Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

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

Tony, Bill, Rick, Ryan, Neil and George, a group of guys from the Boston area, were down in Fort Lauderdale and decided to charter the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team to do some deep sea charter boat sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. We had nice temperature today, in the mid 70's, and easterly winds blowing 15 mph. The seas were choppy at 3 to 4 feet.

We started the trip with kite fishing in 150 ft. of water, 1.8 miles from shore north of Fort Lauderdale. We put out two kites with two live Goggle Eyes from each kite. The first couple of baits in the water got attacked right away - within the first 5 minutes - catching one Kingfish and missing another one. We reset our spread of baits back out only to have another couple of Kingfish tear through the spread, cutting our Goggle Eye baits in half with their razor sharp teeth.

We moved out a little deeper to avoid the Kingfish attack, and after some time, we caught a Mahi Mahi, followed by a nice big Barracuda, which gave us a good fight.

With little to no time left in the trip, the dead bait we had put out close to the bottom got hit, and the rod bent over so hard it almost touched the water line. We were hooked up to a real nice Shark. The Shark ripped off a ton of line as he headed offshore. We hooked up the Shark in 350 feet of water, and after an hour fight, it took us out to 500 feet of water. All the guys in the group took turns fighting this Shark until we got him to the side of the boat. The Shark turned out to be a 10 ft. Big Eye Thresher. Pictures were taken and the Shark was released.

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.
