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

Matthew and Julie Goldwasser, their children, Sue and Ari, and the grandparents all from Massachusetts chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team to do some deep sea charter boat sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. As Matt boarded the boat with his wife, children and parents, I asked him what type of fish they would be interested in catching. They wanted to catch eating fish, preferably Mahi Mahi.

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. We started trolling with two planners with sea witches on both planners in front of a double hooked Bonito strips, along with four surface baits. For the past couple of days there was one wreck south of Fort Lauderdale in 150 ft. of water that has been holding bait fish. In return, the predators were there feeding on these bait fish.

As we headed towards the wreck, the Goldwasser family was enjoying the blue skies and great Fort Lauderdale weather. As we got close to the wreck, one of our planner rods tripped with a swing and a miss. Then, the other planner rod tripped – we got lucky with this one – fish on. Matt reeled in the first fish which was an 8 lb. Kingfish. We continued trolling around the wreck catching a couple of Barracudas and an Amberjack.

From there I headed towards another wreck which was close by and the depth recorded marked a lot of bait fish there. Both children participated in reeling in their fishes – a Kingfish and a good size Barracuda.

It was now time to head back to the dock in Fort Lauderdale with a total of four Kingfish, two Barracudas, one Amberjack and two Bonitos. 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, our mate, Dave, filet out the fish for the family to take home for dinner. No Mahi Mahi, but still good fresh fish for dinner.

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

Eric Woodke, Craig Brown and Kyle & Chris Krzewina were down from Wisconsin on a working vacation when they decided to charter the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team to do some deep-sea charter boat sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Erik and his friends were looking for eatable fish to have a fish fry and also some fish to take back to Green Bay, Wisconsin, so our objective was targeting eating fish.

We headed out the inlet and started trolling by the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale, 1.8 miles from shore at 120 ft. of water. If you venture off another quarter of a mile, you would find yourself in 500 ft. of water due to our extreme drop off.

We put out two #8 plainers – one with a blue and pink sea witch in front of a Bonito strip and for the long plainer rod, we put out a 3 ½ blue reflector drone spoon. For surface baits we went with two Ballyhoos and two Bonito strips. I trolled from one artificial wreck to the other, which consists of barges, sailboats, oil rigs, freighters, etc., ranging in 80 ft. of water out to 540 ft. – we have approximately 34 artificial wrecks in Fort Lauderdale.

As the action started, all the anglers took turns bringing in their catches, as well as taking pictures and recording their angling and fishing abilities, while the cheering on and razing occurred. We would up with a total of 13 Bonitos, four Black Fin Tunas, one Skip Jack Tuna and two Kingfish. Plenty of fish for the grill tonight and to take back home to Green Bay, Wisconsin.

It was time to get 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, David, our mate, fillet out the fish for the anglers.

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

The Davis family, Ed, Linette, Harrison and Reese, from Philadelphia chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team to do some deep sea charter boat sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The Davis’ were looking forward to getting out there and having a fun fishing trip.

We started trolling by the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale in 120 ft of water 1.8 miles from shore. We put out two kites with two live Goggle Eyes from each kite. We also put a dead Bonita bait 100 ft. down and another 200 ft. down on the bottom. Our target species were Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Shark and Grouper.

Shortly after setting out the kite baits, a Mahi Mahi fed and we had one on. The Mahi Mahi jumped out of the water 4 to 5 times. Harrison was the angler, and he fought this Mahi very well. He ended up catching a 12 pounder – Mark, our mate, gaffed the Mahi Mahi and put him in the fish box on ice.

We set back up and went back to fishing our spread of baits, when all of a sudden we got a huge hit. The rod bent over and drag started ripping out. Ed hopped in the fighting chair and started battling this fish. I maneuvered the boat, constantly keeping the fish behind the boat, as he would make big runs to the surface then sound. Ed angled the fish up and it turned out to be an 8 and a half foot Hammerhead Shark. We got the fish up onto the boat, removed the hooks, got a few quick photos and released the Shark to fight another day.

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.
