The mahi-mahi fish, also known as the common dolphinfish is a strong, yellow, ray-finned fish found in tropical and subtropical waters. Dolphins (which are mammals) are not related at all to this fish, which is why most people call it mahi-mahi to avoid confusion. Mahi-mahi is a Hawaiian word that means super strong, in Spanish it’s also called dorado which translates to golden.

Why we love the Mahi-Mahi
If you’re in Miami, don’t miss out on this fishing experience. This specie is a fun catch due to their acrobatic abilities. While they’re a relatively easy catch, finding them is more difficult. But don’t worry, patience is a virtue and with this fish, it’s worth it. Don’t be surprised if you run into a school of dolphinfish, they’re quite social and travel in schools.
This fish is especially abundant during spring and summer. Birds can guide you to a school of mahi-mahi, as well as floating debris. You can use either live bait or dead bait as they feed on smaller fish and crustaceans. When you navigate with an experienced captain, you’ll be able to catch this beautiful fish. Swift and acrobatic, it’s no wonder this fish is so popular among anglers. Not to mention how delicious it is!
