Dinner and a Show

Posted February 25, 2020

Hey guys Capt. Vinnie here of the YB Normal out of Fort Lauderdale, this week we had some epic fishing I mean epic, first I would like to start off with a beautiful sailfish we caught earlier in the week while trolling, the sailfish was 78 inched a true trophy, next I would like to talk about some recent catches of blackfin tuna, the bite has been very very good on both morning and afternoon charters, we have been catch our limit almost everyday of tuna the have been nice sized around 10lbs or so, there are such great eating also one of my personal favorites we have been catching them on small feathers and squid lures, also on deep. lines using planers and seawitches and bonito strips, there has been some nice kingfish action as well just in a little shallower on the reef. Today we caught some mahi which is somewhat rare for February, while trolling today offshore in around 400 feet of water I found a frigate bird and he lead us to the fish, the fish are biting very well lately, it is great to see because this is an early sign of spring fishing conditions and spring time is one of my favorite times to fish!
As for night time fishing I was able to get out a few times this week because there was a break in the weather and it was excellent fishing for snapper on the reef, I have picture of a nice yellowtail snapper we caught on our night time fishing charters it was very nice sized as well 26inches and around 5lbs or so a very tasty fish for the table as well as hard fighters, we had plenty of action on the night fish with mangrove snappers on the bottom and yellowtail snapper in the chum line, we also had a nice catch of some bluefish on our night trip as well they may not taste very good but they fight very very hard!
The fishing has really picked up as we approach our spring season daytime fishing has been very good for tuna as well as kingfish and there is always a chance for a sailfish, the night fishing should get even better as well!

If your looking for a sport fishing charter in the fort Lauderdale area check out YB Normal there is no experience needed and we put you on the fish!
More later…
