YB Normal is docked in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, ready and waiting to take groups out for a great day on the water. Captain Vinnie offers a range of trips, with four to eight-hour packages and the choice of coming as a group or jumping aboard a shared charter. With this many options, there is no excuse not to go fishing!

The YB Normal is a 43’ Torres sportfishing boat which has seen regular maintenance since the day she was built and makes for the perfect place for groups of six anglers enjoy a great day’s fishing. She has a comfortable, air-conditioned interior with a bathroom, galley, and plenty of space to relax in between bites.

She is also loaded with a literal boatload of equipment and tech to make sure you get some great catches. The latest electronics from Garmin and Furuno will sound out the deep and have you always fishing in the right spot. Outriggers and downriggers will maximize your spread and target species, and a fighting chair will let you hold your own against whatever you hook.

What you target will depend on the trip you choose. Half day charters will mainly drift and bottom fish around local reefs, targeting bottom species as well as a few fast-moving fish like King Mackerel and Bonito. Full and ¾ days can have you targeting anything from Tilefish to Sailfish, depending on what you want to get out of your trip.

Want to beat the heat and get some awesome catches while you do so? Book in for a nighttime Snapper charter, anchoring over local reefs as the sun goes down to target the big Yellowtail, Mangrove, and Mutton Snapper which come out after dark.

Whatever you do, you are in for a great time, with an experienced captain, quality equipment, and a whole ocean of awesome fish just waiting for someone to drop a hook in front of them. It might as well be you, right?

Captain Vinnie operates the YB Normal out of Fort Lauderdale, FL, and has worked aboard other boats in the area all his life. He loves being out on the water and getting groups on awesome fish. His favorite fish to catch is Black Grouper, but a huge part of what makes fishing so fun for him is never knowing what is going to bite next. This is what makes bottom fishing so fun for him - you can never tell what will take your bait!

June Deep Sea Fishing In Fort Lauderdale
June Deep Sea Fishing In Fort Lauderdale
Junio 20, 2021
Hello everyone Capt. Vinnie here this weeks report we are going to start out on the reef where the action has been very hot!! The kingfish have shown up and are hungry early morning has been best for them as of late, the fish have been averaging anywhere from 10-25lbs. Trolling has been the most productive way to catch them fresh bonito strips have been major key to enticing the kingfish to bite. Also while fishing the reef we have been catching plenty of bonito as well as a few blackfin tuna and wahoo when venturing a little bit deeper. There also has been quite a bit of sailfish still around during the summer which is somewhat unusual but also a great sight to see a sailfish jumping on the end of your line. As far as an offshore report for species like mahi mahi it has been very very hit and miss, if you can find something floating like debris you will most likely get lucky and have a great catch of mahi, also finding birds offshore is major key in having success offshore right now, a lot of the mahi are on the smaller size still but anyway we should see some bigger fish start to move through. bottom fishing has been somewhat slow as well for snapper and grouper we should see it begin to improve as we move later into the month of July, All in all lots of action on most trips and the weather has been excellent most days have been flat calm and somewhat overcast which always makes for a great deep sea fishing charter. This week I have some great photos of some recent catches on our deep sea fishing charters, one of the photos is of some beautiful sushi one of our recent customers homemade with some blackfin tuna they caught fishing with us. This week we have some availability if you in the Fort Lauderdale area and looking to get out fishing, please follow us on social media platforms like instagram and facebook @Ybnormalsportfishing for daily fishing photos and reports.

Good Start To June In Fort Lauderdale
Good Start To June In Fort Lauderdale
Junio 9, 2021
Hello Everyone Capt. Vinnie here, this weeks report is a good one to start out our summer fishing in Fort Lauderdale so lets get to it, as of late there has been some steady action both inshore and offshore in Fort Lauderdale, lets start off on the reef we have been having much success while trolling the reef in search of king mackeral which have been plentiful a well as bonito, morning charters have been best for them as of late as well as trolling in depths from 90-160 feet just on the drop off. There has been some blackfin tuna as well in the deeper waters like 200-300 feet later afternoon has been best for them and the smaller size fish have been being caught on trolled feathers where as the bigger blackfin Ttuna close to 20lbs are still around and they are a fan of live bait fished from a kite like sailfish do, like I said later afternoons have been best for them as well as any day with overcast conditions, As we venture further offshore there has been some mahi mahi or dolphin moving through in depths around 800 feet I have been catching them somewhat regularly when I venture out there but you need to find something to fish to like birds or debris, most of the fish I caught this week were on frigate birds which eventually lead me to a weed line or some sort of floating object, this time of year when venturing off the coast of fort Lauderdale. in search of mahi mahi live bait is key to success if you find a school of dolphin, mahi are very aggressive and the live bait with produce an almost immediate strike, the live bait of choice would be a smaller baitfish called a pilchard. This week also we have been catching some nice wahoo one of my favorite to eat we have been catching them on some of the debris floating by while fishing a planner with a bonito strip always a lucky catch when getting them that way. As far as bottom fishing goes this week it has been somewhat slow most days there has been very very fast current which has made it very tough to fish certain spots, but on the days the current is light we have been catching some vermillion and yelloweye snapper both great eating. Plenty of great pictures this of some recent catches this week so make sure to check those out. We do have some availability for the month of June left so if your coming down to fort Lauderdale make sure to check us out the fishing is heating up... As always be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on instagram @Ybnormalsportfishng for daily fishing reports and photos. Tight lines Capt. Vinnie More later....
Ending The Month With A Bang
Ending The Month With A Bang
Mayo 31, 2021
Hello everyone, Capt. Vinnie here great report this week for you guys I know I haven't given you guys one recently because we have been very busy but here is a great one to wrap up the month of may. As of late the fishing in Fort Lauderdale has been sporadic some days better then others, some days so good you dont even want to come in when time is up and other days seems like a struggle to catch a few fish, but thats fishing and thats what keeps us coming back! This week has been one of those weeks with some epic days of fishing some of the best I have seen this year, starting off trolling the reef kingfish have been hard to come by as well as bonito not to many around right now but they should be biting fairly steady in the next coming weeks, when the conditions have been right there has been a fair amount of wahoo around due to the moon cycle and very clean water and heavy currents seems to concentrate them best off the coast of Fort Lauderdale, trolling is the primary way to catch them while on a deep sea fishing charter, seawitches with bonito strips are the go to followed by a blue spoon, wahoo like faster moving baits so trolling a bit quicker. then normal is a great way to get there attention, focusing on the depths of water from 200-400 feet is best also trolling over ship wrecks that are located off the coast of Fort Lauderdale is a good Idea as well. While fishing for wahoo, tuna is a great by catch, larger sized blackfin tuna have been off the coast of fort Lauderdale the last few days, tuna are great fighting fish as well as excellent on the table served raw or grilled you can't go wrong. Just on the deeper side of the reef there has been a few summer time sailfish biting, fishing with live bait under a kite has been best live goggle eyes would be the bait of choice, sailfish is a great gamefish and fun to catch with there speed and acrobatics. A further offshore report: mahi have been some what plentiful this week on our longer deep sea fishing charters we have been making a run around 8 miles offshore for mahi it is a little early in the season for them but if you can find something to fish to like birds or debris most likely the mahi are not far behind. This week I have some great photos of some recent catches including 2 giant wahoo we recently caught on our deep sea fishing charters so please be sure to check those out, another busy week this week but there is some availably for the month of June so if your thinking of getting out on the water June is a great time, as always please be sure to follow us on facebook and instagram @Ybnormalsportfishing for daily fishing videos and repots...
