VIP angler Matthew caught this nice 35 pound King Mackerel while fishing during one of the Lady K’s evening trips. The fish hit a sardine fished on a knocker rig and put up a great battle before it was gaffed by the crew. King mackerel have been caught by anglers fishing during any of the Lady K’s three daily trips.
This afternoon trip saw anglers battling Cobia, Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Mutton Snapper and False Albacore through the trip. Anglers also had the opportunity to witness Bull Sharks cruising just under the vessel as they chased baitfish. There was plenty of action with quite a few big fish being chased and even eaten by the sharks. First time anglers also saw Green turtles, Loggerhead turtles and a giant Leatherback turtle.
Cobia, like those pictured above, continue to be taken during any of the Lady K’s three daily trips. Fish up to 50 pounds have been caught during the first half of May and should continue to move through the area into June. Many anglers are having great success catching Cobia by using knocker rigs baited with either sardines or goggle-eyes and fished just under the boat or while spooling the bottom for snapper.
Sailfish continue to be spotted free jumping around the Lady K and a few releases of these beautiful acrobatic fish have been made by anglers fishing during the morning and afternoon trips. Letting out plenty of line is key to hooking big fish like this

One of three nice Cobia that came up by anglers fishing for snapper aboard the Lady K during a warm morning trip. Other anglers had their hands full when the False Albacore (a.k.a. Bonito) would run through the lines. Bonito are excellent fighting fish giving even seasoned anglers a run for their money. Although not very popular as table fare such as the cobia, bonito do make excellent bait when filleted out and used as strips or chunks for trolling or bottom fishing.

This 41 pound King Mackerel ate a large sardine for VIP angler Lee while the Lady K was drifting over the shallow section of the reef during a recent trip week.
