Great Fishing And Great Weather In Fort Lauderdale

Capt. Vinnie Sacks
October 27, 2022
Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Hello everyone, Capt. Vinnie here, this week we have a great report with even greater weather so lets get started...This week deep sea fishing right off the coast of Fort Lauderdale has been very productive, to start I would say that bottom fishing still remains very strong right now lots of very nice sized vermillion and yellowed snapper we have been catching on deeper reefs and shipwrecks, also some very very large amberjack some of the ones we have been catching have been as big as 70lbs. While we have been fishing for snapper we have been putting a live bait on the bottom on a bigger rod just incase there is something big down there that is hungry and it has been paying off big time. The weather has been great light winds and temps around 75 degrees make great conditions for a nice day on the water. Besides bottom fishing for snapper and amberjack there has been some kingfish action and sailfish action while trolling in the early morning, I would say right now to catch the bigger sized kingfish live bait would be a very good choice and while using live bait that would open up the chances at possibly a sailfish or a mahi mahi. The sailfish action should start to pick up as we approach the winter time months. There has been some very good sized mahi mahi as of late right off the coast of fort Lauderdale, even though the season has passed on these guys and there more of a summer time fish there are still what we like to call straggler fish around feeding on schools of live bait, some of the mahi we have been catching have been around the 15 to 20lb mark an awesome fish to catch and not to mention eat as well. On the offshore side of things there are a few tuna around but seems the afternoon time has been best for them trolling small feathers fished way behind the boat is always a good choice. One fishery that is picking up very very fast right now is sword fishing not the easiest fish to catch in the sea but right now they have been biting very well and this would be a great time to get out there and target a bucket list fish if that is what your after. This week we have some great pictures of some recent catches caught during our deep sea fishing charters right here in Fort Lauderdale so be sure to check those out. Also remember to give us a follow on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram @Ybnormalsportfishing for daily fishing content. If you are coming to Fort Lauderdale and looking to do some deep sea fishing now is a great time to do so, please check us out we would love to have you. Lots of fishing in the next few days so should have a very valid report soon so be on the look out. more later... Capt. Vinnie 954 559 4700
