Fishing Fort Lauderdale with Topshotfishing and Capt. Zsak

Steve Friedman along with his son, Ben, from Pinellas County, Florida chartered the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea big game sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale. This trip was Steve’s gift to his son for his 18th birthday. We had winds out of the east at 15 mph with seas running 3-6 ft., temperatures in the mid 80’s.

After leaving the dock at Bahia Mar in Fort Lauderdale, Captain Richard Budlich stopped in the inlet to purchase a dozen live Goggle Eyes from T&T Bait. From there, the plan was to go directly to kite fishing, and Ben’s target was a Sailfish. Fifteen minutes later lines were in 165 ft. of water north of the sea buoy located at Fort Lauderdale. With little current, it is good to always position yourself over a wreck or close to a structure that will hold live bait. We put out two kites with two live Goggle Eyes from each kite.

As Steve and Ben were bonding, the left long kite bait got attacked by a Mahi Mahi, and then another one appeared on the right long. Now the competition was on – father and son both reeling in Mahi Mahi’s as JJ, our mate, gaffed the Mahi Mahi’s and put them into the fish box. Captain Richard reset again and waited for the black shadow to appear. Right short!!! - as the dorsal fin and the bill of the Sailfish exited the water frantically trying to attack the Goggle Eye. Hooked Up!!! The Sailfish came out of the water and immediately threw the hook. From there the kites were reset and the anglers caught a couple of more Mahi Mahi’s, and then another black shadow appeared. This Sailfish was extremely aggressive – eating the live Goggle Eye – off he went – as he exited the water and put on a fantastic show. Ben hopped into the fighting chair to do battle with his birthday gift. Twenty minutes later, the Sailfish was captured, pictures were taken and the Sailfish was released to fight again

With 10 Mahi Mahi’s ranging from 5-15 lbs, one Sailfish and a happy 18 year old, the anglers retired into the a/c salon to relax on the ride back to the dock at Bahia Mar, 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316.
