Just Enough Royalty

A couple of small kings were perfect for the grill. Come out with us as the king bite is picking up.

Christmas Eve's Eve Pompano

HUGE!

November Fronts

The fronts have brought good fishing with catches from Mahi, Cobia, Kingfish, and Snapper. The oceans have calmed substantially and this upcoming week is expected to bring warm days and calmer seas. We hope to see you on one of our three daily trips!

VIP angler Matthew caught this nice 35 pound King Mackerel while fishing during one of the Lady K’s evening trips. The fish hit a sardine fished on a knocker rig and put up a great battle before it was gaffed by the crew. King mackerel have been caught by anglers fishing during any of the Lady K’s three daily trips.

This afternoon trip saw anglers battling Cobia, Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Mutton Snapper and False Albacore through the trip. Anglers also had the opportunity to witness Bull Sharks cruising just under the vessel as they chased baitfish. There was plenty of action with quite a few big fish being chased and even eaten by the sharks. First time anglers also saw Green turtles, Loggerhead turtles and a giant Leatherback turtle.

Cobia, like those pictured above, continue to be taken during any of the Lady K’s three daily trips. Fish up to 50 pounds have been caught during the first half of May and should continue to move through the area into June. Many anglers are having great success catching Cobia by using knocker rigs baited with either sardines or goggle-eyes and fished just under the boat or while spooling the bottom for snapper.

Sailfish continue to be spotted free jumping around the Lady K and a few releases of these beautiful acrobatic fish have been made by anglers fishing during the morning and afternoon trips. Letting out plenty of line is key to hooking big fish like this

Anglers fishing during breezy conditions with the right mixture of current, Sargasso weed and flying fish around the area may have the opportunity to hook and land Mahi Mahi like these during the late spring and early summer months. With the extended daylight on the Lady K’s 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm trips, late afternoon Mahi Mahi and sailfish are always a possibility.

Fish and Wildlife biologist collect data after an extraordinary afternoon catch of 90 Gray Triggerfish caught by anglers fishing aboard the Lady K during the final week of November. Gray Triggerfish are excellent table fare and will give any angler a terrific battle on any size tackle. One of the most common ways of catching Triggerfish is by using a bottom rig baited with cut squid although fish in the 4 to 8 pound range will take whole sardines fished on drift rigs.

VIP angler Danny has been doing fairly well catching Mutton Snapper like the 11 pound fish he is displaying above. His equation for catching these large snapper is fairly easy, the longer the string, the bigger the thing. Mutton Snapper are commonly caught by anglers using drift rigs around the reefs and local wrecks but a fair number of the fish are also taken by anglers using bottom rigs. Other snapper species that have been taken by anglers fishing aboard the Lady K last week include Yellow-tail Snapper, Lane Snapper, Mangrove Snapper and Schoolmaster Snapper.

Mahi Mahi, also know as dolphin, have been taken anglers who are willing to fish during choppy conditions. A very common food fish, the Mahi Mahi can grow as large as 80 pounds and feed on anything, including small sea turtles and seahorses. One of the best bets for Mahi Mahi is by using a sardine on a weighed knocker rig or by “free-lining” a bait far from the boat.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Saturday’s afternoon trip started December off  with Johnathan landing this 30 pound Amberjack he jigged up while vertical jigging aboard the Lady K over an area ledge off Boynton Beach. Other anglers caught Gray Triggerfish, Banded Rudderfish, Yellow-tail Snapper, False Albacore, Almaco Jacks and Red Grouper during the trip. Check out our entire site for more information on trips and rates. Anglers concerned about sea conditions can click on the NOAA link for forecast ocean conditions or contact us at (561) 588-7612 for current conditions. Fishing is a fun way to spend the day so come join us aboard the Lady K!

 

A good morning trip on Tuesday with a catch of  Yellow-tail Snapper, Mutton Snapper, Triggerfish, Barracuda and King Mackerel. Drifted sardines produced many nice Yellow-tails at or over the two pound mark using standard drift rigs. Anglers fishing with small jigs and squid also did their fair share of damage to the snapper. The trip ended with a beautiful Sailfish release.

 

Another fall cobia finds it way aboard the Lady K during Wednesday’s morning trip along with more Yellow-tail Snapper and a nice Red Grouper. Anglers fishing bottom rigs did an excellent job catching Porgies and some big Gray Triggerfish.

 

An afternoon catch included some nice Mutton Snapper action along with some King Mackerel, Yellow-tail Snapper, Almaco Jacks and Barracuda. Night time fishing has been producing snapper along with plenty of Ribbon fish and small sharks. September is the off season and a perfect time for anglers who appreciate light crowds with little to no tangling. So don’t delay and plan a trip today aboard the Lady K.

This 34 pound bull Mahi Mahi gave Lady K teen angler, Austin, a nice fight after the fish hit in 50 feet of water. Austin said he felt a fish tap his bait when it hit the bottom and as he reeled, up came this big bull. After the fish was boated, other anglers noticed something “kicking around” in the stomach of the fish and it was assumed that the fish ate a blue runner that may have initially hit Austin’s bait. Back at the cleaning table everyone was surprised to see a whole 16″ Mutton Snapper come out of the fishes stomach. Excellent catch Austin, sure to be a memory of a lifetime!

 VIP angler may not have used a Mutton Snapper for bait but sure had his hands full fighting this beautiful 20 plus pound Bull Mahi Mahi on 20 pound spinning tackle.  Impeding cold fronts and strong east winds have been pushing the Mahi Mahi in and anglers fishing aboard the Lady K have been catching the fish while either flat lining or using one ounce sliding sinker rigs and sardines for bait. Fish from 5 to 25 pounds have been taken along with large Gray Triggerfish to 7 pounds, Cobia to 25 pounds, Grouper to 20 pounds and Yellow-tail Snapper. Sharks have also been taking their share of anglers fish so be sure you reel fast, real fast.

Don’t forget that BarJack Fishing has gift cards available for the holiday season at out ticket office.

These three lucky anglers chose to fish aboard the Lady K Monday morning after the heavy weekend blow and caught these nice Red Grouper while fishing sardines on the bottom. Other anglers also brought in some nice Yellow-tail and Mutton Snapper along with an assortment of other bottom fish.

 The afternoon trip gave VIP anglers Danny (l) and JR (r) a golden opportunity to land these nice Gag (Gray) Grouper. The fish both ate dead sardines spooled along the bottom. A few more nice grouper managed to elude anglers by rocking them up in the reef. The Lady K also caught some more nice Mutton and Yellow-tail Snapper along with a few jumbo sized Gray Triggerfish.

There are still Mahi Mahi and King Mackerel coming aboard the Lady K this week along with an assortment of bottom fish, Grouper, Triggerfish and Snapper. So plan a trip today aboard the newly updated Lady K !
