Anglers found some nice Mahi Mahi action last week during the choppy ocean conditions and brisk northeast winds. Fish up to 18 pounds were being landed by anglers fishing either one ounce knocker rigs or free-lining whole sardines. Anglers fishing bottom rigs and cut squid have been landing Gray Triggerfish up to 7 pounds as well as Yellow-tail Snapper, Lane Snapper, Red Grouper and an occasional Cobia.

 

Black and Gag Grouper have been showing up along the reefs and have been hitting Thread-fin Herring spooled along the bottom. It is quite a battle to keep these heavyweights out of the reef and then a bit of luck to reel them in past the sharks, who love to dine on the snow-white meat, but the rewards of getting a beautiful fish into the boat is well worth the effort.

 

VIP angler Mark boated this nice fall Cobia while fishing aboard the Lady K during Monday’s afternoon trip. The fish ate a whole Thread-fin Herring fished on the bottom. Mark also had some nice Grouper action but lost out to the sharks. Anglers have been catching a large variety of fish this week including Yellow-tail Snapper to three pounds, False Albacore, jumbo sized Gray Triggerfish, Porgies, Red Grouper, small Sharks, Mangrove Snapper, King Mackerel and a host of colorful reef fish.

The Lady K will be sailing for Thanksgiving Day and the day after. No reservations are needed, just come on down to the dock and buy your tickets, we supply everything you need for fishing and our crews will instruct beginners on how to use the tackle. BarJack Fishing also has gift cards available, the perfect gift for that very special angler in the family who loves to fish. We also offer a VIP program where anglers can prepay for eleven tickets at $300, that’s only $27.00 per ticket and a great savings! We hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving and an even happier Holiday season!

 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.

 While searching for King Mackerel and Snapper, the captains of the Lady K have been finding nice Cobia, a big surprise for some lucky anglers. The Cobia will often travel in pairs or small pods of a dozen fish or so. Having a bait close to the boat and jigged around a little could be just enough to entice a following fish to eat. Cold-weather Cobia always receive warm-hearted hugs back at the dock like the 45 pound fish pictured above.

 In addition to the passing of the cold fronts, the Lady K has been releasing quite a few Atlantic Sailfish this week. Fish up to seven feet long have been hitting sardines free-lined for King Mackerel by anglers fishing medium-heavy spinning tackle in the 15 to 25 pound line classes. Bottom fishing has been producing good numbers of Porgies, Gray Triggerfish and other reef fish while knocker rigs continue to jig up King Mackerel of  various weight classes.

 Come on out and cast a line for a chance to hook that catch of a lifetime. Our experienced crews will serve all your angling needs, from tying on rigs and baiting hooks to fishing tips and techniques. The low-cost of your four-hour excursion includes every you need for an enjoyable angling experience, just bring your favorite beverage and some snacks or grab a Fisherman Special to go from the Kona Bay Cafe located right at the dock. Have a great day fishing aboard the Lady K.
