Hello everyone Capt. Vinnie here, the fishing in Fort Lauderdale has still been hot and I can’t wait to tell you about what we have been catching in this weeks report….For this week starting on the inshore side of things there has been a so so king fish bite, early mornings have been best trolling with planners to help take baits under the surface using seawitches and fresh bonito strips, also inshore on the reef while trolling there has been some bonito and smaller barracuda. On the deeper side of the reef there has been a good amount of blackfin tuna with an average size close to 10lbs, but late afternoons around the dusk hours have been the best time to be out there if your looking for tuna. Trolling small lures on the surface to imitate baby squids has been the best option, its very important to fish the lures further back because tuna are very sensitive to the sounds that the engine which makes the fish go down in the water column. A few wahoo around this week to, seems as if anytime you are fishing around a full or new moon gives you the best chance at landing one of these tasty and beautiful fish. Bottom fishing this week has been productive as well, vermillion snapper has been the primary catch while bottom fishing, small pieces of structure in depths as deep as 300 feet have been the ticket, bottom fishing right now is a great way to put some fish in the cooler for a great dinner if trolling is slow. On the offshore side of things the name of the game has been mahi mahi mahi. Normally we catch mahi earlier in the year around June and July but for some reason this year the fish ar late that is ok its better then not getting them at all. Right now if your looking for mahi I highly recommend an all day trip of at least 8 hours. there has been alot of mahi out there but they been offshore as far as 20 miles. Lots of floating seaweed to fish as well as debris and birds. If you are lucky enough to get into a school of hungry mahi live bait is a must and will definitely improve your chances of landing a good amount. Right now in Fort Lauderdale there are still lots of different fish to target and catch, September is a great month to come down to South Florida and do some deep sea fishing. Be Sure to check out some of the great photos of some recent catches we have had during our deep sea fishing charters, and as always give us a follow on facebook and instagram @Ybnormalsportfishing for daily fishing content. Should have a solid report next week for you guys as well so be on the lookout!! More Later…. Capt. Vinnie 954 559 4700
