Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) Fishing in Florida

Dolphin fishing in Florida is something anglers of all ages and experience levels can enjoy. The southeastern part of the state offers swift access to the Gulf Stream, which is a mahi migration highway. They start moving southwards in November, passing Stuart and St Lucie's Inlet and can be found quite close to shore here until July. The big ones show up around April and they slowly start moving northwards in June, but stick around the south part of Florida, especially the Keys, until September.

The average catch size will be 10-20lbs, the bigger ones are 20-30lbs and bulls up in the 50-60lbs range are not unheard of.

What People Are Saying About Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) Fishing in Florida

"Captain Jeff"

Kevin Stack fished with Leisure Life Charters on May 23, 2019

Great trip experience!! Great Day to be out on the water for some fishing! Equipment worked wonderfully. Captain Jeff knew his fish and made sure our hook had its shrimp bait. Not at all disappointed with our catch today. We didn't walk away empty handed plus had a dolphin great us on our way to the fishing hole. Thanks again Captain Jeff!!

"Half day trip with Captain Lance"

Andre Kraeuter fished with Fish Getter Charters on May 23, 2019

It was a great day fishing with Capt. Lance. We caught all sorts of fish, to name some, Ladyfish, Jack's, Sheapheads and even a Stingray. We had a Dolphin hanging out with us for quiet some time trying to snatch a free meal. All over a great experience and no matter if you a novice or more experienced, Captain Lance will ensure you have a great time fishing.

"Half day to with Captain Dwain and crew Rickey and Mark"

Thomas Fausel fished with Hook'N Up Sport Fishing on May 24, 2019

Great fishing boat. We caught a barricuda and dolphin fish. The ride was calm and the weather was beautiful. Six of us went and we all had a great experience. We would definitely do it again.
