Dolphin (Mahi) Fishing in Florida
Dolphin Fishing (otherwise known as mahi mahi) fishing is a great recreational sport fish. Most fisherman will agree there isn't a prettier fish. Dolphin fish have bright gold bodies with a green and blue color. Males tend to grower larger than the females. The males are called bulls and the females cows. Florida is a hotspot for dolphin fish due to the warm waters and ever present food source made up of fish, crabs, and squid. When we see floating seaweed off the coast of Florida we know there is a good chance we can find mahi mahi beneath it. Birds feeding in the water is also a tell tale sign that dolphin fish might be around because where we find bait fish we find the larger fishing feeding on them. As soon as we hook a dolphin there's always a possibility the fish is going to put on a show by jumping right out of the water. It's an impressive sight to see a fish that can grow up to 80 lbs breach the surface of the ocean effortlessly. Down here in South Florida, we really enjoy our dolphin tacos or a nice dolphin reuben.
