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

Michael and Lisa Brazytis from Texas along with their friends, Lonnie and Karen Hegge, from Nebraska chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing Charter Boat team to do some deep sea big game sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at Bahia Mar Yachting Center, 801 Seabreeze Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316. The Brazytis are repeat customers and have enjoyed fishing with the Top Shot Sportfishing Charter Boat team in the past.

Fifteen 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 out trolling with two #8 plainers, one with a chartreuse and white sea witch and the other with a pink and blue sea witch, both with double hooked Bonito strips. For surface baits we went with two Bonito strips and two Ballyhoos.

We trolled the reefs, zigzagging in and out north of Fort Lauderdale. We started getting Kingfish and Bonito bites to the north of the sea buoy in 135 ft. of water. All the anglers took turns reeling in their catches.

We continued trolling over 8 miles working on and off the reef line from 90 ft. out to 200 ft. of water heading up to the north of Fort Lauderdale and fishing over wrecks and rock structures, targeting bait schools and always searching for birds. The anglers caught a total of seven Bonitos and six Kingfish. Another 4 fish got away and we released four Kingfish because they were undersized. Kingfish must be over 2 ft to keep.

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 Mar Yachting Center, 801 Seabreeze Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316, while watching the plasma TV.
