 Jay Mesnekoff of Boynton Beach, Florida was rigged and ready when a school of dolphin or mahi mahi, showed up at boat-side while the Lady K was fishing for vermillion snapper. Mr. Mesnekoff used a light spinning outfit and a chunk of sardine to toss at the fish while the school swam around the Lady K. A total of 4 fish were taken from the school of six and Mr. Mesnekoff displays the beautiful Bull or male dolphin, which weighed in just under 10 pounds. Wonderful catch Jay!

 Large kingfish are still making a showing off the coast of Lake Worth and Boynton Beach. Nu Nguyen of Lake Worth, Florida caught this 26 pound “smoker” kingfish while fishing a triple hooked sardine on a knocker rig. The fish was caught in deep water near the end of a drift, eating Mr. Nguyen’s bait while he was reeling in. Kingfish love moving baits and will quite often hit a bait while it’s being deployed or while reeling in. Jigging your bait softly will also entice one of these speedy torpedoes to hit a bait, making fast runs of up to 30 MPH, therefore it’s imperative that your drag is set properly.

  Kingfish migrate up and down the Florida coast year-long. They have a preference for water temperatures above 68 degrees F. Kingfish migrate south in the winter and back north during the spring. Kingfish spawn during the summertime, both in the Atlantic and off the Gulf of Mexico. They are common to 20 pounds and the Florida state record is 90 pounds. They may attain a length of 5 to 6 feet. Their diet consist mainly of fish, squid and shrimp. Kingfish have amazing speed and jaws lined with razor teeth. They are a good food fish which can be grilled, fried or baked when under 10 pounds. The larger fish are commonly smoked and processed into dip.

 Every day is a new adventure offshore, bringing surprise catches and sometimes rare sightings of endangered marine wildlife. Seize the day and plan your trip aboard the Lady K.

 We have seen some very strong easterly winds this week, kicking the seas up while also pushing the warmer Gulf Stream waters closer to our shores. Along with the Gulf Stream water, floating debris such as bamboo sticks and light patches of Sargassum weed are being pushed in and under this lurk the Mahi mahi, also known as dolphin, dolphinfish and dorado. Dolphin are a beautiful fish with a multitude of colors, a strong fighting ability including sizzling runs and spectacular acrobatics. A trophy gamefish by all standards.

 On Thursday, October 16 th, the anglers who fished aboard the Lady K found a brisk, cool breeze and moderate 3 to 5 foot seas to greet them after passing the north jetty of the Boynton Inlet. Captain Allan motored the Lady K out into the deep violet waters in search of snapper and other pelagic gamefish species……

Artie Cushman of Palm Springs, Florida (L) and Norm Levenson of Boynton Beach, Florida (R) both caught this beautiful pair of Mahi mahi or dolphin. Mr. Levenson caught his 28 pound cow dolphin using a 20 pound spinning outfit while free-lining a sardine and Mr. Cushman used a 25 pound test conventional outfit while also free-lining a triple hooked sardine to land his 30 pound bull dolphin.

 Both fish were caught during the morning or 8 to 12 trip along with catches of kingfish, vermillion snapper, Triggerfish and other bottom fish. With the brisk winds, it’s imperative to make sure you have a good amount of line out to hook into these fish. Although it’s not uncommon for dolphin to make a showing right in front of the boat, where their flashing blue, green and yellow colors will astound you in the deep, clear violet water.

Chuck Kinser of Lake Worth, Florida (L), Artie Cushman of Palm Springs, Florida (C) and Tri Nguyen of Boca Raton, Florida (R) caught these dolphin while fishing on the afternoon or 1 to 5 trip. Mr. Nguyen caught his 8 pound bull dolphin while using one of the boats rods rigged with a one ounce knocker rig and triple hooked sardine. Mr. Cushman fished with us again in the afternoon and landed his 6 pound cow dolphin using the same technique that worked for him during his earlier trip. Mr. Kinser caught his cow dolphin while using one of the boats rods rigged up with a 3/4 ounce knocker rig and triple hooked sardine. All three of the fish were caught around a floating bamboo stick and all three anglers had at least one hundred yards or more of line out when the fish ate their baits. Great job gentlemen!

 The afternoon trip also had one more small dolphin follow a bait up to the boat (without eating) and two larger dolphin, in the teen to twenty pound class, which showed up just feet from the boat but ignored the baits that were around them. Well, that’s fishing, but a good show none the less. Again, Captain Allan put us on the vermillion snapper…….

 Bob Sang of Lake Worth, Florida caught his limit of snapper while fishing on the bottom using cut squid. The vermillion snapper are a beautiful deep, cold water snapper with a very mild flavor. Their diet consist mainly of small fish, crustaceans and invertebrates. When the conditions are right, our captains can place the boat right over the fish so anglers can pull up two fish at a time for a fresh and tasty dinner after the days adventure.

 Stop on down to the dock and check out our catches, say hello to the captains and crew or ask about our VIP and group rates. We are looking forward to helping you enjoy an offshore experince of a lifetime!
