Lady K mate, Chessy, works hard along the rail and is caught in the act of helping a customer bring his nice Mutton Snapper catch aboard where the fish will be iced down then prepared for the table back at the dock.
Lady K junior anglers Allie and Erin fished with their mom during an afternoon trip and showed all the guys how to catch fish. Here they display a wonderful catch of Yellow-tail Snapper, King Mackerel and a Black-fin Tuna. Excellent job ladies. Keep up the good work!
Some bigger Mahi Mahi have been showing up in the Lady K’s home waters. Jimmy displays a beautiful cow caught during an afternoon trip which ate a free-lined sardine. Most of the average Mahi are around five to six pounds but look for the larger fish in the 20 to 30 pound to be just outside or under the schools of smaller fish.
Cobia are still moving through the area and are being caught by anglers fishing near the bottom for snapper as well as near the surface by those trying their luck for Mahi Mahi and King Mackerel. The big fish are an excellent surprise for anglers looking to take home excellent table fare.
Mixed catches of fish should continue throughout May as fish continue to migrate through the area. Look for continued sightings of sharks, sea turtles and porpoise during your offshore experience aboard the Lady K. Be sure to bring plenty of sunblock for the family as we near the summer months or check out one of our 6:30pm to 10:30pm night trips for a cooler alternative. Thank you for visiting and fishing Florida, the fishing capitol of the world.
King Mackerel have also been hitting fairly well during the morning trips as this experienced angler demonstrates. With the clear waters of summer, try using heavy fluorocarbon or mono leaders instead of wire.
Junior angler Austin can sometimes be seen helping out along the rail and is proud to pose with his 26 pound King Mackerel caught during an evening trip. Although the King Mackerel aren’t running as thick as they do during the spring, these summer time spawning fish are being caught on dead sardines by anglers fishing throughout the water column. Our experienced crews are waiting to give you quick and easy instructions to bring out the angler in you and make it a great day on the Lady K.
The fishing was good for many anglers who fished the three daily trips of the Lady K this past Memorial Day weekend. Morning trips have been producing King Mackerel, Black-fin Tuna, Snapper and fish like the hard fighting African Pompano pictured above.
During some of the afternoon trips, Dorado (aka Dolphin or Mahi Mahi) have been showing up and when a school of these colorful fish show up there is sure to be some excitement. Most of the Dorado have been schooling sized fish in the 4 to 6 pound class. Use either a small chunk of bait on a single hook or a triple hooked sardine with the tail cut off and fished close to the boat for a chance to land one of these delicious fish.
There are still some toothy critters on and around the reefs where the Lady K fishes. Great Barracuda like the one pictured above will not only eat your Snapper or King Mackerel while your fighting it to the boat, but also hit triple hooked sardines and can give an awesome battle including aerial displays.
The morning and evening trips have been the best bet for anglers hoping to land Black-fin Tuna. Although sharks remain a nuisance, the Lady K has brought back a few whole Tuna to the dock this week. Most of the Tuna bite has been during the evening trip just before or right after dark. Remember to let these fish pull drag during their initial run because trying to stop one of these brutes will only result in a broken line.
Cobia action has continued with the fish surprising anglers during any one of the three trips and feeding at various depths. Although conditions are constantly changing, the fishing report for all three trips has King Mackerel feeding heavy in the morning and evening, Snapper feeding throughout the three trips with quite a few Yellow-tail snapper being caught during the afternoons, Black-fin Tuna feeding morning and evenings and False Albacore feeding both morning and afternoon, Cobia have been caught during any trip and with the steady east breeze the outlook for continued Mahi Mahi action could be very favorable.
The crews of the Lady K hopes everyone had a very happy and safe Memorial Day weekend and we salute all of our veterans for your service to our country. Thank you!
