Andy (r) and team bobber took this nice cow Mahi Mahi during a morning trip aboard the Lady K. April and May are the typical months for the larger Mahi to start showing up.

Jarrod (c) caught first wahoo while fishing aboard the Lady K on April’s Fools day. He also managed to bring home a few nice Vermilion Snapper, Red Porgies and Gray Triggerfish while fishing the deep water. Other anglers also caught Yellow-eye Snapper and released some large Red Grouper.

Cobia continue to surprise anglers as the Lady K drifts over the local wrecks and large Bull Sharks. These fish will eat baits fished anywhere in the water column. Although most fish are caught by anglers fishing at or near the bottom, they will occasionally ambush a bait from under boat while its descending.

Captain James has been bringing out the big guns and letting the kids fight Bull Sharks up to the boat where visitors can take a few photos before the fish are safely released to fight another day. Nice work Captain JJ!

Night fishing has been a family affair. VIP angler Mark brought the kids out for some fun fishing quality time. The family caught Mangrove Snapper, Lane Snapper, Porgies and Triggerfish while drift fishing and using bottom rigs.

The Lady K sails three times daily and no reservations are needed. Florida is the fishing capital of the world which makes it the perfect place to explore with family and friends alike.BarJack Fishing and the Lady K drift fishing vessel is located in historic downtown Lantana on the west side of the Lantana Bridge (currently closed for construction which makes it easy to find ample parking) right behind the Kona Bay Cafe and Sushi Bon restaurant. Anglers coming from South Palm Beach or Manalapan should take the detour through Lake Worth (over the Lake Worth Bridge) and travel south on Dixie Highway to Ocean Ave. and into downtown Lantana. Thank you for visiting and fishing aboard the Lady K.

 It was a busy  morning for this group of anglers last Tuesday. Despite fighting plenty of False Albacore they found enough energy to land King Mackerel to 20 pounds, release a Sailfish, boat a Greater Amberjack of 34 pounds and also placed some fine eating Cero Mackerel in the cooler along with a few Yellow-tail Snapper. Congratulations on a wonderful catch folks!

VIP angler Mark displays his 31 pound Black-fin Tuna caught during an overcast and stormy afternoon trip. The fish was one of three hooked while anglers were fishing deep for King Mackerel off Boynton Beach using dead sardines. These tuna generally run with the False Albacore and will make a long, fast run followed by a series of slow and deep circles on their way back to the boat. What a fun fish to fight and a delightful dish for the dinner table.

 A light crowd during this night trip had plenty of action with two Black-fin Tuna, a Great Barracuda release, a Sandbar Shark release and King Mackerel to 30 pounds. All the fish were taken on boat rods rigged with one ounce knocker rigs and baited with sardines. Everyone had a great time catching fish while witnessing the marine life that swam around under the lights of the Lady K, something you don’t see everyday.

 A thumbs up for a catch of a lifetime caught aboard the Lady K.

Other catches this week also include a few Cobia to 25 pounds, Yellow-tail Snapper, Mutton Snapper, Mangrove Snapper and Almaco Jacks. The Lady K has also had several Sandbar Shark releases between 100 to 300 pounds caught on sardines. Our experienced crews will not only help teach you how to use the fishing equipment but also assist in helping you to land your catch.  The Lady K is an open boat so no reservations are needed, just plan which trip fits your schedule best and show up at the dock, we’ll do the rest.

 

 The fishing was good for many anglers who fished the three daily trips of the Lady K this past Memorial Day weekend. Morning trips have been producing King Mackerel, Black-fin Tuna, Snapper and fish like the hard fighting African Pompano pictured above.

 During some of the afternoon trips, Dorado (aka Dolphin or Mahi Mahi) have been showing up and when a school of these colorful fish show up there is sure to be some excitement. Most of the Dorado have been schooling sized fish in the 4 to 6 pound class. Use either a small chunk of bait on a single hook or a triple hooked sardine with the tail cut off and fished close to the boat for a chance to land one of these delicious fish.

 There are still some toothy critters on and around the reefs where the Lady K fishes. Great Barracuda like the one pictured above will not only eat your Snapper or King Mackerel while your fighting it to the boat, but also hit triple hooked sardines and can give an awesome battle including aerial displays.

 The morning and evening trips have been the best bet for anglers hoping to land Black-fin Tuna. Although sharks remain a nuisance, the Lady K has brought back a few whole Tuna to the dock this week. Most of the Tuna bite has been during the evening trip just before or right after dark. Remember to let these fish pull drag during their initial run because trying to stop one of these brutes will only result in a broken line.

  Cobia action has continued with the fish surprising anglers during any one of the three trips and feeding at various depths. Although conditions are constantly changing, the fishing report for all three trips has King Mackerel feeding heavy in the morning and evening, Snapper feeding throughout the three trips with quite a few Yellow-tail snapper being caught during the afternoons, Black-fin Tuna feeding morning and evenings and False Albacore feeding both morning and afternoon, Cobia have been caught during any trip and with the steady east breeze the outlook for continued Mahi Mahi action could be very favorable.

 The crews of the Lady K hopes everyone had a very happy and safe Memorial Day weekend and we salute all of our veterans for your service to our country. Thank you!
