Mahi Mahi Fishing Miami for Dolphin or Dorado on The Spellbound
Mahi Mahi Fishing Miami is almost a year round staple. Although we do catch larger fish in the Fall and Spring. With that said the best action with Mahi Mahi fishing Miami is in the Summer. In the Summer months Mahi Mahi aka the Dolphin Fish school up in large numbers. Although the typical “schoolie”Mahi Mahi is about 4 – 10 pounds. In the Summer we will also on occasion find larger Mahi that are paired up. These larger fish may be up to forty pound or more.
In the Spring and Fall most of the fish we see are a bit larger and the schools have fewer fish in them. The Mahi or Dolphin Fish may be from about eight pounds to about twenty pounds in small schools. Whereas encounters with the larger paired fish may be more common.
Mahi Mahi Fishing Miami Where We Find Them…
In the summer we typically find Mahi Mahi in the off shore waters. Although Dolphin spend most of their time close to the surface, we will find them in water depths of 300 feet to over 2,000 feet. Off Miami and Miami Beach that is from about 3 miles off the coast to about 20 miles. And every where in between.
In the Spring and Fall we find Mahi Mahi typically closer to shore. We have caught Dolphin fish in as shallow as 40 feet in these months. Although most of the Mahi Mahi we find are on the edge of the Gulf Stream in about 100 feet of water, and on out to about 600 feet of water. That about one and a half miles to about three miles off Miami and Miami Beach.
We find Mahi Mahi under floating debris, Sargasso weeds, current edges and birds. Mahi Mahi are aggressive feeders and are always on the lookout for food. Therefore Anything floating on the surface will attract bait fish, shrimp and crabs. A large “floater” or patch of weeds will become an entire eco-system to its self. Dolphin fish will pursue bait fish violently, chasing them out of the water. Birds like Shearwaters, Gulls and Frigate Birds take advantage of the Mahi Mahi to catch bait fish. Its is so effective that Frigate Birds will follow Dolphin Fish for miles waiting for them to chase Flying Fish, Ballyhoo and other small bait fish.
