Fort Lauderdale Fishing Is On Fire

Capt. Vinnie Sacks
May 24, 2023
Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Hello everyone Capt. Vinnie here, what a great week of deep sea fishing right in Fort Lauderdale that we have had, some of the best weather we have seen in a long time and not to mention the fish are biting! To start the report off we will stay on the inshore because thats where most of the action has been, right on the reef there has been solid kingfish action with some bonitos mixed in just about daily, the only thing that has been a pain as of late is the seaweed, some days the seaweed is so bad its been very difficult to fish and other days there has been none. Trolling has been a great way to target the kingfish as well as the bonitos but live bait has been working very well right now in order to get some of the larger kings. There has also been some very very large blackfin tuna on the edge of the reef that we have been catching while slow trolling live baits, some of the tunas have been as big as 30lbs. This week we had some great weather and favorable conditions for bottom fishing we have been anchoring up on the deeper side of the reef catching some quality yellowtail snappers. Light tackle and small baits has been the best combo, while on the anchor we also have been putting out some live baits on the surface and there has been quite a bit of sailfish around right now as well, and the occasional mahi mahi in on the reefs chasing live baits. Moving a little off the reef to the deeper water there has been quite a bit of shark activity. Big game sharks are still around and plentiful right now, hammerhead, sandbar, bull sharks, and tiger sharks just to name a few. All sharks are catch and release only but if your looking for a fight they will give it to you. On the offshore side of things mahi is the hot topic that seems to always be coming up but unfortunately it is to early to go out there and search for the fish so nice they named it twice I would imagine that they will start to pick up as we reach the summer months like June and July so that is something to look forward to in future reports. All in all the fishing as of late has been great right here in Fort Lauderdale, so many options of different things to fish for. This week be sure to check out some of the great photos we have of some recent catches caught aboard our deep sea fishing trips, and also remember to give us a follow on social media platforms for daily fishing content like facebook and instagram @Ybnormalsportfishing. Very busy week coming up but we do still have some availability if your coming to Fort Lauderdale and looking to do some deep sea fishing look us up we would love to show you a great time on the water... more later...
