Daytime Wreck Fishing

Posted February 06, 2020

This week on the YB Normal out of Fort Lauderdale it has been a great week, but we do like to change it up sometimes as change specially in fishing is a good thing. We had some great trips this week, and the fishing as been good also, we have been catching a nice variety of fish on our charters, We have been trolling like normal catching mahi mahi which is a great eating fish and one of the prettiest fish that we catch in our waters, as well as blackfin tuna which is a great fish also and is sushi grade if you like sushi but if not that is ok to because it is great seared in a hot skillet. We also have been catching some bonito and kingfish. When the fishing is slow we like to change it up here at the YB Normal and fish some of the deep ship wrecks or artificial reefs in Fort Lauderdale, we like to do some vertical jigging over some of these wrecks which is a great technique to catch fish when fishing is slow, vertical jigging is a style of fishing where you use apiece of metal with a hook on it and you drop it over structure and jig it to the surface as fast as you can in order to get a reaction strike, this is a good way to target hard fighting fish like amerjack these fish are known for there hard fighting abilities and stamina, the fishing in the afternoon has been very good for tuna and they have been nice sized to around 7lb average to as big as 15lbs, the fishing should continue to keep improving as we approach march and the spring season.
As far as night fishing it has been good for snapper if the conditions are good, weather windows have been small for night fishing but the nights we have been out we have been having good catches of yellowtail and mangrove snappers.
This week is a busy one for us but there is some availability if your looking to get out on a deep sea fishing charter, give us a chance you won’t be disappointed!
More later..
