Hello everyone, Capt. Vinnie here and this week I have a great report for you guys, outstanding fishing but also some great weather as well. So this week the trolling on the reef has been very productive in the early mornings for mostly kingfish or king mackeral, the edge of the reef from 80 feet on out to 130 feet has been the most productive. Fishing baits under the surface using planers has been the best way to get some bites. Also just on the edge of the reef we have been catching quite a few bonitos. Moving just off the reef to depths around 200 feet of water we have been seeing some great blackfin tuna action. Trolling has been the best wait to get the tunas to bite in numbers but with trolling you are targeting all size tunas where as fishing live baits like goggle eyes and pilchards you won’t get as many bites but the tunas you will catch are going to be alot larger in size close to the 25lb mark. Like I usually say its quantity vs quality so you have to decide what you want. While fishing for the tuna we defiantly have been putting a wahoo bait out just incase and lets just say it payed off big time this week, catching a 42lb wahoo “pictured”. Also a fantastic surprise that is welcomed anytime. Moving a little further offshore there has been few mahi mahi around but not as many as a few weeks ago, still as I always say its very important to find signs of life like birds, seaweeds, floating debris etc. The ocean is a huge place and its best think of it as a desert and the signs of life you find would be considered an oasis. I would imagine as we move closer to summer time the mahi acton will continue to improve. Last but not least the wreck fishing for large gamefish like amberjacks has been very good, most deeper shipwrecks off the coast of Fort Lauderdale in depths around 200 feet are going to have large amberjacks on them right now. Live baits like goggle eyes and bullet bonitos are going to work the best and heavy tackle is a must if you want to land these hard fighters. While wreck fishing with live bait there is always a chance for a grouper or even a large snapper which is what makes it so much fun because you never know what you are going to catch. This week please be sure to check out some of the great photos we have of some recent catches caught while out on our deep sea fishing charters, and remember to give us a like and follow on social media platforms like facebook and instagram @Ybnormalsportfishing for daily fishing content. The month of May in Fort Lauderdale in my opinion is one of the best times to fish lots of great species to catch and usually very very nice weather, not as hot as summer but not rough water like winter time. We should continue to see excellent tuna fishing as well as plenty of kingfish and the bottom fishing also heating up so if your thinking about heading down to Fort Lauderdale and wanting to do some deep sea fishing we have plenty of availability for the month of May so please look us up and we will show you a great time out on the water. More later…..
