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

Bill, Matt, David, Mike, Kirk and Dan decided to charter the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team to do some deep sea charter boat sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The guys were looking to have a fun day on the water and catch some fish.

I decided to head down to an area called the Hollywood pump which has treated water pumped out from the city of Hollywood. We started with our trolling spread from Dania Beach down to Hollywood with two deep plainer lines and three surface lines. We trolled the reef from 90' of water to 200' of water until we reached the Hollywood pump and worked the area going over and around the bubble.

There were plenty of live bait hanging around the up current side, and the Kingfish were showering the baits. Birds were diving and swooping down to catch the Ballyhoo having their own feeding frenzy. We changed over from our trolling spread to the live bait kite spread. I sent one right and one left kite a few hundred feet behind the boat with 4 live Goggle Eye baits (2 per kite) along with one deep bottom rod with a dead bait. We watched the Ballyhoo get hit on all angles from the Kingfish in the area and patiently waited for our bite. We did have a few nice Kingfish explode on our bait, but the three got away.

All of a sudden a Sailfish came up to the short kite bait, he fed and got hooked up. The Sailfish started jumping out of the water. He made a long run almost spooling the reel. Our first angler reeled like crazy to retrieve the line. All the guys had a turn angling the Sailfish and the 6th angler brought the Sailfish to the side of the boat. We brought the Sailfish into the boat, removed the hooks, got a photo and put the Sailfish back in the water to live another day.

Next we went back to trolling the reef catching two Kingfish. The fish were about 10 pounds each, and they both ate the deep plainer lines.

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.
