Ladyfish provide great sport and action!

Some anglers look down on ladyfish, but they have saved many a charter, especially on a cold winter day.  They are aggressive and school up, so once located the action can be fast and furious.  There is no need for live bait with these fish, jigs will catch all you want.  They are also great sport on fly and a good fish to use to teach kids how to play a fish, as they almost always jump and make runs.  They are available year round in the bays and inshore Gulf that surround Siesta Key.  They have no value as a food fish.
