Some of the students from Crestwood Middle school display their catches of Mutton snapper, Kingfish, Gray Triggerfish, Porgy and a Pomfret which were taken while fishing triple hooked sardines during a chilly December morning field trip. Some students also caught and released Atlantic Sharpnose Sharks up to three feet long while also having a chance to witness a free-swimming Sailfish as it cruised past the bow during their offshore excursion.

 The Pomfret is a very unusual catch aboard the Lady K. The fish can be caught during the months of December and January by anglers using sardines or small jigs tipped with squid. The Pomfret has bright silvery sides when first taken from the water and are good table fare.
