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

Harry Kuant, Anilda Kuant, Felipe and Kandy Londono and Jorge and Laura Riojas chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team to do some deep sea charter boat sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. We had cool weather with 75 degrees, winds blowing from the north – the water was very calm with a teal green color

We started the morning trolling the reefs in 120 ft. of water, 1.8 miles from shore north of Fort Lauderdale. We put out five surface baits rigged with Ballyhoo baits – two long baits and two short baits with one flat line close to the boat and one deep plainer line with a seawitch strip bait 50 feet down. We trolled from 120 ft. deep to 300 ft. of water and found a nice color change in 200 ft. The color change had bait fish hanging around it, and there was a little bit of current in the color change – we concentrated on this area.

We slow trolled the Ballyhoo baits along the edge of the color change. All of a sudden the right rigger came screaming down, and a giant Sailfish came jumping out of the water. Fish on! Jorge was the first angler, and he fought this Sailfish long and hard with gains and losses on the line. The Sailfish swam up and down the seas until it came up along side the boat for a photo and a release.

We continued back to trolling the reef in 200 ft. of water, where the color change was, changing angles and depths. We worked the area looking for another fish, when all of a sudden we got another huge bite. The line came ripping down – we had another big one on!! Felipe was the angler, and he jumped into the fighting chair, pulling back and reeling down on the Sailfish. He lost some line and gained it back until the Sailfish was along the side of the boat for a quick photo.

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. We hope to have everyone back in the near future.

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

Dave and Rick from California and Gary and John from Pennsylvania were down in Fort Lauderdale and decided to charter the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team to do some deep sea charter boat sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. We had choppy seas ranging from 3 to 4 feet and the wind was blowing out of the southeast.

As we left the inlet, we headed to the northeast of Fort Lauderdale where a structure lies in 300 feet of water – we started the day fishing in this spot. The water had a deep blue color, as well as some north current going about a nautical knot. We put out two kites – a right kite and a left kite – with two live Goggle Eyes for baits per kite. We had a perfect spread of baits, and I knew a Sailfish would be showing up.

After some time of working the kites, a Sailfish’s dorsal fin popped up on the left kite bait. Matt, our mate fed the Sailfish, and as the Sailfish got hooked, he came jumping out of the water. The Sailfish started ripping drag out and running all over to get away. Dave was the angler, and he did a super job reeling in the Sailfish to the side of the boat. The Sailfish was brought into the boat for photos, and was released into the water to swim away.

We went back to kite fishing and put the same set back out. This time a Mahi Mahi ate the Goggle Eye bait, and it gave us a good fight. The angler brought the Mahi to the side of the boat, where we gaffed him and put him on ice. Mahi’s are good eating fish.

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, Matt filet the Mahi for the anglers to enjoy for tonight’s dinner.

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

Two local fishermen from Fort Lauderdale, Cain Elias and Josh Largo, chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team to do some deep sea charter boat sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Both guys wanted to target Sailfish, so our game plan was to kite fish.

On the way out we stopped at the bait boat and got a dozen live Goggle Eyes. As we headed out of the inlet, we had 4 to 5 foot seas with a steady east wind blowing 15 mph. Within fifteen to twenty minutes we were fishing in 120 ft. of water, 1.8 miles from shore south of Fort Lauderdale. We put out two kites, one on the right and the other on the left, with two live Goggle Eyes from each kite. Kite fishing is a very good way to fish live baits, as they are naturally presented to predator fish such as Mahi Mahi, Wahoo and Sailfish. Once the kites are out, we next constantly adjust the live bait, so that they are just below the water line, then we wait and watch. All of sudden a dorsal fin come out of the water and circled the bait. I could see that the Sailfish was getting ready to feed. He ate the right short bait. As the Sailfish got hooked, he started jumping out of the water, doing 360 degree flips. The first angler up was Cain. He did a superb job angling, and after 20 minutes, he got the Sailfish up along side the boat. The hooks were taken out, pictures were taken and the Sailfish was safely released.

I got the boat back in position and reset the two kites with four live Goggle Eye baits. A repeat of the previous action – a Sailfish came up to the right short bait, dorsal fin up, and started swimming around the Goggle Eye bait. The Sailfish ate the bait fish, and we had a Sailfish on once again. The Sailfish ran off a lot of line until the line got tight and the Sailfish started jumping out of the water. Josh was the angler, and he did a great job reeling in the Sailfish. After about twenty minutes, the Sailfish was along the side of the boat. The hooks were released, photos were taken and the Sailfish was released back into the waters.

It was now time to head back to the dock. What a great job both Cain and Josh did in bringing in the Sailfish. 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.

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

Felipe Lahersseai and sons Felipe, Mikel, Manuel, Ricardo and Luis chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team to do some, deep-sea charter boat sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Conditions for the day were cloudy skies with the wind direction out of the east and the seas were 3 to 5 feet with temperatures in the mid 70’s.

We started out the morning trolling in 150 ft. of water with four surface Ballyhoo baits and two deep plainer lines fishing the reef area. We trolled up and down the reef from deeper waters into shallower waters, trying to find fish going over rock structures, reef and wreck structures. I made a turn offshore north of Fort Lauderdale and went out to deeper waters, hoping to find indicators that fish were around, such as birds, floating boards or a weed line. While heading offshore, I spotted a few birds diving, so I trolled our baits over to that spot, As soon as we passed the birds, two lines came down, and we had double header Mahi Mahi’s on the line. The boys grabbed the rods and started fighting the Mahi Mahi’s. The Mahi’s fought hard, pulling drag out and swimming back and forth, jumping and sounding. The boys did a good job and brought the Mahi’s to the back of the transom, where our mate, Marc, gaffed the fish and put them in the fish box.

We went back to trolling and continued searching the area. I headed towards even deeper waters, got out to 500 feet and found a rip line. While working the rip lines, I saw a school of flying fish get out of the water. Two of our rigger lines came down, and two Sailfish were on. Both of the Sailfish jumped out of the water showing their magnificent colors and tail-walking. One of the Sailfish came off the hook, but we still had the other one on. Luis was the angler, and did a great job, fighting the Sailfish. He managed to bring the Sailfish along the side of the boat for picture taking, and the Sailfish was released to fight another day. We went back to trolling the area and worked the rip line for the remainder of the trip with no more bites.

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.
