April and Ben Broke from Louisiana and Jim Sung from NY shared a split party and chartered the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Jim is an avid fisherman and loves to fish. Winds were out of the southeast at 10 mph and seas running 3-4 ft., temperatures in the high 80’s.

The last couple of days we have been catching a Wahoo per day, so I headed out to the same area where we have been catching them. In this area there are numerous artificial reefs with one of them being a 520 ft. freighter. These artificial reefs hold the bait fish and in return the predators are not too far away. We put two plainers down, one with a 3 ½ blue reflector drone spoon and the other with a black and purple sea witch in front of a double hooked Mullet stip. For surface baits we went with two Ballyhoos and two Bonito strips.
As we trolled around picking away at Tunas and Bonitos, finally the plainer rod bent over with the rod tip bounding up and down – I knew that was him. Jim was our angler and reeled in a nice Wahoo weighing 18 lbs. Throughout the trip all three anglers took turns catching fish and ended up with two Barracudas, two Bonitos, eight Tunas, and the one Wahoo.
It was time to head back to the dock at Bahia Mar, 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316. All anglers relaxed in the a/c salon for the trip back.
