Fort Lauderdale Fishing with Top Shot Sportfishing Charter Boat and Capt. Zsak
Chris and Christy Done, along with their son, Kevin, and friend Katherine Humpreys, all locals, chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing charter boat team to do some deep sea charter boat sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The family was looking for good fishing action, and that is what we set out to accomplish.
We left the marina, and once we got out past the jetties, I made a right and headed to the south of Fort Lauderdale, 1.8 miles from shore. We headed out to about four miles to the southeast of Fort Lauderdale, where there had been some decent fishing action the previous day, and started fishing. We put out our best spread of four surface lines, which included three Ballyhoos and one surface chugger bait and two deep plainer lines - one with a 3 inch blue spoon and the other with a sea witch in front of a double hooked Bonito strip.
As we started trolling the reef, we soon started getting action. The long plainer rod started pulling drag and fish was on. Kevin was our angler - he grabbed the rod and started reeling in a Kingfish. Kevin brought the Kingfish to the side of the boat – Joe, our mate, wired 80 feet of leader line, while reaching over and grabbing the gaff. He gaffed the Kingfish, pulled him into the boat and into the fish box. This action was repeated over and over for the rest of the trip.
With a total of 10 Kingfish, two Bonitos and two big Blue Runners, 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, Joe filet out the fish for the anglers to take home and enjoy for dinner.
