Spring Fishing Taking Effect In Fort Lauderdale

Capt. Vinnie Sacks
March 6, 2024
Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Hello everyone Capt. Vinnie here, this week I would say is defiantly an improvement in the fishing over last week just like the title says spring fishing taking effect in Fort Lauderdale. We are starting to get a taste of that obviously it is fishing and far from any guarantees but the chances of catching quality fishing are improving daily. As of late spending most of our time on the reef there has been some quality blackfin tunas biting while trolling early mornings and late evenings are always going to be your best windows for bites. Small lures fished on the surface as well as mylar lures fished under neath the surface have been producing some of these blackfin tunas. Also we are starting to see some kingfish action on the troll as well which is a staple during spring time fishing. Trolling will get you more bites but live bait will produce quality bites, pick your poison. There has also been a small flurry of some mahi mahi action and some quality ones at that. Days when the wind tends to blow from and easterly direction for a few days and the waves build there has been some quality mahi on the reef, these mahi are not picky but its more of getting in front of one to get the bites, it is a nice little bonus. Bottom fishing this week has been hit and miss some days when the conditions are correct there has been some nice sized vermillion snappers along with some quality grey trigger fish, but on days that the conditions don't line up it has been a waste of time. One thing I would like to point out is that we did have a daytime swordfish charter this week and we did catch one not a monster but a nice fish indeed (pictured). Swordfish is one of the hardest fish to catch here in Fort Lauderdale and FAR from a guarantee catch but the reward is so great if you do catch one. Now is a great time if your looking for that once in a lifetime swordfish. This week please be sure to check out some of the great photos we have of some recent catches caught this week while out on our deep sea fishing charters and also give us a like and follow on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram @Ybnormalsportfishing for daily fishing updates and you can see what we are doing from day to day. Fishing will continue to improve as we reach the end of March and even into April. Alot to look forward to, but one thing is for sure if your coming down to Fort Lauderdale and looking to do some deep sea fishing we have plenty of options that suits everyone so look us up and we will show you a great time on the water!
