This 8 1/2 pound monster sized Porgy ate a whole sardine. The catch by one of the Lady K’s junior anglers took everyone by surprise after a partly cloudy morning trip but proved to make an excellent meal that night.
Although not very common during the late summer months, this 18 pound Bull Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) was taken on a spinning outfit while free-lining a dead sardine. Another fine catch by VIP angler Lee! The Lady K’s VIP program offers anglers the opportunity to fish many days per month at a discounted rate while pursuing game-fish such as these.
After a second day of fishing this 46 pound Cobia was caught by Nya’s mom Katrina, who had reservations about getting close to the beast for a photo, so a proud daughter stands in. The fish was caught on a 20 pound spinning outfit while using a dead sardine on a one ounce knocker rig. Excellent job ladies!!
On some of the deeper drifts, the Lady K has seen quite a few large Almaco Jacks like the 26 pound fish caught by Jeff pictured above. These fish hit hard and fight even harder, taxing both the angler and their tackle. These large jacks and their cousins the Greater Amberjack have been hitting dead sardines as well as vertical or butterfly jigs fished by more advanced anglers.
The new school year is fast approaching so plan a half day of good ole fashioned quality time fishing aboard the Lady K and give the kids something exciting to talk about this summer. We’re looking forward to more wonderful catches aboard the Lady K and everyone is invited, just come as you are.
