VIP angler Ken displays a beautiful 29 pound Cobia landed aboard the Lady K during an afternoon trip. The fish ate a sardine spooled along the bottom and for a few moments, that’s exactly would Ken thought he hooked. After a comment on how well the captain tied his knot, the captain grabbed the line to see if the line would come free of the reef and the “reef” started moving. The fish put up a fierce battle to the vessel making three hard runs back down to the reef looking for any obstruction to free itself. Ken kept a light steady pressure on the fish letting the rod wear down his adversary and allowing the crew to boat the fish. Nice job Ken!
Other fish being landed aboard the Lady K this week include Yellow-tail snapper, King Mackerel to the 20 pound class, Porgies, Gray Triggerfish, a few Mutton snapper, football sized Black-fin Tuna and False Albacore. All grouper must be released until the season opens again May 1st as well as all Vermillion snapper until their season opens on April 1st. Fishing is good rain or shine, day or night. Get hooked on a good time with the courteous crews of the Lady K – service with a smile.
