Charter boat YB Normal is here to take you on a fishing trip you won’t soon forget. Docked in Fort Lauderdale, Captain Vinnie has access to some of the most productive fishing grounds on the east coast of Florida. On your trip with YB Normal you’ll have the opportunity to try a variety of fishing techniques. Whether you’re jigging for Snapper while anchored up over a reef, or high-speed trolling for the elusive gamefish of the Atlantic, you’re in for a thrilling day on the water.

 

YB Normal offers trips suited for anyone’s needs. We’re one of the few boats in the Fort Lauderdale area that offers budget friendly shared trips, where you reserve a seat on the boat, not the whole boat. So if you’re a party of 2 not looking to break the bank of a full day fishing trip, you’ll be able to purchase 2 seats with the other 4 seats being filled with other friendly anglers looking for a good time on the water. And of course, we offer private trips as well! These trips are perfect for families, groups of friends, or anyone looking for a private, custom tailored trip designed to suit YOUR needs. With a maximum capacity of 6, YB Normal has more than enough room for everyone to be comfortably fishing. 

 

Owned and Operated by Captain Vinnie Sacks, a Fort Lauderdale local with over 11 years of professional Captain experience. He’s been fishing and working on boats his whole life, needless to say he knows where the fish are. He’s great with first time anglers, kids, veteran anglers- you name it. He’ll work with you to make sure you’re comfortable with the techniques needed to land anything that bites your hook! 

 

If you decide to book a half day trip, to make the most of our time we’ll mainly be bottom fishing/drift fishing over the abundance of reefs of the coast of Fort Lauderdale. The full day trips allow us the time needed to get to the fishing grounds a little further off the coast where we’ll be chasing the fish found in deeper waters. Sailfish and Tilefish are the two most popular targets for the longer trips, but Mahi Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, and Barracuda also aren’t strangers. On the reef trips, we’ll be landing Grouper, Amberjack, and a variety of Snapper including Yellowtail Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, and Mutton Snapper. 

 

Charter boat YB Normal is a well kept 43ft Sportfish built in 1985. She’s received maintenance on a regular basis and she’s powered by a 400hp John Deere 9.5L Turbo engine. The vessel is fully equipped with all of the gear needed for a great day on the water. Air Conditioning is our most popular feature where you’ll be able to relax in the “Living room” of the boat in between bites or on your way to and from the fishing grounds. And of course, your trip price includes a First Mate, all Rods, Reels, and Tackle, Filleting the day’s catch, and a fishing license for everyone on board.

 

Make the most of your stay in Fort Lauderdale by booking a trip with YB Normal and Captain Vinnie! We’re looking forward to helping you create memories that will last a lifetime, and leave you wanting to come back for more! Nothing beats the taste of a fresh grouper on the grill after being caught only hours ago… Book your trip today, our availability fills up fast!
