A Great Week

Capt. Vinnie Sacks
August 1, 2019
Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

This week on the YB Normal out of Fort Lauderdale Florida we had a great week of fishing catching many different types of fish as well as customers from all over, fishing has been fairly good some days better then others but on the YB Normal we always find the fish, trolling with planners and bonito strips has given us some good luck with some great catches of kingfish as well as some very large barracudas some big enough to be considered a trophy fish, this week we did fish for a species of fish that we don't target often they are orange in color and are called black belly rose fish these fish are excellent to eat and they come from deep water over 800 feet so most of the time we use electric reels to catch these delicious fish, the meat is very white and flaky and taste excellent, we have been doing a fair amount of snapper fishing as well in the daytime as well as the night time, in the daytime we have been catching some nice sized mutton snappers on small live baits and pieces of cut bonito the shallow wrecks have been the best bet for those although they don't bite everyday most days we are catching mutton snapper if there is some current, mutton snapper are one of the prettiest snappers in my opinion having pink and green markings they also fight hard and taste great which makes them a great gamefish as well, night fishing for snapper has been very very good we are catching mostly yellowtail snapper and a few mangrove snapper, night tome fishing we anchor on shallow wrecks or reefs and chum heavily using light tackle to try and fool some of these wary fish, all snapper are great eating anyway you cook them, when snapper fishing in Fort Lauderdale we use anywhere from 12-15lb test line because snapper have very good eyesight and are not fooled easily specially bigger ones.
There also has been a fair amount of sharks being caught in the daytime sharks are a great sportfish as well as a trophy fish, all sharks must be released but if your looking for a big time fight a shark is a great way to go, anyways as far as the weather goes down in here in fort Lauderdale its pretty hot as usual and the ocean is calm, we are starting to approach our slower time of year for business but that doesn't mean that the fishing is slow, so if your in town and looking to get out the next few weeks should have plenty of availability.

If your ever in Fort Lauderdale and looking for a deep sea fishing charter Check out the YB Normal they got you covered from great crew and ice cold ac!
