Now that grouper season is open, shallow water grouper like this Redhind Grouper can be invited home to dinner. These small grouper rarely exceed over four pounds and love to feed on sardines as well as cut squid.
VIP angler Werner fished aboard the Lady K during an afternoon trip and bagged several nice Yellow-tail Snapper. Yellow-tails will hit a variety of baits fished on or near the bottom. They can be caught while drifting sardines, using cut squid on bottom rigs or with jigs tipped with either squid strips or shrimp.
Donald (l) gets a lending hand from mate Chessy after boating a beautiful Black-fin Tuna this week, just one of many caught throughout the week. Black-fins from 7 to 40 pounds have been caught by anglers drifting whole and cut sardines.
Fred (r) caught this beautiful Snowy Grouper during a deep-water drift on a morning trip. The fish ate a sardine spooled along the bottom. Other anglers also caught Vermilion Snapper, Red Porgies, Yellow-eye Snapper and large Almaco Jacks. Very sweet catch Fred!!
Favorable conditions have brought some excellent fishing to anglers during the evening trips. King Mackerel, Black-fin Tuna and Cobia have been feasting on sardines but beware, there are sharks out there looking to feast on your catch as well.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner so the entire staff at BarJack Fishing and crews of the Lady K wish everyone a Happy Mother’s Day. Tight lines and good fishing to all of our lady anglers!!
