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

    Bobby and Kaitlen Barnes chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team for a private deep sea charter boat sport fishing trip in Fort Lauderdale, FL

    Fifteen to twenty minutes after leaving the dock, lines were in 120 ft. of water at the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale, 1.8 miles from shore. If you venture off another ¼ of a mile, you would find yourself in 500 ft. of water, which we exclusively have here in Fort Lauderdale, due to Fort Lauderdale’s extreme drop off. The further north you go, the further the drop off swings off shore.

    We started the morning trolling to the south, and we caught a few Bonitas. Once we found the blue water with bait fish in 150 feet of water, we decided to live bait kite fish with 2 kites and sent out the first kite with two live Goggle Eyes. The second kite had a dead bait and a live bait. As soon as we got the baits in position, a Hammerhead Shark started eating the dead bait. We set the hook and had him on for a minute, and then the hook pulled out of his mouth. We reset the baits, and the Shark showed up again, circling around the baits. After a good show with his dorsal out of the water thrashing on the water, he finally tried us again, but this time the hook was set deep in his mouth and we had him on. The Shark gave a good fight, and after some time of fighting him, the angler got the Hammerhead Shark up along side the boat for a photo and got released.

    We set back up with the same spread of baits. I looked out to the long bait and saw a dorsal fin and yelled down to the mate to get ready. It was a Sailfish, and he ate the Goggle Eye bait – hooked up! The Sailfish’s first run was heading towards the beach. He made some good jumps in the air pulling off lots of drag. After a good fight, we got him to the boat and released the Sailfish to fight another day.

    It was now time to head back to the dock. The happy anglers retired into the a/c salon watching the plasma TV and enjoying the relaxing trip back to the dock at Bahia Bar Yachting Center, 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316.

    March has produced unreliable weather conditions and water levels this month do to full moom have been super high making conditions tough to fish during high tide.

    Rising water temperatures equals great snook action. Snook are just about everywhere you look. Docks, seawalls and flats are teaming with schoolie snook and big female snook. Live baits and DOA artificial lures produce strikes. The average size of the snook have been from 5 to 25 pounds. Sight fishing for snook is a blast and can easily make an angler tremble and knees buckle, as nerves take over, this is what fishing is all about.

    Mangrove shorelines and seawalls have been producing great black drum action. Black drum relies on scent, anglers using shrimp, clams, and crabs have best results, but and flies also work. The key to drum fishing is patients and great vision these fish blend in well with their surroundings. The average size of the drum has been 5 to 20 pounds.

    Freshwater action has been stellar in local lakes and canals. Bridges and channels were water has current produces bass, knife fish and peacock bass. Live baits and DOA terror eyz great baits to get the strike

    Well that is the fishing report for the past week hope you all enjoyed. Remember you can’t catch them from the couch, so get out there and get hooked up. Tight Lines! Capt. Craig Korczynski, PhlatsInshoreFishing.com, 561-644-437. Visit us on Facebook, Instagram, twitter and youtube.

    There is a new spinnerbait to the market. It has a Flexible Blade Arm which is different from regular spinnerbaits with a Rigid Blade Arm. The Flexible Blade Arm allows the blade to spin in a erratic action which the Bass are not used to. You can trow into cover without getting pinned between sticks and diversifies where you can throw it. The Flexible Blade Arm makes it more weedless also. On a Stop and Go retrieve it pulses which entices the fish to Strike. They are sold by Redbone Bait Company

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

    Jim Carroccia and his family chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team for a private deep sea charter boat sport fishing trip in Fort Lauderdale, FL. We had clear skies with pretty blue waters with some scattered weed.

    Fifteen to twenty minutes after leaving the dock, lines were in 120 ft. of water at the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale, 1.8 miles from shore. If you venture off another ¼ of a mile, you would find yourself in 500 ft. of water, which we exclusively have here in Fort Lauderdale, due to Fort Lauderdale’s extreme drop off. The further north you go, the further the drop off swings off shore.

    We started trolling the reef line drop off north of Fort Lauderdale and started the trip catching bait around an anchored ship in 150 of water. We caught a hand full of Bonita using jig lures. We then started trolling up the reef line trolling over wreck and rock structures. The first bite we got was right on top of a wreck, and we caught a Kingfish. We continued trolling and got double header bites. We fought those fish and got a full grown Bonita. I continued trolling north and caught another few Bonitas.

    We decided to change things up and went into kite fishing. We put a kite up in the air with a couple of live baits and a bait down on the bottom. All of a sudden, I saw a black shadow underneath the live bait, and it was Sailfish. Jacob was our angler, and he started fighting the Sailfish. The Sailfish jumped out of the water, making big runs and came back up jumping again. After a great fight, we got the Sailfish up to the boat, removed the hooks, got a photo and released the Sailfish. We went back to trolling and picked up another few Bonitas.

    It was now time to head back to the dock. The happy anglers retired into the a/c salon watching the plasma TV and enjoying the relaxing trip back to the dock at Bahia Bar Yachting Center, 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316.
