Dolphin - Key West Fishing

Illustration of Dolphin from Key West Fishing Guide
Male "bull" dolphin have blunt foreheads, as illustrated above.

Known as "dorado" in Latin America and "mahi mahi" in the Pacific, the dolphin is one of the most colorful creatures found anywhere. When excited, these fish light up like a neon sign with brilliant blues, greens, and yellows.

Seemingly always ready to take a baited hook, spectacular leaps and stamina, and unbeatable as tablefare, the dolphin is a favorite of all salt water anglers.

These fish are caught in sizes ranging from 5 to 60 or more pounds. The smaller fish generally stay in schools of hundreds, whereas the larger ones travel in pairs or small groups. A large male is often found with one or two females.

In late spring and summer, floating boards or mats of sargassum weed, in or near the Gulf Stream, are favorite hangouts of these majestic fish.

Keys Fishing Fact
The Florida Keys are located in the most biologically diverse area of the Atlantic Ocean. Due to the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean sandwiching the islands, while the warm Gulf Stream current meanders close by, the ocean surrounding the Keys contains more species of fish than anywhere else in the Atlantic.
