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 Lee bagged a limit of King Mackerel and a 48 pound Cobia while fishing during a morning trip near the end of May. He caught the cobia using a 12 pound spinning outfit while fishing for Yellow-tail Snapper. Another impressive catch Lee, keep up the good work!

Lady K mate Jeff gives a hand to help a junior angler display a nice Black-fin Tuna caught during a rainy May afternoon. Now is the time for anglers to try their luck at landing one of these hard fighting fish.

Night time anglers caught these nice King Mackerel and VIP angler Fredd was very happy to bring home a 49 pound Cobia caught on the 1st of June. There have been quite a few large fish hooked during the evening trips but beware of the hungry sharks looking to make an easy meal of your catch.

Another afternoon trip produced Cobia, King Mackerel, Yellow-tail Snapper and other bottom fish. The smiles say it all!

A June morning trip with Black-fin Tuna, King Mackerel and Cobia being the heavyweights of the trip. Other anglers also bagged Vermillion Snapper, Red Porgies and Gray Triggerfish.

DSCF0185VIP anglers Johnathan and Brandon show off their night-time Cobia. Other anglers brought home snapper and King Mackerel during the trip. With the summer heat preparing to come on full force, night fishing is the coolest trip and with the evening trip leaving at 6:30 pm, it makes fishing convenient for anglers after working all day.

DSCF0165Summer-time is just around the corner and the Lady K is sailing three trips daily. No reservations are needed. Tickets are sold in the new marina store, Bar Jack’s Fish Tales, your one stop shop for everything you will need while on your four-hour offshore excursion aboard the Lady K. Anglers can even have their catch cooked for lunch at the Kona Bay Cafe after a morning filled with sunshine and fresh ocean air. Gift cards are also available for Father’s Day, the perfect gift for the very special man in your life!

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

DSCF0143

 

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.

Fishing on the evening trips have been productive for some anglers. The 17 pound Cubera Snapper pictured above inhaled a ballyhoo fished along the bottom while the King Mackerel pictured below choose a drifted sardine fished in the middle of the water column.

DSCF0121

The afternoon trips have seen anglers taking some nice Cobia up to 48 pounds along with a mix of King Mackerel, Triggerfish, Snapper and the occasional Mahi Mahi.

DSCF0115

Junior anglers have been having fun catching large fish like the Little Tunny pictured below. Children fishing with bottom rigs have been catching a wide variety of tropical reef fish, triggerfish, jacks, grunts, snapper, grouper and “hotdog” fish.

Don’t miss the boat! The weather has been perfect with light winds and calm conditions in the mornings. The afternoon seabreeze is very cool and for anglers who don’t want to much sun, try an evening trip where you and your family or friends can watch a magnificent sunrise. Now open – Bar Jack Fish Tales Marina Store – located right at the dock – Snacks, Drinks, Clothing, Sunscreen, Bait, Ice and Tackle all accessible for anglers before and after fishing aboard the Lady K.

VIP anglers Rob (l) and Mark (r) display two nice Cobia caught during a very recent afternoon trip on the Lady K.  Both fish slammed baits drifted just off the bottom. Although not very pretty by nature, these wonderful game fish make excellent table fare and can feed a small family for at least a week.

DSCF0054

This beautiful Coney Grouper (aka Strawberry Grouper) was caught and released due to the annual Shallow Water Grouper closed season. Grouper season will reopen on May 1st so anglers will be able to take grouper again as long as they meet the state’s recreational size limits.

DSCF0087

A member of the needlefish family, this Houndfish is just one of the many different fish species anglers may be able to catch during the spring and early summer migrations off the South Florida coastline. Houndfish can go up to six feet long and can be seen leaping across the surface of the ocean as they chase small baitfish.

DSCF0056

Don’t miss your chance to hook into a great time this spring and plan a trip aboard the Lady K. We supply everything you need for four hours of offshore exploration. No angling experience required, our crews will show you how and coach you through the fight, then they’ll fillet your catch back at the dock.  Good luck and tight lines!
