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

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.

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.

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.

 

Matt (2nd from right) hooked and landed a beautiful 13 pound Red Grouper while bottom fishing and using a squid strip for bait. Other anglers took Mutton Snapper to 10 pounds along with King Mackerel, Porgies, Black-fin Tuna and a host of other reef fish during the morning trip. The afternoon trip brought back King Mackerel to 12 pounds, Gray Triggerfish and other reef fish.

 

Junior angler Dylan displays a big Mutton Snapper caught while spooling a thread-fin herring across the bottom. The best bet for a family with small children is to bottom fish using cut squid. Fishing in this manner will produce many different species of colorful reef fish (have a camera ready) as well as larger predators like Grouper, Snapper, Cobia, Amberjack and even Sailfish have been caught by anglers using bottom rigs aboard the Lady K.

Monday’s morning trip was overcast and breezy but produced this nice Mutton Snapper and King Mackerel. There were some small Red Grouper releases, a small Cobia release and False Albacore releases. The Lady K also promotes catch and release fishing, so should an angler not be interested in keeping their catch, please inform the crew so they can handle the fish as quickly as possible for a successful release.

 

A nice haul of fish including King Mackerel, Mutton Snapper, Yellow-tail Snapper, Triggerfish, Barracuda along with a sailfish, a cobia and many Red Grouper releases kept anglers busy during the afternoon trip mid-week. The fish were caught on a variety of rigs, baits and lures during the four hour trip off the Boynton Inlet. The best part of it is watching the junior anglers battle their fish. Excellent work anglers!

The Lady K is back in the water with fresh paint that’s just begging to get fishy. Her cockpit has been modified to allow for even more fish-ability, the engines have been updated and tuned as well as the addition of upgraded safety features. The Lady K will be sailing this weekend starting Saturday morning so come on out and get her fishy again as we search for snapper, mahi mahi, sailfish, wahoo, mackerel, grouper and all the other denizens of the deep. Hope to see you there!

 

Brandon (r) caught his second Wahoo this week on a triple hooked drifted sardine. The fish was 56.5 inches and weighed in at 33 pounds. A second Wahoo was hooked at the same time but managed to shake the hooks free before coming up within gaffing range. Congratulations on your second Wahoo catch aboard the Lady K Brandon!

 

Night fishing has been producing King Mackerel and a few nice Mutton Snapper like the one captain James is displaying for one of the Lady K”s junior anglers.Smaller Lane and Mangrove have also been coming aboard by anglers using bottom rigs and cut squid or bonito for bait.

 

First time anglers show off their Cobia caught during a recent morning trip. Cobia are excellent table fare and can be caught year round throughout the Lady K’s home range.

 

VIP angler John C. shows off a nice summer-time King Mackerel caught during one of this weeks afternoon trip. Along with the King Mackerel, other fish like the Bonito or False Albacore, have been keeping anglers busy along the rail during all three of the Lady K’s daily trips.

 

Lionfish, like the ones pictured above, are an invasive species to the reefs along the South Florida coast. These fish are also very venomous and should only be handled by the crew members on the Lady K, as well as all fish species.

Fishing is great opportunity for family and friends to get together while enjoying a day on the turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean.  Set out a bait, kick back, relax and see what wonder may come up after tugging your line.

Levay bagged his nice Mutton Snapper and Black-fin Tuna while fishing during a morning trip aboard the Lady K. The mornings are bringing mixed catches of fish like False Albacore (bonito), Snapper, Triggerfish, King Mackerel, large Jacks such as Almaco and Amberjack along with some Shark releases. The water has been “gin clear” with some days allowing anglers 100 foot visibility through the glass smooth surface before the late morning breeze picks up.

 King Mackerel have been hitting well during the afternoon trips along with Yellow-tail Snapper, False Albacore, Cero Mackerel, Porgies and the occasional Great Barracuda. The afternoon trips offer a nice breeze while fishing on the shady side of the vessel. Afternoons have been the best bet for anglers looking to take home some Yellow-tail Snapper fillets. Yellow-tails can be caught while fishing with sardines spooled along the bottom using the boat’s rods or by anglers using light spinning outfits and small jigs specifically made for Yellow-tail Snapper.

