August Fishing In Fort Lauderdale

Capt. Vinnie Sacks
August 22, 2021
Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Hello everyone Capt. Vinnie here, nice report this week with some great catches we had so lets get started. As of late this August had had some great fishing some weeks better then others but thats why its called fishing, we have had lots of variety this month as well from big game fish to snappers. This week one fish that has been somewhat prevalent and usually everyones favorite is the mahi mahi. Mahi have been offshore in numbers but like I always say you need to find something to fish to, we have been catching most of our mahi on diving birds, there has been lots of floating debris as well, All the mahi have been good size averaging around 7lbs. Staying offshore one fish that would be considered the pinnacle of all game fish is the broadbill swordfish, the bite has been on for them and last week we caught 2 of them during one of our offshore mahi charters. Swordfishing is one of the hardest forms of fishing and takes just as much luck as it does skill to get the bite, but always worth a shot to try if you are far offshore. Moving inshore on the reef there has been plenty of bonito as well as barracuda, kingfish have been around but should start to bite better as we approach September and October, tuna is also a species that has been somewhat plentiful but a little bit on the smaller side, Lots of variety this week like I talked about, last week we did a lot of bottom fishing this week more pelagic, which I think is pretty cool to show the large variety of species we can catch on deep sea fishing charters in Fort Lauderdale. Please make sure this week to check out the great pictures of some recent catches we had on our deep sea fishing charters, and as always remember to follow us on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram @Ybnormalsportfishing for daily fishing pictures and videos....
