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
Anglers fishing during breezy conditions with the right mixture of current, Sargasso weed and flying fish around the area may have the opportunity to hook and land Mahi Mahi like these during the late spring and early summer months. With the extended daylight on the Lady K’s 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm trips, late afternoon Mahi Mahi and sailfish are always a possibility.
Don’t miss the action! Plan a trip today for four hours or make a full day of it. No reservations are needed, just come on down to the dock about a half hour early and purchase your tickets at Bar Jack’s Fish Tales Marina Store. Everything you need is included at one low price – bait, tackle, rods, reels, fishing license and ice for your fish or drinks stored in the ships coolers. This is an offshore experience the whole family can enjoy offering the opportunity to see marine life such as Whale Sharks, Sea Turtles, Porpoise, Bottle-nosed Dolphin, Manta ray, Manatee and a variety of marine birds. Tight lines and good fishing everyone!
Brandon (l) gets a helping hand from mate Joe while displaying his 55 pound Wahoo. Brandon caught the fish while drifting fishing with a standard drift rig and using a sardine for bait on his own 30 pound test outfit. The fish put up an impressive 25 minute battle before being succumbed to the gaff. While Wahoo are most commonly caught by anglers trolling lures at high-speed although the fish will eat baits drifting in the current and the Lady K will boat a few dozen fish every year while drifting.

High hook of the week goes to VIP angler Lee for landing this 43 pound Cobia. A whale shark estimated at 30 feet cruised by the Lady K and brought some following Cobia along with it. Lee reeled his bait quickly and let it dropped next to the whale shark in order to hook his catch. Other anglers also caught Cobia as the shark fish swam alongside the Lady K, giving many customers a glimpse at one of nature’s largest marine fish.
Many anglers are still catching King Mackerel from 5 pounds up to 12 pounds. During one afternoon some lucky anglers caught a few large Yellow-eye Snapper and plenty of big Gray Triggerfish to bring home for dinner. Mutton Snapper have been caught during the afternoon trips as well with fish up to 5 pounds landing in the cooler.
Anglers can now check out our Face Book page and post photos of their catch or tag us on their photos. Just one more way for our giant fishing family to stay informed on what’s being caught. Thank you for fishing with Bar Jack Fishing and welcome aboard the Lady K.
These anglers took on rough seas and were rewarded with a nice catch of Mahi Mahi to 15 pounds, King Mackerel to 27 pounds, Skip Jack Tuna to 10 pounds, a Blackfin Tuna, False Albacore and a mixture of bottom fish. The catch took place during a morning trip aboard the Lady K. The afternoon trip found anglers catching more King Mackerel, releasing two Atlantic Sailfish estimated to weigh up to 50 pounds, Mutton Snapper to 4 pounds and released some small Cobia.
Stacey was visiting from New Jersey and decided to take a trip aboard the Lady K during the afternoon this past weekend. She hooked and landed her first ever salt-water fish with a little coaching from the crew, a nice Mahi Mahi. The professional crews of the Lady K will teach you how to use the equipment while offering tips or techniques in order to become a successful angler. Congratulations Stacey on your first salt-water catch, excellent work!!!
Our afternoon trips have also seen some Sailfish releases, catches of yellow-tail and Mutton Snapper, King Mackerel, Grouper, Mahi Mahi and other assorted bottom fish like Porgies, Grunts, Triggerfish and releases of Black Sea Bass. The few nights trips the Lady K has been able to get out on have produced some quality sized Lane and Mangrove Snapper, Bluefish, small Sharks, Grunts and Triggerfish.
So pick the trip that’s right for you. No reservations are required. Just show up at the dock around 45 minutes prior to the sailing time to purchase your ticket, chat with the locals and make some new fishing friends, for everyday is a great day aboard the Lady K!
Taking a day off from work, Joe caught this 59 inch King Mackerel on “the drop”. The fish ate a triple hooked sardine just under the boat as Joe was letting out line, almost taking every bit of line from the reel during its initial run and was brought to gaff within 5 minutes. The fish weighed in at 50 pounds back at the dock and is Joe’s largest fish caught to date.
Trophy fish such as these don’t come along everyday but when they do the experienced crews of the Lady K will help you land them. Break free of the everyday, fishing a four-hour trip aboard the Lady K and allowing your cares to just drift away.
A first time catch to be proud of, a 34 pound Black-fin Tuna caught by one of the Lady K’s lady anglers during a recent afternoon trip. The month of May generally produces good numbers of Black-fin Tuna ranging from 25 to 40 pounds during both the afternoon and evening trips.
Cobia continue to take baits for anglers fishing for Snapper or King Mackerel. Cobia will average 20 to 40 pounds throughout May but can grow to over 100 pounds, making it important to allow these large fish to run off line when they want to.
Be part of the big fish bonanza aboard the Lady K. All three of our daily trips are producing quality fish keeping our crews busy both at the rail and at the cleaning table. Tight lines and good angling.
