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


Liz Franco, Landriel Trotter, Jordan Trotter, Calvin Trotter and Erika Coates chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team to do some deep sea charter boat sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

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 the morning trolling in 150 feet of water with our best spread of 4 surface lines, which included three Ballyhoos and one surface chugger bait and two deep plainer lines with Bonita strips.

We started getting bites around the sea buoy. We had a fast (3.8 knots) north current, and as we started trolling to the north of Fort Lauderdale, we stopped getting bites. So, I started heading back to the south of Fort Lauderdale at a slower speed, and we started getting bites. What also worked was heading from shallow water to deeper water diagonally and then back to shallow water again. This works especially good when we are working a group of fish.

We started catching Kingfish with the average Kingfish weighing 8 to 9 pounds. We also hooked into Bonitos weighing about the same and some Tunas.

The next thing we decided to do was head offshore and target Mahi Mahi’s. We headed out to 900 feet of water, which is roughly 6 miles offshore. As soon as we got out there, we found the weed patches and found the Mahi’s. The majority of the Mahi’s were “schoolies” but still a lot of fun to catch. We were working the weed patches and the birds and continued to catching Mahi’s.

With an hour left, we tried fishing for a Shark. With a bloody fish head for bait on the surface and a bloody fish head on the bottom, we gave it a good shot, but, unfortunately, we did not get a Shark bite.

With a total of 9 Kingfish, two Bonitos, two Tunas and 8 Mahi’s, 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, Joe, our mate, filet out the fish for the anglers to take home
