Fishing Fort Lauderdale with Topshotfishing and Capt. Zsak
Fishing buddies from Oregon, Justin Harris and Chris Boyd, chartered the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea big game sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Both anglers are avid fishermen with good catches under their belts. Winds were out of the east at 10-15 mph, seas running 2-4 ft., temperatures in the mid 80’s with blue skies here in Fort Lauderdale.
As Chris and Justin boarded the boat, we discussed the type of fishing they wanted to do. They both wanted to catch Mahi Mahi’s.
Fifteen minutes after leaving the dock, we put lines in the water north of the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale located in 120 ft. of water 1.8 miles from shore. We started off trolling with two plainers down and four surface baits (two Ballyhoos and two Bonito strips). I headed out towards the southeast of Fort Lauderdale looking for any debris or weed lines – anything that would attract Mahi Mahi’s. When you find debris or sargassum weed floating in the seas, it’s like an oasis in the desert – these objects will hold bait fish and in return the predators will not be too far behind.
Our first catches were two Bonitos and a Kingfish, as the two anglers took turns bringing in the fish. I kept trolling towards the southeast and ran across some scattered sargassum weeds. As I worked this area, I found a tree branch mixed in with the weeds. As I circled this area, the first Mahi Mahi came out from underneath the debris. Chris was the angler and reeled in a 12 lb. Mahi Mahi that Dave, our mate, gaffed, put in the fish box and said “Welcome aboard from the Topshotfishing team”. As I kept working the area, the plainer rod got hooked up and the rod tip bounced up and down, a sure sign that it was a Wahoo. Justin was our angler and he reeled in a 10 lb. Wahoo. In this area, we caught a total of four Mahi Mahi’s and one Wahoo.
It was time to head back from our deep sea fishing charter to the Bahia Mar Dock, located at 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316. The anglers enjoyed the relaxing trip back to the dock in the a/c salon.
