Despite losing the wind, new VIP angler Rick S. managed to bring aboard this nice 15 pound Cobia fishing on Lady K during a recent afternoon, his first ever and after catching two smaller Cobia prior to this one. All in all there were over a dozen Cobia released during the afternoon with a few of the bigger fish being taken by sharks before the anglers could hoist them up from the depths. Most of the fish were caught on sardine rigs although anglers using bottom rigs and cut squid did manage to catch a couple. Other anglers also caught snapper, porgies, triggerfish, jacks and a host of other reef fish including a Blue-spotted Coronet like the one pictured below.

Night fishing continues to prove productive with anglers catching Mangrove snapper to 4 pounds, Mutton snapper to 5 pounds, Lane snapper to 2 pounds and King Mackerel along with releases of Grouper. There is also plenty of catch release action with Bluefish, Banded Rudderfish, Blue Runners and Grunts. During the evening trips anglers should bring some extra clothing, for the nights can get a bit chilly. Affordable, relaxing and fun everyday fishing aboard the Lady K.
