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

Jeff, JT, James and Tony, who are college friends down from Boston, chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team for a private deep sea charter boat sport fishing trip in Fort Lauderdale, FL The seas were 2 to 3 foot with easterly winds with a light chop.

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. If you venture off another ¼ of a mile, you would find yourself in 500 ft. of water, which we exclusively have here in Fort Lauderdale, due to Fort Lauderdale’s extreme drop off. The further north you go, the further the drop off swings off shore.

We started the morning catching baits called Bonita at an anchored ship. The ship was anchored in 150 feet of water, and these baits will school around the front and bottom of the hull, which gives them structure. We were using smaller jigs and catching them close to the side of the ship. All the anglers took turns catching the fish, and we ended up catching 10 of them.

Next, we decided to kite fish. We used two kites, a left and a right kite, with 4 live baits, using a release kite clip so that when a fish strikes the line will fall from the kite. We also put a bait on the bottom with a 1 pound lead, and we were using a king head targeting larger fish. Then a Sailfish came up to feed on the long bait, and I yelled down to the guys – Sailfish! The angler, Jeff, set the hook, started reeling the tight line in. The Sailfish jumped multiple times and made some big runs going deep and back to the surface. After a good battle, the Sailfish came up alongside the boat, we got a measure, snapped a photo, removed the hook then released the Sailfish back into the ocean to be caught another day. The Sailfish swam away good and was in a healthy condition.

It was now time to head back to the dock. The happy anglers retired into the a/c salon watching the plasma TV and enjoying the relaxing trip back to the dock at Bahia Bar Yachting Center, 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316.

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

Jim Cochrane and his son, John, from St. Augustine chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team for a private deep sea charter boat sport fishing trip in Fort Lauderdale, FL - Captain JB was at the helm.

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. If you venture off another ¼ of a mile, you would find yourself in 500 ft. of water, which we exclusively have here in Fort Lauderdale, due to Fort Lauderdale’s extreme drop off. The further north you go, the further the drop off swings off shore.

We started trolling the reef line drop off north of Fort Lauderdale searching for an area favorable to do live bait kite fishing. In our search, I stopped by one of our wrecks in 220 ft. of water and put down a live Goggle Eye for bait. In a short time, the rod bent over, and I went ahead with the boat to avoid the fish going into the wreck. After a twenty minute battle, John and Jim fought the fish, which was a 30 lb. Amberjack, and brought it to the side of the boat, where our mate, Russ, put the fish in the boat for picture taking, removed the hook and the Amberjack was released to fight again. We set up again on top of the wreck with the same set up and another Amberjack was caught and released.

There was a color change rip forming in 185 ft. of water north of Fort Lauderdale which looked very promising, so I put out two kites with live bait on each of the kites. Everybody was waiting for his appearance – black shadow – right long – bill and dorsal out of the water, as the Sailfish chased the live Goggle Eye bait around until he succeeded – hooked up. The Sailfish came out of the water exposing his beautiful neon colors. After a good battle, the anglers brought the Sailfish to the side of the boat for picture taking. The Sailfish was released to fight another day. Congratulations Jim and John for a job well done.

It was now time to head back to the dock. The happy anglers retired into the a/c salon watching the plasma TV and enjoying the relaxing trip back to the dock at Bahia Bar Yachting Center, 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316.

Inshore Fishing
03/13/19 11:43 PM
Girls beat the boys in Shell Beach. Saturday I ran a two boat trip with Capt. Gabe. We had a group of 10 and the boys hopped on my boat and the girls with Capt. Gabe. It started off pretty calm but the winds were going to be picking up so opted to stay in the marsh and it was a good thing we did as the winds picked up as the morning went on. Fishing with Campo’s shrimp under 4 Horsemen corks my guys filled up the box with reds, a few bass, 3 flounder, and 1 lone trout. As good as they did the girls did better. They had some bigger fish and limited out before us, but everyone had a blast, except fo the fish. Not good a day for them.

All fish in the Suzuki powered Blazer Bay 2400 were caught with Campo’s live shrimp on Capt. Rory's United Charters custom rods provided by CUI Products with Penn reels, spooled with Kast King line. All fish removed and boxed with the one and only Just Grab it Glove.

Spring is here and the fishing is heating up. Trout are starting to wake up from their winter slumber and the Bull Red and Sheepshead action at the rigs is flat out crazy. Book your spring and summer dates now while choice dates are still available. Call now to book your trip of a lifetime. Overnight accommodations on the bayou are available.
