Miami dolphin – or mahi-mahi – is one of the most exciting and thrilling fish swimming in the waters off the coast of Miami. They are also among the most beautiful sports fish in the area. With bright yellow bellies that are exceptionally well complimented by their blue and green fins, this is easy to understand. They also have unique blunt-shaped heads with narrowing bodies, which make them easily recognized by anyone.
Our Miami fishing charters target dolphin in season (starting in May and ending in October), and on our longer trips. We keep an eye out for birds as they are a good sign that dolphin are nearby. Mahi-mahi are found close to the weed lines, and it takes us longer to reach their feeding grounds where we find them snacking on their favorite flying fish. Our Miami fishing captains use ballyhoo to bait them with, and we regularly have three or four mahi-mahi on our lines because dolphins prefer to swim together in schools.
Miami mahi-mahis are found ranging in size between 15lbs and 30lbs. We troll for them, and kite fishing has also proven enormously successful in catching them. Dolphin will leap and jump out of the water in an awesome display of agility when hooked on your lines. All of our Miami fishing captains specialize in dolphin fishing, and they will consistently share their knowledge and expertise with everyone onboard their fishing boats.
The tasty white meat of the mahi-mahi is absolutely divine. We highly recommend filling tacos with their flavor. Our Miami fishing charter crew will help you to catch a legal size dolphin to take home for dinner. Give us a call for the latest Miami dolphin fishing report.
