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!

Mahi, finally!

Lee caught this beautiful 20 mahi mahi during Wednesday’s afternoon trip. Bonito, vermillion snapper, big lane snapper, red porgies triggerfish and some big king hits kept things lively.

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.

Don’t miss the action! Plan a trip today for four hours or make a full day of it. No reservations are needed, just come on down to the dock about a half hour early and purchase your tickets at Bar Jack’s Fish Tales Marina Store. Everything you need is included at one low price – bait, tackle, rods, reels, fishing license and ice for your fish or drinks stored in the ships coolers. This is an offshore experience the whole family can enjoy offering the opportunity to see marine life such as Whale Sharks, Sea Turtles, Porpoise, Bottle-nosed Dolphin, Manta ray, Manatee and a variety of marine birds. Tight lines and good fishing everyone!

 

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.

 

A nice haul of fish including King Mackerel, Mutton Snapper, Yellow-tail Snapper, Triggerfish, Barracuda along with a sailfish, a cobia and many Red Grouper releases kept anglers busy during the afternoon trip mid-week. The fish were caught on a variety of rigs, baits and lures during the four hour trip off the Boynton Inlet. The best part of it is watching the junior anglers battle their fish. Excellent work anglers!

 Taking a day off from work, Joe caught this 59 inch King Mackerel on “the drop”. The fish ate a triple hooked sardine just under the boat as Joe was letting out line, almost taking every bit of line from the reel during its initial run and was brought to gaff within 5 minutes. The fish weighed in at 50 pounds back at the dock and is Joe’s largest fish caught to date.

 Trophy fish such as these don’t come along everyday but when they do the experienced crews of the Lady K will help you land them. Break free of the everyday, fishing a four-hour trip aboard the Lady K and allowing your cares to just drift away.

 A first time catch to be proud of, a 34 pound Black-fin Tuna caught by one of the Lady K’s lady anglers during a recent afternoon trip. The month of May generally produces good numbers of Black-fin Tuna ranging from 25 to 40 pounds during both the afternoon and evening trips.

 Cobia continue to take baits for anglers fishing for Snapper or King Mackerel. Cobia will average 20 to 40 pounds throughout May but can grow to over 100 pounds, making it important to allow these large fish to run off line when they want to.

 Be part of the big fish bonanza aboard the Lady K. All three of our daily trips are producing quality fish keeping our crews busy both at the rail and at the cleaning table. Tight lines and good angling.

 A big Yellow-tail Snapper brought a resplendent smile to one of the Lady K’s junior anglers, not to mention a wonderful dinner for mom to cook up. Our experienced crews strive very hard to help as many junior and lady anglers alike an opportunity to hook a catch of a lifetime or just that first ever fish no matter the size. It’s just what we do.

 A Banded Rudderfish, a member of the Jack family, will put up a hard battle for anyone and will bring big smiles of success with memories for a life-time. Kids, make sure you eat your spinach before trying to battle some of the big fish caught aboard the Lady K. Quality time with family or friends on the open ocean truly is what fishing’s about. Parents please be sure you have sunscreen for the kids and bring a camera to capture the action. Seize the day aboard the Lady K.
