About Mahi Mahi Fishing

Mahi Mahi, or Dolphinfish, is a popular game all over Florida. Its vibrant colors and energetic behavior attract anglers of all expertise. It’s also known as the Dorado and is usually found in waters with warmer temperatures (between 70°F to 85°F), like Miami and areas like Biscayne Bay. Their distinctive body makes it a one-of-a-kind catch that any angler who travels to Miami, Florida, wants to catch. Some unique features of Mahi Mahi fishing include:

  • They have a rapid growth rate and can weigh up to 30 pounds or more, making them an exciting and challenging catch because of their sheer size.
  • They’re composed of dazzling colors like bright greens, blues, and yellows, so they stand out in Miami waters.
  • They’re acrobats, strong, and swim fast, so if you’re looking for a challenging fish to catch, Mahi Mahi is certainly one of the top choices for any angler.
  • They’re opportunistic feeders and attracted to various types of baits and lures.
  • They’re more active during daylight hours, so we suggest booking a day charter.

Mahi Mahi Fishing Regulations in Florida

The Atlantic Coast is riddled with this popular Dolphinfish. Local Florida state regulations limit the amount of Mahi Mahi that can be caught and the size permitted per catch. These are the local state regulations:

  • Maximum size limits:20” fork length
  • Daily Recreational Bag Limit:5 per person or 30 per boat
  • Daily For-Hire Recreational Bag Limit:5 per person. Limited to number of customers multiplied by bag limit (i.e: if our boat has 3 customers, the bag limit is 15).

  • In tropical and subtropical regions like Florida, Mahi Mahi is more common during Spring and Summer.
  • They enjoy prey like flying fish, squid, small fish, and crustaceans, so these make for effective baits.
  • Trolling is a popular technique for mahi-mahi fishing because of the depth variation, so casting to floating debris or weed lines increases the chances of catching this game.

Mahi Mahi Fishing Techniques

Some popular Mahi Mahi fishing techniques, particularly on the Atlantic coast, include some of the following: 


Fishing Element What To Use Why?
Technique High-Speed Trolling Mahi Mahi are known for their speed, and high-speed trolling covers a larger area for them to strike. 
Bait  Live bait like small fish or squid Mahi Mahi are opportunistic feeders that feed on small things like squid, small fish, and other bait.
Casting On weed lines or floating debris Mahi Mahi is often associated with floating objects like sargassum weed lines and debris.
Lures Brightly colored skirted trolling lures  Brightly colored bait mimics the colors of flying fish or other natural prey and attracts Mahi Mahi.
Time of Day  Early morning and late afternoon Mahi Mahi are more active during the day, so these times are best for catching these coveted fish.
Rods  Medium to heavy specialized trolling rods  These rods are designed to handle the stress of trolling multiple lines and Mahi Mahi speed.
Reels  Conventional lever drag reels for trolling or a spinning reel with a smooth drag system It has a good line capacity to handle the potential long runs of Mahi Mahi.
Lines  High-test braided line (around 30-50 lbs or more) The thin diameter of braided lines increases the reel’s line capacity.
Hooks Circle Hooks or J-Hooks are high-quality and corrosion-resistant  Circle hooks are known for hooking fish in the corner of the mouth, reducing the risk of deep hooking.
Wire-Leaders Short wire leaders (12-18 inches) or daisy chains Mahi Mahi has sharp teeth and can easily cut through monofilament or fluorocarbon leaders.
