Fishing Is Heating Up In Fort Lauderdale

Capt. Vinnie Sacks

Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Hello everyone, Capt. Vinnie here this weeks report is the one we have been waiting for seems that the fishing has broke for the better and I can't wait to tell you about it so here it goes. This week we have experienced the coldest days of the entire year temps as cold as 30 degrees now for us in Florida that basically means too cold to even go outside but for our customers from the north they think it is beautiful outside and I look at them crazy anyways this weather we received this week was the cold front we needed in order to get the fish moving our way. Starting on the reef whe have been anchoring up on our deep sea fishing trips and chumming the waters heavy catching a variety of different fish from yellowtail snapper to grouper to mackeral, anchoring up on the reef has been very productive way to catch fish when its slow. The depths around 80 feet which is just on the edge of the drop off has been best for us, pretty much all of the species of fish we have been catching on the reef while anchored are good eating too which is always a plus if your looking for a great fish dinner, Moving a little further offshore sailfish have shown up fairly well but in the 100 foot depth on out to 200 feet like I always say kite fishing is the preferred method if your looking for a sailfish and live bait is major key. Trolling in deep depths has been somewhat slow but there has been quality fish around like nice sized wahoo and a few bigger blackfin tuna, fishing planners with seawitches and bonito strips is the best bet. Last but not least the deeper bottom fishing and when I say deeper I mean from 400 feet out to 800 feet has been very very good, golden tilefish have been biting very well these are in my opinion one of the tastiest fish in the ocean and remind me of eating lobster very very delicious. Also vermillion snapper and yellow eye snapper have been biting very well on the deeper bottom spots and have been on the bigger size of 2 to 4lbs always great when they are biting alot of fun to catch and very tasty to, to end it off the rose fish in the depths of 800 feet have been biting very very well to and another delicious treat of the deep. Seems like this week the fishing is picking up for the better, its a great start and makes the next few weeks something to look forward to, it should get better and better as we approach spring. Make sure this week to check out our great photos of some recent catches aboard our deep sea fishing charters.
