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

Joe and his sons, Mike and Ken, chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team to do some deep-sea charter boat sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

We started the charter trolling, using two deep lines with bait strips and three surface lines with Ballyhoo. We trolled from 100 feet of water out to 300 feet of water heading to the south of Fort Lauderdale, fishing up the current edge and back over the reef. While trolling, I am also looking for birds and baitfish, which are signs that there are predators around. We got our first bite, a 10 lb. Kingfish, in 130 ft. of water. We continued trolling and caught another 10 lb Kingfish. The next two fish we caught were Bonitas, which we got on the 3 inch drone spoon. We were trolling over wrecks and rock piles along the reef line and the best area was in 150 ft. of water. Next, we got a bite on the surface rigger line, which was a Barracuda.

The guys wanted something big, so we tried going for a Shark. We put out three baits, one on the surface, one midrange and one on the bottom. It did not take long before we got a Shark bite. An 8 foot Hammerhead Shark ate the surface bait, and we had this Shark on. The Shark ripped out 100 yards of drag and sounded - all the guys were angling, and did a great job. Each run was less but the Shark still put on a show. After 45 minutes of fighting the Shark, we got it along side the boat for a photo and released the Shark to live another day.

After a great fishing charter, it was 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.
