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

Bobby and Kaitlen Barnes chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team for a private deep sea charter boat sport fishing trip 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. 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 trolling to the south, and we caught a few Bonitas. Once we found the blue water with bait fish in 150 feet of water, we decided to live bait kite fish with 2 kites and sent out the first kite with two live Goggle Eyes. The second kite had a dead bait and a live bait. As soon as we got the baits in position, a Hammerhead Shark started eating the dead bait. We set the hook and had him on for a minute, and then the hook pulled out of his mouth. We reset the baits, and the Shark showed up again, circling around the baits. After a good show with his dorsal out of the water thrashing on the water, he finally tried us again, but this time the hook was set deep in his mouth and we had him on. The Shark gave a good fight, and after some time of fighting him, the angler got the Hammerhead Shark up along side the boat for a photo and got released.

We set back up with the same spread of baits. I looked out to the long bait and saw a dorsal fin and yelled down to the mate to get ready. It was a Sailfish, and he ate the Goggle Eye bait – hooked up! The Sailfish’s first run was heading towards the beach. He made some good jumps in the air pulling off lots of drag. After a good fight, we got him to the boat and released the Sailfish to fight another day.

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.

Tournament Dates & Information
03/25/19 01:34 AM
What a beautiful afternoon to be on the lake!! Warm temps, a little windy at times, but pretty nice all things considered. WE managed a couple of new folks to our tournaments and even though we only have one more to finish this season, I feel like they will probably come back next season!
Water temps were around 54 to 57 the places Stan and I fished and the water was slight stained for the most part. The lake was still 3' over summer pool when we started and dropped about 4-5" during the tournament (sure will be glad to see them get back on track!).
We had 24 paid entries, for a total of 40 anglers, Together, we weighed 54 bass (3 largemouths) for a total of 93.28lbs (an average of 1.73lbs per fish). here's how the money paid out:
5th place went to Jacob and Hunter with 3 fish for 6.07lbs for $36
4th place went to Mark S. with 3 fish for 6.11lbs and $54
3rd place went to Nick, Nick, and Robert with 3 fish for 6.44lbs and $72
2nd place was Kris Brown with 3 fish for 6.72lbs
1st place went to Joe C and partner (didn't get his name) with 3 fish for 8.82lbs and Big Bass with a largejaw for 4.99lbs. 1st place money was $108, Big Bass was $120 and the side pot was $250 WTG, guys!!

Next Sunday is our last Sunday Afternoon of the season so I hope to see a big turn out!! I can handle up to 49 entries so let's see if we can touch that number.

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

Jim Carroccia and his family chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team for a private deep sea charter boat sport fishing trip in Fort Lauderdale, FL. We had clear skies with pretty blue waters with some scattered weed.

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 and started the trip catching bait around an anchored ship in 150 of water. We caught a hand full of Bonita using jig lures. We then started trolling up the reef line trolling over wreck and rock structures. The first bite we got was right on top of a wreck, and we caught a Kingfish. We continued trolling and got double header bites. We fought those fish and got a full grown Bonita. I continued trolling north and caught another few Bonitas.

We decided to change things up and went into kite fishing. We put a kite up in the air with a couple of live baits and a bait down on the bottom. All of a sudden, I saw a black shadow underneath the live bait, and it was Sailfish. Jacob was our angler, and he started fighting the Sailfish. The Sailfish jumped out of the water, making big runs and came back up jumping again. After a great fight, we got the Sailfish up to the boat, removed the hooks, got a photo and released the Sailfish. We went back to trolling and picked up another few Bonitas.

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.
