Dolphinfish Fishing is Staying Strong
Where Were Finding the Fish
How We Are Catching Them
Trolling rigged Ballyhoo and small feathers are the best baits to pull over long stretches of water trying to locate Mahi Mahi Dolphin fish. Once we locate fish we switch tactics to casting small live baits, cut bait or jigs to catch Summer Mahi Dolphin Fish. My favorite little secret id to “Make Bait” or catch live bait out in the fishing grounds. We will stop on the first large floater or weed patch we find and chum the water and use Sabiki rigs to catch bait. Small Blue Runners are my favorite, but all the small bait fish that you find out there works well.
20 pound spin tackle with short 50 pound leaders and a 5/0 to 7/0 hook work well. I like larger hooks with a longer shank best. It helps keep the smaller school fish off the hook and makes de-hooking caught fish easier.
