Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report
Fishing Fort Lauderdale with Topshotfishing and Capt. Zsak
Father and son, Michael and Michael Fiorino, Jr., stripe bass anglers from New Jersey, chartered the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea big game sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Winds were out of the east at 5 mph with blue skies and temperatures in the high 80's.
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. Due to our extreme drop off, if you venture off another ¼ of a mile you would be in 500 ft. of water. With 34 artificial wrecks in Fort Lauderdale ranging from 65 ft. out to 535 ft, the bait fish congregate around the wrecks and in return the predators are not too far behind.
We started off trolling the reefs with two plainers down and four surface baits. Our first strike was on the plainer rod with a 3 ½ blue reflector drone spoon. Mike Jr. reeled the first fish which was an 8 lb. Kingfish. His father was next and caught a 10 lb. Bonito. They took turns rotating back and forth and videoing their catch. The total catch was 11 Bonitos and five Kingfish.
Father and son retired into the a/c salon with the TV on and enjoyed the relaxing trip back to the dock at Bahia Bar located at 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316.
