Hello everyone, Capt. Vinnie here hope everyone is doing well, this weeks report is a good one with some LARGE fish we caught this week so lets get right into it, this week the trolling bite has picked up and the kingfish have been around, we have been doing best on them in the early mornings as well as late afternoons, the best baits for them have been seawitches and bonito strips trolled on planners, we also have been catching some barracuda as well as a few bonito while working the reef, as we venture offshore a little bit there has been a few blackfin and skipjack tuna around as well the key to catching them this year is fishing small lures far back behind the boat and also to find clean blue water. This week we have a great photo. of a giant and I mean giant amberjack that we recently caught on one of our deep sea fishing charters this fish was caught on a local shipwreck in 300 feet of water and weighted 76lbs, don’t mind my face in the photo it was very heavy. The wreck fishing has been very good as of later for hard fighting amberjack as well as some black grouper, we tend to do best while fishing shipwrecks with live baits like blue runners and baby bonito.
Night fishing has been very good as well as long as the ocean is calm and the winds are light we have been doing very well on the yellowtail snapper and mangrove snapper also, when the current has been light we have been fishing some of the shallower shipwrecks in the area catching mutton snapper, all the snapper species are great eatting and have excellent colors.
This week we have some availability and would love to have you, it seems there is our first cold front of the year approaching which should get the sailfish to start biting here shortly pretty exciting if you ask me… If your in the Fort Lauderdale area and looking to do some deep sea fishing check out the YB Normal.
more later…
