The Spotted Trunkfish is a rarely caught tropical reef fish. The Lady K may only catch several of these fish per year by anglers fishing bottom rigs and cut squid. The beautiful violet colors and turquoise to silverish spots, along with their unusual shape, make this fish an excellent candidate for a replica fish mount.
Just one wonderful trip out of many for Christmas week. This afternoon trip found anglers battling Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel and False Albacore – filling up every nail on the board. The King Mackerel have started showing up with anglers catching fish between 6 to 15 pounds during the morning and afternoon trips. The best way to catch the mackerel is by using a sardine rig and either leaving the rod in a rod holder or by slowly reeling the bait back to the vessel.
Stumpy the Pelican is back for another year! Stumpy has been visiting the Lady K every year for the past several years. He patiently waits on the rail for photo ops and a sardine or two. When you come out on the Lady K, keep an eye out on the stern rail as we head back to the dock and have your camera ready as Stumpy snatches a snack like the photo below……………
The Lady K will be in full operation for the rest of this year and throughout the New Year, including New Years Eve and New Years Day. We are looking forward to another great fishing season as 2011 opens new and exciting possibilities for rare or unusual sightings of marine life and more excellent catches of Cobia, Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Tuna, Snapper, Grouper, Sharks and much more……….. get hooked on a new adventure today – fishing aboard the Lady K!
