Thinking Outside The Box In Fort Lauderdale

Capt. Vinnie Sacks

Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Hello everyone Capt. Vinnie here, I'm going to jump right into the report this week but first this week seems we have had almost winter time conditions fairly choppy seas and windy days pretty unusual conditions for July here in fort lauderdale, normally this time of year you could expect clear skies and flat calm oceans with little no no breeze. Starting off with the inshore report there has been so much seaweed as of late to the point that its pretty much unfishable, im not sure what brings the seaweed or where it comes from but this last week is probably the worst I have ever seen it In Fort Lauderdale. On days that there isn't much seaweed and it is fishable we have been catching a some larger barracuda as well as some bonito and a few kingfish, trolling with planers to take baits under the surface has been the best way to get a few bites. Bottom fishing remains the hot ticket this week fishing depths from 100 feet on the shallow side to depths out to 200 on the deeper side is where we have been catching most of our snapper and a few grouper, small rock piles or pieces of structure have been holding lots of mutton snappers, fishing a long leader as long as 50 feet with a live pilchard has been the best way to target these guys, mutton snapper are very cautious fish and a long leader is key to take your bait away from your sinker to make it look natural. Anchoring up on the reef has been good as of late for yellowtail snappers any good piece of structure in depths of 40 to 70 feet of water has been holding some nice sized yellowtail. Moving on the offshore side of things there has been a good amount of blackfin tuna from depths deeper then 200 feet smaller size lures like feathers and squid skirts with mylar has been a very good option for these guys. Also as of late there has been a amount of sharks around if catching something large is what your looking for shark fishing is always a good alternative. Be sure to check out some of the pictures from this weeks great catches during our deep sea fishing charters and remember to follow us on social media platforms like facebook and instagram @Ybnormalsportfishing for daily fishing content. Even though the seaweed has been bad we still give it our all and have the modo "Whatever is takes" to give you a great trip.
