It’s nice to get back to fishing after last week’s weather. It’s even better to find a few kings!

Cobia, banded rudders, strawberry groupers, mutton, yellowtail, lane, mangrove snappers

Captain Bruce displays an unusual catch of an adult French Angelfish. The fish was safely released and is one of over 100 species of tropical ornamental reef fish that inhabit the Lady K’s fishing grounds. Plan a trip today and see what mystic wonders may come up on your line.

Matt (2nd from right) hooked and landed a beautiful 13 pound Red Grouper while bottom fishing and using a squid strip for bait. Other anglers took Mutton Snapper to 10 pounds along with King Mackerel, Porgies, Black-fin Tuna and a host of other reef fish during the morning trip. The afternoon trip brought back King Mackerel to 12 pounds, Gray Triggerfish and other reef fish.


Junior angler Dylan displays a big Mutton Snapper caught while spooling a thread-fin herring across the bottom. The best bet for a family with small children is to bottom fish using cut squid. Fishing in this manner will produce many different species of colorful reef fish (have a camera ready) as well as larger predators like Grouper, Snapper, Cobia, Amberjack and even Sailfish have been caught by anglers using bottom rigs aboard the Lady K.

Monday’s morning trip was overcast and breezy but produced this nice Mutton Snapper and King Mackerel. There were some small Red Grouper releases, a small Cobia release and False Albacore releases. The Lady K also promotes catch and release fishing, so should an angler not be interested in keeping their catch, please inform the crew so they can handle the fish as quickly as possible for a successful release.

 Father’s Day weekend brought warm blue skies along with some nice fish like this beautiful Black-fin Tuna. The Tuna continue to move through the area and can be caught among the False Albacore, also known as Bonito. The Black-fin Tuna have been caught by anglers fishing standard drift rigs and by anglers using vertical jigs.

 There have also been a few late spring Mahi Mahi showing up to grace the anglers aboard the Lady K with their aerial acrobatics and stunning colors. When the Mahi Mahi show up along the rail, be prepared to get your bait close to the boat, then let the fish run with the bait for a little while before setting the hook.

VIP anglers Lee (l) and Rob (r) found some good fishing during a night trip this past Father’s Day weekend and bagged a nice King Mackerel and Mutton Snapper while drift fishing aboard the Lady K. Night fishing has been productive for snapper, grunts, grouper and some King Mackerel without the heat of the sun on your neck. The Lady K offers night-time drift fishing trips seven days a week and no reservations are needed.

 Look for the snapper bite continue firing up as we progress into summer. Delicious fish like the Yellow-tail Snapper pictured above have been finding their way into the ice box and upon the dinner table for many of the anglers aboard the Lady K. Plan your trip today and join the fun, fishing aboard the Lady K under the tropical Florida sun!

A nice Mutton Snapper comes aboard the Lady K by the masked Snapper Bandit. Both Yellow-tail and Mutton Snapper have been caught by lucky anglers drift fishing the local wrecks and reefs with sardines. Ask the crews of the Lady K to give a demonstration of how to “spool the bottom” to increase your success while fishing for these great tasting fish.

Phil (l) and Alex(r) display their bookend Cobia caught during a morning trip aboard the Lady K. Cobia can be caught by anglers fishing with either drift rigs baited with sardines or while using a bottom rig baited with cut squid. Although the Cobia may resemble a shark or catfish while being fought up to the boat, the fish are actually in a class all by themselves. These fish rank among the top for excellent table fare which makes them a highly sought after game-fish.

VIP angler Danny caught and released this nice Gag Grouper while fishing an afternoon trip on the Lady K. Grouper season remains closed until May 1st, 2012. All grouper caught aboard the Lady K must be quickly dehooked, vented and safely released so have a camera at the ready to capture a photo of your catch. A few lucky anglers have also had the opportunity to catch and release Sailfish while targeting other species of fish such as Mahi Mahi and King Mackerel.

Come explore the offshore waters of Southern Palm Beach County. Have a relaxing time fishing the cool blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean and sight other marine life while doing so. Sea Turtle nesting season has begun in South Florida and along with the giant marine reptiles, anglers have been sighting pods of porpoise and sea birds as they begin their spring migration. Come sail away on the Lady K.
