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.

Fish and Wildlife biologist collect data after an extraordinary afternoon catch of 90 Gray Triggerfish caught by anglers fishing aboard the Lady K during the final week of November. Gray Triggerfish are excellent table fare and will give any angler a terrific battle on any size tackle. One of the most common ways of catching Triggerfish is by using a bottom rig baited with cut squid although fish in the 4 to 8 pound range will take whole sardines fished on drift rigs.

VIP angler Danny has been doing fairly well catching Mutton Snapper like the 11 pound fish he is displaying above. His equation for catching these large snapper is fairly easy, the longer the string, the bigger the thing. Mutton Snapper are commonly caught by anglers using drift rigs around the reefs and local wrecks but a fair number of the fish are also taken by anglers using bottom rigs. Other snapper species that have been taken by anglers fishing aboard the Lady K last week include Yellow-tail Snapper, Lane Snapper, Mangrove Snapper and Schoolmaster Snapper.

Mahi Mahi, also know as dolphin, have been taken anglers who are willing to fish during choppy conditions. A very common food fish, the Mahi Mahi can grow as large as 80 pounds and feed on anything, including small sea turtles and seahorses. One of the best bets for Mahi Mahi is by using a sardine on a weighed knocker rig or by “free-lining” a bait far from the boat.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Saturday’s afternoon trip started December off  with Johnathan landing this 30 pound Amberjack he jigged up while vertical jigging aboard the Lady K over an area ledge off Boynton Beach. Other anglers caught Gray Triggerfish, Banded Rudderfish, Yellow-tail Snapper, False Albacore, Almaco Jacks and Red Grouper during the trip. Check out our entire site for more information on trips and rates. Anglers concerned about sea conditions can click on the NOAA link for forecast ocean conditions or contact us at (561) 588-7612 for current conditions. Fishing is a fun way to spend the day so come join us aboard the Lady K!

 

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.

 

VIP anglers Gerry (l) and Steve (r) display their catches of a Great Barracuda and Gag Grouper caught aboard the Lady K during a choppy morning trip. Gerry had a few grouper also but sharks managed to make a snack of the fish before they could be brought up to the gaff. Excellent job gentlemen!

Robbie displays a nice 20 pound Cobia that was caught during a rough afternoon trip aboard the Lady K. There have been plenty of small Cobia being caught along the reefs and wrecks in the area as well as fish up to 60 pounds being taken. Mahi Mahi continue to hit during the steady easterly winds along with King Mackerel, Snapper and other reef fish.

A rare look at a juvenile Tiger Shark as it swam around the boat during one of the Lady K’s morning trips. The shark stayed around the boat for 15 minutes so the crew decided to give the beautiful creature a handout a put a bonito to good use.

 This Tiger Shark measured between five to six feet and may have weighed between 75 to 90 pounds. Tiger sharks can grow to lengths of between 12 to 20 feet long with weights of  850 to over 1,400 pounds. They are the garbage cans of the sea, eating everything from sea turtles, sea snakes, sea birds and smaller sharks to metal cans and license plates.

 Tiger Sharks are responsible for a large percentage of fatal attacks on humans, although rare, and are regarded as one of the most dangerous sharks. Tiger Sharks are also one of most colorful sharks with their brownish-gray backs and white sides which are patterned with black dots and stripes just like a tiger. This feature also makes them a favorite for replica fish mounts since the species is threatened do to “finning”, where commercial fishermen cut off the fins to sell to the Asian markets for shark fin soup.

Along with rare sights such as these, anglers have been catching a few King Mackerel up to 20 pounds and the afternoon trips have seen several Sailfish releases this past week. A few Mahi Mahi have been showing up along the rail also during the afternoon trips with fish to 15 pounds. Bottom action is producing some Vermillion Snapper, Porgies, Gray Triggerfish and Jacks. So come on out, relax and enjoy a day on the water aboard the Lady K.

 

 This couple fished the Lady K during a recent night trip and caught a beautiful pair of King Mackerel weighing up to 17 pounds. Oh, by the way, her fish was bigger than his!

 King Mackerel have also been hitting fairly well during the morning trips as this experienced angler demonstrates. With the clear waters of summer, try using heavy fluorocarbon or mono leaders instead of wire.

 Junior angler Austin can sometimes be seen helping out along the rail and is proud to pose with his 26 pound King Mackerel caught during an evening trip.  Although the King Mackerel aren’t running as thick as they do during the spring, these summer time spawning fish are being caught on dead sardines by anglers fishing throughout the water column.  Our experienced crews are waiting to give you quick and easy instructions to bring out the angler in you and make it a great day on the Lady K.

 A big Yellow-tail Snapper brought a resplendent smile to one of the Lady K’s junior anglers, not to mention a wonderful dinner for mom to cook up. Our experienced crews strive very hard to help as many junior and lady anglers alike an opportunity to hook a catch of a lifetime or just that first ever fish no matter the size. It’s just what we do.

 A Banded Rudderfish, a member of the Jack family, will put up a hard battle for anyone and will bring big smiles of success with memories for a life-time. Kids, make sure you eat your spinach before trying to battle some of the big fish caught aboard the Lady K. Quality time with family or friends on the open ocean truly is what fishing’s about. Parents please be sure you have sunscreen for the kids and bring a camera to capture the action. Seize the day aboard the Lady K.

     Vermillion Snapper season re-opened April 1st and when the conditions are just right many anglers who are fishing on the bottom can catch their limit of these tasty fish in no time. The bag limit for Vermillion (also known as Red-eyes) is 5 fish per person per day and a size limit of 12 inches total length.

 Bottom fishing is still producing good numbers of Porgies, Grunts and Snapper such as the Yellow-tail Snapper shown above (center) in a heavily mixed basket. Night fishing has been producing Lane and Mangrove Snapper for many anglers wishing to beat the heat of the day-time trips.

 On their way to fishing many of Florida’s great fishing destinations, this couple fished aboard the Lady K during a recent morning trip and brought back a nice King Mackerel. One of the highlights of their trip was the 12 foot Hammerhead Shark that swam by the boat along with many sea turtle sightings.

  Sunday brought a sailfish release on the morning trip and three more hook-ups during the afternoon trip this past weekend giving everyone onboard a fantastic show of tail-walks, back-flips and greyhounding runs. Come on out to enjoy a short four-hour offshore excursion fishing under the Florida sun aboard the Lady K. Drop ’em down and catch ’em up.

 

 A flat ocean beckons beyond the raging surf at the Boynton Inlet during sunrise.

The captains wait for the sets of large swells to come through before plowing forward to the fishing grounds.

 This beautifully lit up sailfish was only about 36 inches and ate a sardine as it was being reeled in to the boat, as many species of fish are caught.

The Lady K has had several sailfish releases this weekend like the estimated 75 pound fish pictured above.

 King Mackerel and Mahi Mahi continue to bite beyond the rough surf, bringing smiles and great memories to anglers like the couple pictured above.

 This young angler had a big fight with a Cow-nosed Ray that hit a guppy rig baited with cut squid.

 At 70 feet, the Lady K and her experienced captains can get you out to the fish when many smaller vessels can not during rough ocean conditions. Always feel free to contact our captains at  561-588-7612   to check on up to date weather conditions and if the Lady K will be sailing during very adverse conditions. This week should prove interesting to see what the rough water has stirred up and uncovered so don’t miss the bus, come sail with us today aboard the Lady K.
