Anglers fishing aboard the Lady K this week have kept their eyes open to the skies for Frigate birds and Seagulls as they worked schools of baitfish along the surface. Gamefish such as Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel and Bonito continue to push south with the birds marking the predators as they feed near the surface.

Under the birds young Casey found a child sized Mahi Mahi to bring home for dinner and did a wonderful job bringing the fish to the boat. The school of gamefish were no match for the anglers who fished during this trip as the photo below shows, including a nice King Mackerel.
This afternoon Mahi Mahi was taken at boat side by one of our VIP anglers, Lynn, who also caught some large Gray Triggerfish, Mutton snapper and Yellow-tail snapper to bring home for dinner. Great job!
Large Mutton Snapper like Bruce’s 8 1/2 pound fish caught off one of the areas local artificial reefs during a morning trip this week, can be caught while spooling the bottom with sardines. Feel free to ask one of the Lady K’s crew members how to “spool the bottom” for a chance to catch many different snapper species during your offshore adventure.
A Queen Triggerfish, one of our areas most beautiful ornamental reef fish, is quickly photographed before being released back into the Atlantic Ocean. Make sure you bring a camera to photograph many of the different reef fish that can be caught while using bottom or “guppy rigs” and cut squid. Bottom rigs can catch many different species of fish including Grunts, Porgies, Filefish, Triggerfish, Puffers, Grouper, Snapper, Jacks and even large gamefish such as Cobia, King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi and even small Sharks.
