March Madness In Fort Lauderdale

Capt. Vinnie Sacks
March 23, 2024
Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Hello everyone, Capt. Vinnie here with a great fishing report for you guys this week. The weather has been in our favor this week specially for some deep sea fishing. Starting off the morning trips have been seeing some great action on the troll for blackfin tuna. Trolling the depths from 180 on out to 300 feet has been the most productive as of late and lures in a greenish color have been getting the most bites. Some of the tuna we have been getting have been over 20lbs, which is just great! no complaints here. Also in the early mornings there has been a very good showing of mahi mahi right now which is somewhat odd for this time of year they are more of a summer time fish but I won't say no if they are biting thats for sure. The mahi have been biting in depths from 300 on out to 500 feet, the best action has been on color changes from green water to blue water as well as scattered weeds and the best action would be if your lucky enough to hit the jackpot and find something floating like pieces of wood or floating ropes. Other then mahi and tuna we have been seeing some wahoo action as well. Some of the wahoo that are being caught have been early in the mornings primarily over structure like sunken ship wrecks. Afternoon trips have been producing a solid bite of blackfin tuna the later the better it has been slow from around 1 to 3pm but once 4pm approaches that seems to be when the tuna have been starting to bite. Tuna have big eyes and are sensitive to light so low light conditions are always going to be best if your looking to catch tuna. On a final note bottom fishing for vermillion snappers has been somewhat decent when the current allows for it also if your have live bait most deeper wrecks are holding some very large amberjacks right now too. This week please be sure to check out some of the great photos of some recent catches caught while out on our deep sea fishing charters and remember to give us a like and follow on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram @Ybnormalsportfishing for daily fishing content. For this week coming up looks like some windy weather for the beginning of the week and then the wind lightens up towards the end of the week, spring fishing is definitely in full effect, tunas, mahi, the occasional wahoo, and bottom fishing heating up I can't think of a better time to get out fishing in Fort Lauderdale, so if your coming down to south florida and looking to do some deep sea fishing please look us up we would love to show you a great time on the water. Busy week ahead here so be on the look out for future reports. more later....
