Christmas Eve's Eve Pompano

HUGE!

 The fish didn’t give anglers much of a break during a recent morning trip. Mutton snapper, kingfish, african pompano and assorted bottomfish were very eagar to inhale baits off Lake Worth.

A break in the weather brought these large kingfish and african pompano onto the Lady K’s deck. Plan a four hour offshore excursion this Spring Break or just visit at the dock to check out our daily catches when we return at 12 noon and 5 pm. All tackle, bait and licenses are included in the ticket price. Please feel free to use our contact page for information on private charters or general information.

 A double-header of African Pompano caught aboard the Lady K during a recent morning trip. African Pompano are a highly prized tropical gamefish with excellent table fair. Adults can grow up to 50 pounds and prefer to hold in coastal waters around reefs or wrecks. Juvenile fish are pelagic, drifting with the warm ocean currents.

 Although they can be caught year round, March and April are the spawning months for African Pompano, offering springtime anglers a chance to battle one of these beautiful gamefish. This 14 pound fish was caught over one of the area’s patch reefs and ate a dead sardine. Other gamefish being caught this week include kingfish, mutton snapper, bonito and sharks along with triggerfish and other assorted bottom fish.

  This is what it’s all about. Josh fished with his uncle Mike during a recent afternoon trip and caught this nice 24 pound kingfish by himself. A memory of a lifetime for sure!

 Josh and Johnnie show off their their catch of kingfish after fishing aboard the Lady K. Great job kids!

 The kingfish that are being caught range any where from 5 pounds upwards of 20 pounds plus and the season is just getting started. Plan a morning, afternoon or an evening trip today and hook into a great time.

 A beautiful Mutton snapper found it’s way home for dinner during one of our morning trips aboard the Lady K. Large mutton snapper can be difficult to find during the winter. Our experienced captains and their crew will put you on top of the fish and share their fishing techniques  should you ask for assistance. Plan an offshore excursion today aboard the Lady K.

 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.
