Fort Lauderdale Fishing with Top Shot Sportfishing Charter Boat and Capt. Zsak
Walter, Victor, Ryan and Andy were down from Buffalo, NY to do some sport fishing 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 started out the fishing trip targeting large fish and went right out to the deeper waters where the Sailfish and the Sharks have been traveling. We put out two kites with two live Goggle Eyes for baits from each kite as well as one deeper Shark bait. From there we went to the drop off, and put out three baits, two baits were for Sharks - one bait on the surface and one bait 200 ft. deep. Within an hour, a Shark came swimming around the surface bait and made a few turns searching for the bait. The Shark found the bait, ate it and the Shark was on. The Shark dumped a few hundred yards of line, screaming out drag. The angler battled the Shark for over an hour with some gains and losses before the Shark finally came close enough to grab the leader line - it was a 250 lb Hammerhead Shark. Pictures were taken and the Shark was released to fight another day.
Next, we came into shallower water and put out a full live bait spread with two Goggle Eye baits on the left and right kites. After an hour of keeping the baits in their positions, a White Marlin came up to the left short bait. He slashed at the bait a few times missing it until his final attempt, engulfing it. The White Marlin swam and fed for 60 seconds, then came up jumping out of the water a few times. Ryan was the angler - we strapped him into the fighting chair and he started fighting the White Marlin. Ryan had him on for 30 minutes but the White Marlin ended up breaking the leader. An exciting time was had on this fishing trip.
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.
