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!



Snappers, cobia, and kings were brought to the dock as the seas are starting to pick up fpr the oncoming front.  The cobia weighed in at 27 lbs. 




Anglers fishing during the evening trips have been catching anything from Snapper and Bluefish to King Mackerel and Black-fin Tuna like the 40 pound fish pictured above. With the additional sunlight in the late afternoon, anglers can enjoy a cool transition from the warmer afternoon, into the tranquil sunset and cooler evening hours. Children can have a blast fishing for Lane Snapper, Gray Snapper and Grunts fishing a bottom rig while mom or dad enjoy taking on the bigger game while drifting a sardine or goggle-eye. Please note that no alcohol is allowed during the evening trips. Come on out and catch a good time fishing aboard the Lady K tonight, tomorrow or today!

VIP angler Dick caught this nice King Mackerel along with a variety of bottom fish including from left to right, Red Porgies, Vermilion Snapper and a large White-bone Porgy. The fish were caught during an afternoon trip while the Lady K drifted over various water depths. Keep up the excellent work Dick!

Lee also hooked up on a nice King Mackerel while fishing during an afternoon trip. King Mackerel seem like they are starting to move through the area with fish from 10 to 25 pounds being caught by anglers fishing sardines far away from the vessel. King Mackerel are large near coastal pelagic predators which feed on a variety of fish such as sardines, pilchards, blue runners and bluefish but will also eat squid and live shrimp. Many anglers can also catch King Mackerel while jigging vertical jigs, buck-tail jigs tipped with a sardine or while slow trolling spoons. These toothy predators have razor-sharp teeth so please only allow our experienced crews to gaff and handle your fish while on the Lady K.

Night fishing for King Mackerel has also been picking up with the fish chewing fairly well just after dark. Before dusk there is also the possibility of a Cobia or Black-fin Tuna that may stray through the lines. Will you be the lucky angler to hook such a fish? Should you and your family or friends be interested in one of our nightly fishing excursions, be at the dock by 6:00pm to buy your tickets, the boat leaves at 6:30pm and returns at 10:30pm. Ladies and children may wish to bring some light outer wear for these cooler night trips.

As more King Mackerel start to migrate through the home waters of the Lady K, keep a sharp eye out for pods of porpoise who also like to dine on the mackerel, especially one that is hooked. The Lady K sails three times daily – morning, noon and night – pick the one that’s right. Also don’t forget that BarJack Fishing still offers gift cards for the Lady K at the ticket window. Gift cards are perfect for birthdays, employee bonuses or for children off during holidays and summer. Quit wishing and go fishing today aboard the Lady K!

This 17 pound Cubera Snapper gave Mark an incredible battle to the boat during a recent night trip aboard the Lady K. The fish measured just over 33 inches and ate a cut bait fished on the bottom in 55 feet of water. A superb catch from the waters off Boynton Beach – congratulations on a wonderful catch!!

 Lady K junior angler Dylan hooked, fought and landed this 25 pound King Mackerel during an afternoon trip while fishing with his family. This is Dylan’s second greatest catch with his first being a King Mackerel over 20 pounds caught on a light spinning rod using a squid tipped jig for Yellow-tail snapper. Excellent job Dylan, keep up the good work – both at school and on the fishing grounds!!

 Although the Lady K will be in the yard for maintenance this week (September 19th thru the 23rd) but The Florida Fishing Academy will be available to take out passengers sailing from the Lady K slip during this time.  Space is limited and will be on a  first come first serve basis and trips will be sailing during normal hours of operation (8am-12pm & 1pm-5pm). The Lady K is scheduled to be back in the water for September 24th and ready to fish starting at 8am – we hope to see you there!


 Not only new to fishing but also allergic to seafood, Nya shows she has what it takes to catch nice fish, like her seven pound Mangrove Snapper caught during a June night trip. The fish measured 25 inches and ate a half sardine as soon as the bait hit the bottom.  She has also caught her first Mahi Mahi and King Mackerel while fishing with the crews of the Lady K this summer. She has taken all of her fish while using her own 25 pound test spinning outfit. Spectacular job Nya!!

Night fishing has produced Lane Snapper, Mutton Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Yellow-tail Snapper, Grunts, Porgies and an occasional King Mackerel during the last week. Be sure to pack a rain suit or poncho in case the late afternoon thunderstorms decide to hang around after dark. Don’t forget that the Fourth of July is coming up and one of the best places to view the fireworks all along the coast is while fishing offshore. Please call ahead for parking designations and directions to the dock.  BarJack Fishing and the crews of the Lady K wish everyone a very Happy and Safe Fourth of July!!


 King Mackerel and Cobia up to 35 pounds have been dominating the bite for anglers fishing during the 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm trips.

 With too many fish to hold, VIP angler Rojas stands next to his 36 pound King Mackerel and 20 pound Cobia while holding a couple of nice flag Yellow-tail Snapper he caught during a Thursday night fishing trip.

 The same trip shows a board with more fish than nails to put them on. Mutton Snapper, Yellow-tail Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, King Mackerel and Cobia have been feeding at all depths during the evening hours.

 Keep cool this coming summer by fishing either the afternoon or evening trips. The afternoon sea breezes will keep anglers cool while fishing on the shady side boat and protected from the sun. No matter what trip you chose to fish, the month of May has been producing pole bending action from Black-fin Tuna to Yellow-tail Snapper and everything in between. Tight lines and good fishin’.

 Night fishing has been producing catches of Mangrove and Lane Snapper along with Grunts, Jacks, Porgies and now with the arrival of larger gamefish will also be including King Mackerel and maybe a Cobia or two?
