Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

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

Jonathan and Carrie Taylor from Charlotte, NC, were here in Fort Lauderdale celebrating Jonathan's birthday. As part of their celebration, Carrie chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing Charter Boat team to do some deep sea big game sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at Bahia Mar Yachting Center, 801 Seabreeze Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316. Jonathan, a boat owner and avid fisherman who owns Lanterra Construction in Charlotte, was impressed with the short distance to our fishing grounds, which is 1.8 miles to the drop off (120 ft.) compared to his 30-mile run in NC to the same depth of water.

Fifteen minutes after leaving the dock, lines were in 120 ft. of water by the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale, 1.8 miles from shore. We started out trolling with two #8 plainers, one with a pink and blue sea witch and the other with a blue and white sea witch in front of double hooked Bonito strip. For surface baits, we went with four Bonito strips. We trolled the reefs, zig zagging in and out from 80 ft. out to 140 ft. of water, crossing over some of our 34 artificial wrecks here in Fort Lauderdale. The anglers took turns doubling up on their his and hers catches.

From there we set out two kites with two live Goggle Eyes from each kite - this was the first time Jonathan experienced kite fishing and was amazed by the technique.

With a total of 8 Kingfish ranging from 8 to 14 lbs., 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 Mar Yachting Center, 801 Seabreeze Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316, while watching the plasma TV.
