Offshore Mahi Mahi

Watch The Colors Change When You Reel In This Gamefish

Sunday November 19, 2017

Mahi-mahi are one of the best tasting and most sought after gamefish in the world. When hooked they "light up" with bright blue green and yellow colors that are the envy of any other species.

Lagooner Charter Fishing Captains and Guides have developed time tested methods of trolling, sightfishing and live-baiting tactics to target these fast and agressive fish species. We generally target these fish in the months of May - June and then again in November and December. Remember that the fall is a tough month for recreational offshore fishing because of the winds and rough water, but the rewards for catching dolphin are tremdous for those fortunate enough to get a good day for offshore fishing for dorado off the coast of Central Florida.

OFFSHORE in warm waters in or near the gulf stream. Dolphin are migratory peligic fish that are found in every ocean in the world. They like to hang around floatsome and debre and are often found cruising large weedlines of sargasso seaweed or rip currents.

Months to pursue Dolphin
April - Big Fish Month
May - Loads of Mahi-Mahi
June - Smaller School Dolphin
November - Southward Migration

Remarks

One of the fastest-growing fish, thought to live no more than five years. A dorado is capable of a swimming speed of over 50 miles an hour. Dolphin spawn in warm ocean currents throughout much of the year where their young are found in sargassum weed and they feed on flying fish and squid.

Trolling is the most traditional way of catching dolphin, but we've found that sight fishing has been producing very well the last few years and gives anglers something to do rather than sit and wait for the bite.

Regulations

20" minimum to fork of tail, 10 fish per angler and not to exceed 60 per vessel possession limit.

State Record

77 lbs, 12 ozs.

Fishing Reports

November - 2017 Fishing Report

November in Central Florida can be an up or down proposition for fishing offshore as the nor-easterner's start to blow and seas pick up. However, it can be rewarding for anglers looking to cash in on the end of the fall mullet run for almost every type of nearshore species from jacks and snook to redfish and tarpon. If the temperatures and wind stay cooperative, look for nearshore to be productive, but if the seas get angry look inshore towards the lagoons for redfish, sea trout and possibly some snook action at Sebastian Inlet and the Indian River Lagoon. November is a Central Florida transition month so don't be surprised to see fish getting active and feeding heavily before the winter cool down when bait becomes less abundant and fish look to warm up on the shallow water flats later in the morning.
