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

Matt Gasparro from Phoenix, AZ was down in Fort Lauderdale on a business convention held by Cisco, along with Todd, Chris, Kim and Dave and decided to charter the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team to do some deep sea charter boat sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Fifteen/twenty minutes after leaving the dock, we were fishing by the sea buoy north of Fort Lauderdale, 1.8 miles from shore. We started off trolling with two plainers down, one with a pink and blue sea witch and the other with a blue and white sea witch, both had double hooked Bonito strips. For surface baits we went with two Mullet strips and two Bonito strips. As we trolled the reefs, ranging from 80 ft. out to 200 ft. of water, we got a couple of short Kingfish bites and caught a couple of Bonitos.

From there we decided to do some Shark fishing and headed out to 300 ft. of water. In the past few days, we have caught three Thresher Sharks out here, and now we were hoping to catch #4. We put out one surface, midrange and bottom Shark baits. It did not take too long before a dorsal fin popped up by the surface bait – hooked up. The Shark peeled off the line from the 80 International Reel. Matt was our angler and he jumped into the fighting to do battle. After a 45 minute battle, Mark, our mate, grabbed a hold of the leader and wired in the Hammerhead Shark. Pictures were taken, hooks were removed and the Shark was set free to fight again. Congratulations Matt on a job well done.

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, Matt filet the Mahi for the anglers to enjoy for tonight’s dinner.
