Nice Mutton Snappers like these continue to be caught aboard the Lady K during all three of her daily trips. Fish up to eight pounds have been caught this past week by anglers “spooling” the bottom with sardines or by bouncing jigs tipped with sardines along the bottom.

 Yellow-tail Snapper up to 4 pounds have also been taken by anglers using light spinning tackle in conjunction with jigs or boat rods while using cut sardines. Some anglers have also been catching Yellow-tails while fishing small jig heads tipped with fresh or live shrimp. The afternoon thunder storms have been increasing the snapper bite with overcast conditions which helps to obscure the snappers keen eyesight.

 Night fishing has been producing Mangrove, Lane, Mutton and Yellow-tail Snapper along with an occasional King Mackerel. Most of the Yellow-tails are being caught before the sun sets then anglers switch over for the larger snapper found along the reefs at night. The Mutton and Mangrove Snapper in the photo above weighed in at just over six pounds each. Lane snappers have been feeding on sardine chunks and by anglers using multiple silver-sides on a small circle hook.

What are you waiting for? The summer’s hot but the fishing is starting to get hotter. Plan your trip today aboard the Lady K for your four hour get-away.
