The Fish Are Biting

Trip Summary

Capt. Vinnie here, this weeks report is great with some of the best eating fish that we catch here in Fort Lauderdale, lets start out with a good mahi mahi bite that has been going on as of late we recently had a nice catch of mahi as well as kingfish and some tuna to, we found a floating tree and casted some small lives baits towards it and was able to catch 7 nice mahi mahi, we have been catching some kingfish as well on the reef with planners as well as tuna. The tuna have been biting best using small squid skirt lures fished far behind the boat and have been averaging between the sizes of 6-10lbs. This week was a full moon so there is always a good chance to catch a wahoo and that we did. Wahoo is one of my favorite fish to catch and eat they have great colors and are great fighters, we catch most of these fish under the surface fishing planers with seawitches and bonito strips. On one of our trips this week we did a fair share of bottom fishing and we caught some beautiful snowy groupers as well as some golden tilefish and rosefish some of the best eatting from the bottom there is. This week we had some great fish that were caught as well as great customers as well which is always a recipe for success. We should see some more mahi approaching this month so be on the look out for those in the next few reports. I do finally have a night time report for you guys we were able to get out one time this week due to the weather conditions, we had a great night with 4 customers and we were able to limit out on snapper in under 2 hours, now thats a great bite, we did best fishing the deeper reefs in the Fort Lauderdale area, chumming heavy as well as fishing with small cut pieces of fish are the best way to catch yellowtail snapper quickly and like I always say night fishing is a great way to beat the heat. Great report this week check out our photos as well for day to day action follow us on instagram @Ybnormalsportfishing. Tight lines and more later... Capt. Vinnie

Hello everyone Capt. Vinnie here, decent report this week although not many days to get out there and fish due to the weather but I do have a report and some nice photos, lets get right into it! This week has been a windy one and rainy with heavy North East winds and rain but we did have a few days we could get out and get some fishing in, there has been some very nice mahi mahi around chasing bait in the shallow part of the reef, averaging from 10-20lbs, we have a great photo this week of a beautiful bull mahi we caught on a live ballyhoo in 40 feet of water just off the coast of Fort Lauderdale. On the troll this week there has been kingfish biting in depths from 90-120 feet on seawitches and bonito strips as well as small spoons, also a few tuna out in the deeper waters as well. Sailfish should be in full force very shortly after this cold front that we have going on right now. We did do a little bit of wreck fishing this week with great success, we caught a very nice amber jack this week on a live bait fishing a ship wreck right off the coast of fort Lauderdale, there is also a nice photo as well, this week we did some deep jigging on a sunken ship wreck and caught a nice red grouper too. Night fishing report I do not have due to the wind and weather but I hope to have one soon the snappers should be biting. We have some availability this week and next so please come out fishing with us, its a great way to get out of the house and have some fun.

Hello everyone, Capt. Vinnie here this week we have not had the best weather so I don't have that much to report but I do have some great photos from a trip that we were able to squeeze in this week, this deep sea fishing trip was a slow pitch jigging charter, slow pitch jigging is a type of jigging technique that is becoming very popular right now in America and it is definitely a fun way to fish, using strictly jigs no bait catching some excellent eating fish is what its all about, on this trip we caught some of the best eating fish in our waters off of fort Lauderdale, we started out fishing deep for some golden tilefish which we got our limit very shortly one of my favorite type of fish to catch they live in depths from 700-900 feet, also while out in the deep we caught a giant squid which is a very rare catch on a lure I was even amazed which doesn't happen as often as you may think. We continued to work the depth in search of grey tilefish which are a smaller cousin of the golden tilefish but in my option taste just as good. We would catch a few tuna along the way while fishing the depths and to end the day we would catch one of the rarest fish I think you can catch in the Fort Lauderdale are known as a yellowedge grouper, being a charter capt for many years I could count on one hand how many I have caught over the years, Also very delicious as well. The jigging trips are a cool way to catch fish out here and definitely another tool to our arsenal in order to produce fish. The weather this week is pretty bad as we have a tropical storm approaching for the next few days but seems it will calm down towards the middle of the week, we have availability this week so dont hesitate to miss out on some great fishing.
