Tricks were used to catch these treats!

Kingfish, Cobia, and Mutton Snapper were around for the cold front last week. We hope to have you join us for any of our three daily trips. Please call our ship’s store at (561) 588-7612 for information or for reservations.

 

Bobby displays two beautiful Mutton Snapper he caught while fishing on the Lady K during Monday’s 1 pm to 5 pm trip. Also during the trip, an angler hooked into a large cobia only to lose the fish to a shark just under the vessel in gin clear water. King Mackerel and large porgies were also taken by anglers using thread-fin herring and cut squid for bait. Morning action has seen black-fin tuna, king mackerel, yellow-tail snapper, mutton snapper, small African Pompano releases and a host of various bottom fish.

 

Saturday’s afternoon trip found these Mutton Snapper in deep water where they preferred cut bait over whole ones. The evening trip had an excellent King Mackerel bite along with Lane Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, small sharks, Porgies, Grouper, Grunts and a Cobia release. The fall run of cobia should be starting up soon as November approaches along with mahi mahi action and some keeper sized African Pompano. The weekdays have been running with light crowds and taking some of the bigger fish so don’t delay and plan your trip today on the world famous Lady K.

 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!

Lady K mate, Chessy, works hard along the rail and is caught in the act of helping a customer bring his nice Mutton Snapper catch aboard where the fish will be iced down then prepared for the table back at the dock.

Lady K junior anglers Allie and Erin fished with their mom during an afternoon trip and showed all the guys how to catch fish. Here they display a wonderful catch of Yellow-tail Snapper, King Mackerel and a Black-fin Tuna. Excellent job ladies. Keep up the good work!

Some bigger Mahi Mahi have been showing up in the Lady K’s home waters. Jimmy displays a beautiful cow caught during an afternoon trip which ate a free-lined sardine. Most of the average Mahi are around five to six pounds but look for the larger fish in the 20 to 30 pound to be just outside or under the schools of smaller fish.

Cobia are still moving through the area and are being caught by anglers fishing near the bottom for snapper as well as near the surface by those trying their luck for Mahi Mahi and King Mackerel. The big fish are an excellent surprise for anglers looking to take home excellent table fare.

Mixed catches of fish should continue throughout May as fish continue to migrate through the area. Look for continued sightings of sharks, sea turtles and porpoise during your offshore experience aboard the Lady K. Be sure to bring plenty of sunblock for the family as we near the summer months or check out one of our 6:30pm to 10:30pm night trips for a cooler alternative. Thank you for visiting and fishing Florida, the fishing capitol of the world.

Mahi Mahi have been scattered this week and although commonly caught during the day-time trips, this junior angler proved Mahi will also bite at night. The fish ate a drifted sardine at 9:30 pm under the light of a full moon while other anglers fished for Cobia, Snapper and Bluefish. The best chances for anglers to catch Mahi during this time of year is during periods of choppy water during or after easterly winds help to blow in debris and weed-lines.

King Mackerel are still being caught throughout the Lady K’s home waters despite the weather conditions. Fish up to 30 pounds have been boated along with many releases of smaller fish. Anglers are also seeing a few Hammerhead and Bull Sharks as the large predators chase their mackerel up to the boat. Below the schools of mackerel many anglers are also catching Yellow-tail snapper, Gray Triggerfish and Jacks. The Lady K has also had a few Sailfish releases this past week by anglers who have been slowly reeling in their baits.

VIP angler Mark R. caught this nice Cobia while fishing during a choppy afternoon trip aboard the Lady K. The Lady K has been boating quite a few of these tasty game-fish the past week although the sharks seem to enjoy the same flavor as our anglers. Spring is a good time to start targeting Cobia along southern Palm Beach County and the fish may be caught during any three of our daily trips.

 

Shirlee shows off her limit of Snapper and some Banded Rudderfish after a fun night trip aboard the Lady K. She also released three Gag Grouper and a three-pound Black Sea Bass as well as plenty of smaller Jacks throughout the trip. Night fishing has been producing good catches of Bluefish, Mangrove Snapper, Lane Snapper, Gray Triggerfish, Banded Rudderfish, an occasional King Mackerel along with plenty of Grouper and Black Sea Bass releases.

Seasonal VIP angler Rick S. from Iowa caught his very first Mahi Mahi and matched it with a nice King Mackerel to start out the spring fishing season. Many anglers like Rick catch their first saltwater fish species while fishing aboard the Lady K. Our experienced crews offer free tips and techniques to anglers of all ages or skill levels.

Big bull Mahi like the one above should be more common as spring advances. Look for a few days of north-easterly winds and choppy conditions to increase your chances on battling one of these magnificent game-fish while fishing on the Lady K.

African Pompano are another hard fighting game-fish that should be coming around the areas local reefs. These large members of the Jack family are a species of Trevally. They make long, hard, fast runs when first hooked as they seek shelter along the bottom or around wrecks. Expect to catch these fish while letting out a sardine rig for their preferred food is small fish.

The perfect end to a beautiful day includes some fresh Mahi Mahi steaks on the grill after an afternoon trip aboard the Lady K. Anglers fishing on the morning trips can have their catch cleaned at the dock and cooked in the Kona Bay Cafe’ for lunch at a discounted price. For those who may be fishing the afternoon trip, try bringing your fresh catch to the Sushi Bon for an exotic dinner treat. Both restaurants are located less than 100 feet from the dock and are open seven days a week. Welcome to Florida, enjoy your stay as you spend some time fishing the Lady K.

Mate Joe helps display a nice Wahoo reeled in by a junior angler aboard the Lady K this week. The Wahoo have been hitting sardines up close to the vessel feeding upon sardines fished in a variety of different ways. These fast and toothy game-fish are excellent eating and February is one of the top months to try one’s luck at landing the tiger of the sea.

Cobia like this 23 pound fish continue to move through the area and also offer anglers some of the best in table fare. Cobia are commonly taken by anglers fishing with sardines yet due to their fondness of octopus, bottom rigs fished with cut squid are also produce good results.

Junior VIP angler Max H. caught and released this beautiful juvenile Snowy Grouper while doing a bit of deep-sea fishing aboard the Lady K. Among the host of bottom fish lurking in the deeper waters are Greater Amberjack like the one pictured below. Amberjack or AJ’s, are hard fighting fish that will take a wide assortment of dead and live baits as well as artificial lures.
