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

Kai Rich, Adam Roberson and Robert Hillhouse all from Georgia chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team for a private deep sea charter boat sport fishing trip in Fort Lauderdale, FL. As they boarded the boat, they were greeted by Captain Zsak and mate, Dave, from the Top Shot Sportfishing Charter Boat Team.

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 the reef with two deep planned lines and four surface lines in 150 feet of water south of Fort Lauderdale. We start fishing at that depth because it is a good depth for all species like Bonita, Kingfish, Sailfish and Mahi. We were heading offshore a little deeper out to 400 feet of water, and as we traveled back into shallower waters, we started catching Kingfish. I continued working the area in Fort Lauderdale picking up Bonitas and more Kingfish, ranging from the deeper side of the reef into the top of the reef in 100 feet of water. We also caught a 30 pound Silky Shark while trolling.

Next, I decided to set out two kites with three live baits and one dead bait. Soon after we were kite fishing, a Hammerhead Shark came cruising along and fed on the dead bait. This Shark was about 7 feet long. The angler did a great job with this Shark, bringing it to the side of the boat for picture taking – the Shark was released and swam away unharmed. I continued kite fishing, and within 30 minutes, we had another Hammerhead Shark show up. The Shark fed on the bait, and we were tight again. Another good fight - this Shark was a little smaller at 5 ½ feet long. Again, the angler brought the Shark to the side of the boat for picture taking and was released. We then picked up our lines, ran to shallower water and reset the kites back up in the air. As soon as we got the baits in the water, a 6 foot Sailfish started to feed. This Sailfish got tangled in the line, and before we could even reel the line tight on this fish, he jumped and cleared the hook, getting away.

With a total of four Kingfish, four Bonitas and three Sharks, 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.
