the last hour left on the trip, we were hoping to hook up with a Sailfish or something hungry for the Goggle Eyes. Unfortunately, we did not have any takers, and it was now time to head home.

    On our way back to the dock, the anglers retired into the a/c salon and enjoyed the relaxing trip back to Bahia Mar Yachting Center, 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316. I look forward to having Luke back again next year.
