Hot Temps And Hot Fishing In Fort Lauderdale

Capt. Vinnie Sacks
May 14, 2022
Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Hello everyone Capt. Vinnie here, I know its been a little while since my last report been busy fishing daily which is a good thing but I do like typing the reports to let you guys know whats going on in the waters right out Fort Lauderdale. As of late temps have been very hot and humid in Fort Lauderdale nothing like waking up at 6am everyday and loading up the boat before the customers arrive and already sweating, its hot thats for sure!! Fishing on the other hand is hot too lots of species biting right now morning and afternoon. Early mornings have been very productive trolling the edge of the reef in search of kingfish, bonito, and tuna. Our standard spread of planners down and surface baits has been productive and producing some nice sized king Macks, the best depths from 75 to 180 feet of water have had consistent action. Seems early in the mornings the fish are shallower and as the sun heats up the ocean the fish move deeper throughout the day. Inshore has been productive on kingfish and bonito early morning and late afternoon. Wreck fishing with live bait and heavy tackle has been very good lately as well large amberjack have began to make there ways on some of the deeper shipwrecks right off the coast of Fort Lauderdale, although we don't generally keep amberjack they are so so to eat but they fight and fight like no tomorrow they have the nick name reef donkey for a reason. While wreck fishing there is always a chance at a larger snapper or grouper as well as an occasional cobia. Moving a litter deeper to our offshore fishing we have been getting some nicer sized tuna on the troll. This week we did catch a yellow fin tuna which is excellent eating but somewhat rare for our area and still a great catch, Wahoo this week haven't been prevalent like I said a few reports ago the month of may and summer months are not great times for wahoo although they are fish we do catch year round winter months seem more productive for them. Fishing this week has been very very good one thing to look forward to is mahi mahi coming soon they are one of my favorite fish to catch here in fort Lauderdale and they should be making there way in the next few weeks so be ready for that to look forward to. Lots of great pictures this week to of some great catches caught during our deep sea fishing charters so be sure to check those out as well. Also remember to follow us on social media platforms like facebook and instagram @Ybnormalsportfishing for daily fishing content. Fishing should remain hot for another few months so if you were ever thinking of ever coming to Fort Lauderdale to do some deep sea fishing now is a great time to do so. Capt. Vinnie 954 559 4700
