Trip Summary

Hello everyone...Capt. Vinnie here I hope everyone had a great holidays and New Years, fishing down in Fort Lauderdale has been very good and I would love to tell you about it so lets start the report. This week in Fort Lauderdale starting inshore there has been a fair amount of Spanish mackeral on the beach side, trolling down the beach with small lures in about 10 to 15 feet of water has been best, mackerel are a great fish for the dinner table but also are great fighters making super fast runs as well. Just on the edge of the reef there has been sailfish like I said last week sailfish bite should continue to improve more and more every week, kite fishing has been the preferred method of attack for these guys and live bait is a must. Most of the sailfish we have been catching right off the coast of Fort Lauderdale have been in depths from 100 to 200 feet of water. Also something that we have been starting to see alot of is sharks. There has been an abundance of hammer head sharks in the area. Sharks are great gamefish, we are not able to kill any of the sharks that we catch but if your looking for a fight this is most certainly a bucket list item for most people!! Moving offshore there has been a fair amount of blackfin tuna, days that seem to be overcast have been best for these guys, small spoons and seawitches with strip baits have been best fishing a little on the deeper side as well from 300 to 500 feet. The next species that comes to mind that has been biting fairly well is wahoo, we have been doing quite well recently on this species right off the coast of Fort Lauderdale. Wahoo is a predatory gamefish that is super fast and has very sharp teeth big baits like rigged ballyhoo as well as bigger strip baits and bonito strips have been best for these guys depths from 180 to 400 have been the ticket and early morning seems to be the most productive. This time of year whenever we tend to have a strong wind from an easterly direction there is usually mahi mahi, more of a sometime fish we do catch a few of them in the winter time. All in all lots of variety right now in Fort Lauderdale and a great time to go fishing also. Last but not least bottom fishing for snapper has been productive, deeper wrecks and ledges have been best with small pieces of cut baits working well, the primarily snapper species have been vermillion but we have been getting a few yellow eye, lane, and mutton snappers in the mix also. If your coming down to the fort Lauderdale area and looking to do some deep sea fishing we would love to have you. Be sure this week to check out some of our great photos of some recent catches during our deep sea fishing trips. as always remember to follow us on social media platforms like facebook and instagram @Ybnormalsportfishing for daily fishing videos and pictures.

A Good Start To July In Fort Lauderdale
A Good Start To July In Fort Lauderdale
Julio 1, 2022
Hello everyone Capt. Vinnie here, I have a nice report this week so lets get started. July is probably one of the hottest months in Fort Lauderdale temperature wise but it also has had some great fishing too. Starting off on the inshore side of things trolling is a great way to produce some bites and also some quality fish too, bonito have some what ruled the reef as of late pretty much eating everything in sight, they are great fighters but not very good on the dinner table, but all in all still a great fish to catch, there are still kingfish around and it seems smaller fish have been shallower and larger fish have been deeper as deep as 300 feet. Daytime bottom fishing has been somewhat good on days with light current, lots of nice sized vermillion snapper have been the catch as well as some nice sized porgy, Large amberjack are still around on deep ship wrecks too, live bait is a must for these guys as well as heavy tackle, if your looking for a fight amberjack are strong and will test you to see what your made off. Moving offshore, still a good amount of blackfin tuna but early mornings are best for them depths outside of 250 feet have been best, there is also been a few wahoo in the larger class 40lbs and bigger, we caught a large one this week "pictured" while trolling for kingfish, just goes to show you never know what you will get. Last but not least still plenty of big game sharks around if your looking to do some trophy hunting now is a great time. Lots of options still around in Fort Lauderdale of things to catch, July is always a great time to do some deep sea fishing, anyways be sure to check out some of our photos this week of some recent catches we had during our deep sea fishing charters and remember to follow us on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram @Ybnormalsportfishing for daily fishing content. Stay tuned for next weeks report I have a feeling it will be a good one. Capt. Vinnie more later....
Dog Days Of Summer In Fort Lauderdale
Dog Days Of Summer In Fort Lauderdale

