John Litt, a well-versed fisherman, from Christie Digital, a multinational company, along with his guests chartered the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea big game sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Today winds were out of the south at 3-8 mph, seas running 1-2 ft., temperatures in the high 80’s.

Fifteen minutes after leaving the dock lines were in 120 ft. of water at the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale, 1.8 miles from shore. Captain Budalich and mate, Matt, started off the fishing trip with two plainers down and four surface baits.
As he trolled around some of our 34 artificial wrecks here in Fort Lauderdale, the anglers caught a variety of fish: Barracudas, Kingfish, Bonitos, Tunas and a Wahoo.
The Wahoo was caught over one of the artificial wrecks in 190 ft. of water in Fort Lauderdale. As the plainer rod bent over with the line exiting at a fast rate and the rod bouncing up and down, it was a good indication that a Wahoo was at the end of the line. John hopped into the fighting chair and the tug of war began with the line going in and out of the reel numerous times; the fight lasted twenty minutes. Finally the deep blue and silver stripped torpedo made his appearance as our mate wired him, gaffed the fish and put it into the boat. The razor sharp teeth of the Wahoo kept snapping looking for something to set his teeth in. The Wahoo measured out to be 71” and weighed 70 lbs.
With plenty of eating fish, it was time to head back to the dock – the anglers relaxed in the a/c salon to chill down for the trip back to the dock at Bahia Mar 801 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 33316.
