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

Mark Furr and his son, Logen, from North Carolina along with Robert Bird and his son, Jack, from Colorado chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team to do some deep sea charter boat sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. This was a bonding trip for the two fathers and their sons spending important time with each other – both families were on vacation down in Fort Lauderdale. Bob chose the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team for this important fishing trip after reading our 400 reviews posted on Tripadvisor and seeing that we have a 5 star rating.

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 due to our extreme drop off. We started trolling with two #8 planners with sea witches and Bonito strips on both. For surface baits we went with two Bonito strips and two Ballyhoos. We trolled the reef drop off to the north of Fort Lauderdale on the color change searching for bait fish and hitting some of our 34 artificial wrecks that sit off of Fort Lauderdale. Our first fish was an 8 lb. Kingfish followed by a couple of Bonitos.

I noticed some birds working the area to the east of Fort Lauderdale, so I headed out to them. Planner rod right side – Planner rod left side – as the two sons, Logen and Jack, had a double header on – both were rewarded with two nice Kingfish. Troy, our mate, gaffed the fish and put them in the fish box. We kept trolling and all the anglers took turns reeling in a total of 10 Kingfish, 3 Barracudas, 3 Bonitos and 1 Tuna. Congratulations, anglers, for a job well done.

It was now time to head back to the dock. 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. At the dock, Troy fillet out their catch for the anglers to enjoy for their evening meal.
