Also known as Mahi Mahi, the Dolphin is one of Florida’s most popular fish species and is one of our specialties. Enjoy a day of sunshine and tropical landscapes as you cruise around South Florida in a fishing charter with a small group.

We have great success fishing a good distance offshore and commonly use methods such as off shore trolling, running at 6–8 knots with 4 to 5 baits on the surface.

We constantly keep an eye out for debris on the water’s surface, such as seaweed patches, shipping debris, or even a single piece of floating wood. Mahi Mahi tend to both hide and hunt near debris as it offers shade and security to both them and their prey.

Mahi Mahi tend to run in schools when off-shore, and usually where we find one Mahi Mahi, we find a group. When we find a group of Dolphin, we stop the boat and bring in the trolling lines so customers can cast spinning rods and lighter tackle, which is where the fun really begins. When in a school of Mahi Mahi, live bait such as pilchards, goggle-eyes and blue runners provide the best results. When not using live bait, we use chunks of bait to chum the water and keep the Dolphin interested.
