The Lady K has passed her US Coast Guard Safety Inspection with flying colors and now its time to resume fishing off the South Palm Beach County coastline.
VIP angler Victor fished with his dad during a morning trip and caught this 33 pound, early winter Cobia while spooling a bait on the bottom. During the trip other anglers enjoyed action provided by King Mackerel, Mutton Snapper, Yellow-tail Snapper, small Sharks, Banded Rudderfish and Gray Triggerfish. If fishing a drift bait doesn’t work for you, ask one of your experienced crew members for a bottom rod and enjoy hooking up on a different fish species on every drop.
Catch and Release fishing has also been good for anglers fishing aboard the Lady K. Closed seasons on Vermillion Snapper, Black Sea Bass and all Shallow Water Grouper (like the nice Gag Grouper pictured above) continue to provide action (although disheartening) for anglers. The passing cold fronts have also allowed some lucky anglers to catch and release Sailfish throughout the week. The Lady K promotes catch and release fishing while encouraging anglers to bring along a camera for a quick snapshot of their catch before releasing so our younger generation of anglers can enjoy battling a fish in the future.
Plan a trip today aboard the Lady K and don’t forget that we also offer night fishing from 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm (with a minimum of 7 anglers for evening trips), so bring a friend and open the bail in order to place a fish in the pail!
Now that grouper season is open, shallow water grouper like this Redhind Grouper can be invited home to dinner. These small grouper rarely exceed over four pounds and love to feed on sardines as well as cut squid.
VIP angler Werner fished aboard the Lady K during an afternoon trip and bagged several nice Yellow-tail Snapper. Yellow-tails will hit a variety of baits fished on or near the bottom. They can be caught while drifting sardines, using cut squid on bottom rigs or with jigs tipped with either squid strips or shrimp.
Donald (l) gets a lending hand from mate Chessy after boating a beautiful Black-fin Tuna this week, just one of many caught throughout the week. Black-fins from 7 to 40 pounds have been caught by anglers drifting whole and cut sardines.
Fred (r) caught this beautiful Snowy Grouper during a deep-water drift on a morning trip. The fish ate a sardine spooled along the bottom. Other anglers also caught Vermilion Snapper, Red Porgies, Yellow-eye Snapper and large Almaco Jacks. Very sweet catch Fred!!
Favorable conditions have brought some excellent fishing to anglers during the evening trips. King Mackerel, Black-fin Tuna and Cobia have been feasting on sardines but beware, there are sharks out there looking to feast on your catch as well.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner so the entire staff at BarJack Fishing and crews of the Lady K wish everyone a Happy Mother’s Day. Tight lines and good fishing to all of our lady anglers!!
Conditions have to be perfect to enable the Lady K crews the opportunity to hook up anglers on deep water fish such Blue-line Tilefish. Tilefish live in water depths from 350 to well over 900 feet. Fishing for these excellent eating fish requires heavy sinkers, a little squid and a lot of stamina.
The crew can tell who eats their spinach or not! The young angler on the right showed he had what it takes to land his limit of Tilefish during a calm afternoon trip. The crew worked hard to ensure everyone caught fish to bring home for dinner by rotating rods throughout the trip.
While fishing the deeper waters of the Atlantic, anglers also fished sardine rigs for a chance to hook any passing Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna or other pelagic gamefish. The Sailfish pictured above and below was released by a young angler, his first Sailfish which will be a memory for a lifetime. Great job!
Is being cooped up with relatives making you a basket case? Then get out under the clear powder blue skies, fill your lungs with some good old salt air and ride the indigo waters of the Atlantic Ocean aboard the Lady K – your get away from the every day.