Evening trips offer anglers a cooler alternative with a chance to catch King Mackerel, Mangrove Snapper, Lane Snapper, Yellow-tail Snapper, Mutton Snapper, Porgies, Grunts and sometimes a sunset Sailfish. Beginners and fishing families are always welcome. Our crews will teach you how to use the equipment and offer tips on techniques for better fish catching results. So plan a trip today aboard the Lady K.

 

The end of July continued to bring a few nice Black-fin Tuna aboard the Lady K for anglers lucky enough to elude the False Albacore onslaughts during the morning and evening trips. The Black-fin Tuna continue to roam around the area reefs with most of the fish averaging in the eight pound range. Nothing beats fresh grilled tuna for an end of summer barbecue.

The evening trips have been seeing some nice King Mackerel and Snapper action as the full moon approached earlier in the week. Anglers fishing long lines and softly jigging their baits have been the most successful.

VIP angler Johnathan used a vertical jig to subdue this beautiful Yellow Jack as the sun began setting on a recent evening trip. Yellow Jack are very good table fare and are commonly caught around reefs, ledges and wrecks on both artificial and drifted baits.

Anglers have also been catching Great Barracuda, Yellow-tail Snapper, Mutton Snapper, Mangrove Snapper and an occasional Sailfish during any of the Lady K’s three daily trips. With the summer nearing its end, now is the perfect time to get some quality time with the family before the school year begins. Don’t forget to check back here or on our Facebook page for more weekly savings coming your way aboard the Lady K.

 

One of three nice Cobia that came up by anglers fishing for snapper aboard the Lady K during a warm morning trip. Other anglers had their hands full when the False Albacore (a.k.a. Bonito) would run through the lines. Bonito are excellent fighting fish giving even seasoned anglers a run for their money. Although not very popular as table fare such as the cobia, bonito do make excellent bait when filleted out and used as strips or chunks for trolling or bottom fishing.

The smiles say it all! Fishing makes a perfect summer-time activity for families. It is relativity inexpensive, offers excellent quality time and very easy to learn for beginners. Children often benefit a sense of accomplish after catching even the smallest fish while bottom fishing where many anglers catch a wide variety of colorful reef fish, porgies and snapper. Our experienced captains and crew will help teach you how to use the tackle, bait your hooks if you desire and offer many helpful tips through the trip. Back at the cleaning station your captain will prepare your catch for the table and offer cooking tips to help in its preparation. Stay posted to both our website and facebook page for more great summer-time deals coming in the future weeks. We hope everyone has a very happy and safe summer!

 

These anglers took on rough seas and were rewarded with a nice catch of Mahi Mahi to 15 pounds, King Mackerel to 27 pounds, Skip Jack Tuna to 10 pounds, a Blackfin Tuna, False Albacore and a mixture of bottom fish. The catch took place during a morning trip aboard the Lady K. The afternoon trip found anglers catching more King Mackerel, releasing two Atlantic Sailfish estimated to weigh up to 50 pounds, Mutton Snapper to 4 pounds and released some small Cobia.

Stacey was visiting from New Jersey and decided to take a trip aboard the Lady K during the afternoon this past weekend. She hooked and landed her first ever salt-water fish with a little coaching from the crew, a nice Mahi Mahi. The professional crews of the Lady K will teach you how to use the equipment while offering tips or techniques in order to become a successful angler. Congratulations Stacey on your first salt-water catch, excellent work!!!

Our afternoon trips have also seen some Sailfish releases, catches of yellow-tail and Mutton Snapper, King Mackerel, Grouper, Mahi Mahi and other assorted bottom fish like Porgies, Grunts, Triggerfish and releases of Black Sea Bass. The few nights trips the Lady K has been able to get out on have produced some quality sized Lane and Mangrove Snapper, Bluefish, small Sharks, Grunts and Triggerfish.

So pick the trip that’s right for you. No reservations are required. Just show up at the dock around 45 minutes prior to the sailing time to purchase your ticket, chat with the locals and make some new fishing friends, for everyday is a great day aboard the Lady K!
