Fort Lauderdale Fishing with Top Shot Sportfishing Charter Boat and Capt. Zsak
John Ricci and his family, John, Lana and Calson, along with their friend, Ben, all from Canada, 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. As they boarded the fishing charter boat, I asked them what type of fish they would be interested in catching, and their response was, “any fish – as long as we enjoy ourselves.
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 from 80 ft. out to 180 ft. of water. All the kids were cheering each other on as they each brought in their catches – what a delight it was to see the young anglers enjoying their experience of catching their fish and bonding with one another. Laughter filled the charter fishing boat.
I trolled from one wreck to the other – Fort Lauderdale has 34 artificial wrecks off the coast, ranging in depth from 60 ft. out to 520 ft. of water – from freighters to small crafts.
All in all, the anglers caught a total of six Kingfish, a couple of shorts, and four Bonitos. Mission accomplished with all the future generation anglers having had a good time
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.
