Nothing is more exciting than dolphin fishing in Daytona Beach. Dolphins (or mahi-mahi) are one of the most stunning sports fish caught off the coast of Daytona Beach. Mahi-mahi swims in schools, which means that there are always a few around when you see one. We frequently have three or four on our lines at one time, and these beautiful fish leap and jump out of the water in a spectacular display of acrobatics.
Our Daytona Beach fishing charters find dolphin farther offshore near the weed lines and snacking on their favorite flying fish. We target them in season (which starts in May and ends in October) during our longer trips, and we catch them while trolling or kite fishing. This allows us to reach their waters and troll in their hunting grounds. Our Daytona Beach fishing captains prefer using ballyhoo to bait them with, and they know which signs to look for when chasing them (such as birds, which are a great indication that dolphin are nearby).
Mahi-mahis are easy to identify. Their gorgeous bright yellow bellies are very well complimented by their green and blue fins, and they have unique blunt-shaped heads with a narrowing body shape. Typically, Daytona Beach dolphins weigh between 15lbs and 30lbs.
All our Daytona Beach fishing crews specialize in mahi-mahi fishing. Their knowledge is continually shared with everyone onboard their fishing boats. They will help you to catch a legal size dolphin that you can take home for dinner. These magnificent fish have a white meat that is truly tasty, and is absolutely delicious in tacos.