Hello everyone Capt. Vinnie here this week in Fort Lauderdale we have had some hot fishing and some even hotter temps. Lets get to the report I have for you guys...This week in Fort Lauderdale like a stated earlier lots of hot temps but fishing remains pretty good right now, early mornings seem to be best right now getting an early start helps beat the heat as well as put a few fish in the box. Early mornings have been producing a fairly good amount of blackfin tuna, trolling in depths from 200 to 400 feet seem to be the magic depth for these guys also mixed in with the tuna there has been bonito, although bonito are not very good for eating they are hard fighters and have beautiful colors and they are fun to catch too. Always while fishing for tuna there is a chance for that lucky wahoo but seems to be they are hard to catch lately. Moving inshore a little bit there has been some kingfish on the deeper side of the reef as well as a few barracuda. Snapper fishing on the reef has been very productive lately with nice catches of yellowtail snapper. Anchoring up and chumming is a great way to target these guys and they are great on the dinner table. Snapper fishing is very dependent on the conditions at hand, current is a must in order to take your chum down the reef and create a feeding frenzy. Deeper snapper fishing for vermillion snapper has been very good as well and still lots of larger fish on wrecks like amberjack. If your looking for a fight thats always a great fish to try and target, live bait is a must for these guys. Last but not least there has been some large trophy game sharks around to catch, Sharks are a great way to test yourself as an angler and some of the ones we catch can reach sizes larger then 10 feet. I always say this time of year is my favorite time to fish so many options of things to catch and always flat calm the only downside Is the heat but I think the pluses out weight the minus so if your coming to Fort Lauderdale and looking to do some deep sea fishing come out with us we would love to have you. Be sure this week to check out our great photos of some recent catches we have had during our deep sea fishing charters, and as always follow us on social media platforms like instagram and facebook @Ybnormalsportfishing for daily fishing content. Till next time should have a new report soon. Capt. Vinnie more later...
Ups and Downs In Fort Lauderdale

Junio 12, 2022
Hello everyone, Capt. Vinnie here this weeks report is right on with whats going on in the Fort Lauderdale area so here we go... So this week fishing has been somewhat pretty good, some days are fairly easy to catch fish and other days you really have to work at it to make things happen. We recently just has a tropical storm come through the area and all the rain has hurt the fishing somewhat, there has been alot of freshwater out where we have been fishing and most pelagic fish do not like that one bit. Most of our bites have been on our deeper lines fished on planners, our surface baits haven't had much luck as of late due to the freshwater, but for the most part fishing has been good. Morning trips have had excellent weather flat calm ocean and light breeze. Afternoons on the other hand seems like your at the mercy of the thunderstorms, some days it never rains and other days we have hard rain and lots of lighting and thunder. Morning trips have been producing nice sized kingfish as well as some bonito and the occasional wahoo. Blackfin tuna have been very hit and miss as of late and I think that has alot to do with the freshwater around but we have had some very good days fishing for them and then we have had some days that are slower then others. As far as a mahi report there has been mahi mahi around but they are far offshore so you are going to need a longer trip to target them. Afternoons we have been doing a very good amount of bottom fishing and it has been good, vermillion snapper have been prevalent on alot of the deep bottom spots we fish off the coast of Fort Lauderdale, we have also been catching a few snowy groupers as well as an occasional red snapper and porgy, also in the afternoons that it doesn't rain seems the tunas are biting fairly well. All in all there is still lots of options of different fish to target and lots of things to catch, one thing that I'm looking forward to is mahi mahi which should be becoming very prevalent in the next few weeks so stay tuned for that. Be sure to check out some of the great pictures we have this week of some great catches during our deep sea fishing charters, also give us a follow on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram @Ybnormalsportfishing for daily fishing content. Pretty busy week ahead for us so should have another report soon. More later... Capt. Vinnie
