Some of the Ft. Lauderdale weather this week has not been to favorable for fishing but we happen to get out even those it was rough with some great repeat customers from New York, Tom and his wife they have fished with us for the last 5 years always chartering us for an all day charter no matter the weather, we left the dock 8am sharp with winds blowing 20-30mph out of the northeast, seas 5-8feet with some 10 foot waves mixed in but let me tell you the fishing was incredible, we started out with a little different spread then we normally fish due to the wind, we had 1 planner down with a seawitch and a bonito strip and we fished 4 surface baits consisting of chin weighted ballyhoo and seawitches, we had to fish the surface baits further back then normal due to the wind, we started off with a instant bite of a nice kingfish.
Continuing offshore in search for some mahi 2 of our surface lines went off with nice sized mahi 10-15lb fish really nice ones Tom and his wife fought the fish great in the sporty conditions and landed both fish, we would continue to head offshore in search of more mahi and we need up keeping Tom and his wife very busy catching tons of barracudas and really nice mahi as well as a skipjack tuna that had been bitten in half by something, towards the end of our trip we found a giant floating tree where we caught the biggest mahi of the day the weighted 24lbs a great fish and Toms biggest it was a great day of mahi fishing even the the seas where rough, Tom and his wife will be back next year to fish with the YB Normal once again.
Another trip that comes to mind was Monday where we had some more great customers that had fished with us a few years ago, we left 8am sharp and set up our normal spread of 2 planners down and 3 surface baits the weather was much better the the other day, we caught a kingfish right off the bat on one of our planners, then decided to head offshore in search of mahi, we did manage to find the mahi in 700 feet of water, we got 3 bites at one time and landed all 3 fish, as well as catching a baby wahoo on one of our planner baits, as well as a few barracudas, the fishing this week out of Fort Lauderdale has been excellent all that is missing is YOU!! lots of variety of fish biting and what looks like calm weather greeting us the next week or so.
If Your in Fort Lauderdale and looking for a deep sea fishing charter check out the YB Normal right on Fort Lauderdale beach, we have cold ac and a lot of different fishing trips to choose from!
