What is mahi mahi in Miami all about?

Mahi-mahi, also known as dolphin fish or dorado, are a prized catch among anglers exploring the offshore waters of Miami. These colorful and fast-swimming pelagic fish are abundant in the warm waters off Miami's coast, especially during the spring and summer months. Mahi-mahi are often found near floating debris, weed lines, and offshore structures, where they congregate to feed on small fish, squid, and crustaceans. Their vibrant colors and impressive fighting abilities make them a favorite target for anglers seeking thrilling battles and delicious table fare.

One of the most popular techniques for targeting mahi-mahi in Miami is trolling. Anglers troll with brightly colored lures or rigged baitfish behind a moving boat, covering vast expanses of open water in search of these pelagic predators. Trolling allows anglers to cover a large area and present their baits at various depths, increasing the likelihood of enticing a strike from passing mahi-mahi. Anglers may also use outriggers to spread multiple lines across the water, maximizing their chances of attracting these fast-swimming fish.

Another effective technique for targeting mahi-mahi in Miami is casting or drifting with live bait or chum. Anglers deploy live baitfish or cut bait rigged on light tackle spinning or baitcasting gear and allow them to drift naturally with the current. Additionally, anglers may use chum to attract mahi-mahi to the vicinity of the boat, increasing their chances of encountering these pelagic predators. Once hooked, mahi-mahi are known for their acrobatic leaps and powerful runs, providing anglers with thrilling battles and unforgettable fishing experiences.

What are the most popular months to fish for mahi mahi in Miami?

In Miami, the prime season for targeting mahi-mahi typically aligns with the warmer months of spring and summer. During this time, water temperatures rise, and oceanic currents bring nutrient-rich waters closer to the coastline, attracting baitfish and other prey that mahi-mahi feed on. The spring and summer months also coincide with the annual migration of mahi-mahi along the Gulf Stream, a warm ocean current that flows near Miami's coast. As a result, anglers have a higher chance of encountering large schools of mahi-mahi during these seasons.

While mahi-mahi can be found in Miami's offshore waters year-round, their presence may be less predictable during the cooler months of fall and winter. As water temperatures drop, mahi-mahi may migrate to deeper offshore areas or follow warmer oceanic currents in search of optimal feeding grounds. However, sightings and encounters with mahi-mahi may still occur sporadically during the off-season, particularly during periods of favorable weather conditions and oceanic currents.

For anglers targeting mahi-mahi in Miami, staying informed about seasonal patterns, water temperatures, and oceanic currents can help increase their chances of success. During the prime season, anglers can expect more consistent sightings and encounters with mahi-mahi, providing ample opportunities for thrilling fishing experiences. Whether trolling with artificial lures, casting with live bait, or drifting with chum, anglers can enjoy the excitement of targeting mahi-mahi in Miami's vibrant offshore waters during the peak seasons.

What techniques are popular for catching mahi mahi in Miami?

When it comes to fishing for mahi-mahi in Miami's offshore waters, anglers have several effective techniques at their disposal. One popular method is trolling, where anglers tow brightly colored lures or rigged baitfish behind a moving boat. This technique allows anglers to cover large areas of open water, increasing their chances of encountering mahi-mahi. By varying trolling speeds and depths, anglers can effectively target mahi-mahi at different levels of the water column, from near the surface to deeper depths where they may be feeding.

Another successful technique for catching mahi-mahi in Miami is casting or drifting with live bait or chum. Anglers deploy live baitfish or chunks of cut bait rigged on light tackle spinning or baitcasting gear and allow them to drift naturally with the current. Additionally, anglers may use chum to attract mahi-mahi to the vicinity of the boat, increasing their chances of enticing a strike. This technique is particularly effective when fishing near floating debris, weed lines, or offshore structures where mahi-mahi are known to congregate.

Additionally, anglers targeting mahi-mahi in Miami may encounter schools of fish feeding near the surface. In such cases, anglers can cast small jigs or lures towards the feeding frenzy or use topwater lures to entice strikes from mahi-mahi. This technique requires accurate casting and quick retrieval to mimic the movements of fleeing baitfish, enticing mahi-mahi to strike. Overall, by employing a combination of trolling, casting, and drifting techniques, anglers can maximize their chances of success when targeting mahi-mahi in Miami's vibrant offshore waters.

What other species are popular in Miami?

Aside from targeting mahi-mahi, anglers exploring Miami's offshore waters have a wealth of other exciting species to pursue. One popular catch is the sailfish, known for its impressive speed and acrobatic leaps when hooked. Sailfish are abundant in Miami's offshore waters, particularly during the winter months, and anglers often target them by trolling with rigged baitfish or artificial lures. With their striking appearance and thrilling fights, sailfish provide anglers with memorable fishing experiences and the chance to land a trophy-sized catch.

Another prized species in Miami's waters is the yellowfin tuna, known for its impressive size, speed, and delicious flesh. Yellowfin tuna are commonly found in the offshore waters of Miami, particularly during the warmer months, and anglers often encounter them near offshore structures such as seamounts and oil rigs. Anglers target yellowfin tuna using a variety of techniques, including trolling with artificial lures, live baiting, and chunking. With their powerful runs and acrobatic leaps, yellowfin tuna provide anglers with thrilling battles and a tasty reward for their efforts.

In addition to sailfish and yellowfin tuna, Miami's offshore waters offer opportunities to catch a variety of other species, including wahoo, kingfish, marlin, and swordfish. Whether fishing from a boat, kayak, or offshore charter, anglers can enjoy the thrill of targeting a diverse range of fish species throughout the year. With its rich biodiversity and abundance of fishing opportunities, Miami remains a premier destination for anglers seeking unforgettable offshore adventures and the chance to land trophy-sized catches.

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

    I've been out on charters many, many times mostly down the east coast but also in Cabo. I must say the trip out with captain Manny is one of the two best trips out I've ever experienced. Her out is on fish, Jordan (the mate) ensured the rods and basis were correct and ready to catch fish. This was just a half day trip but next trip I'm going full day. Wow, I highly recommend Captain Manny!!!!! The catch highlights have to include the 54" barracuda and a 7' shark (it took two of us tag teaming and over 30 minutes to bring the shark alongside the boat for measurement.

    Jedidiah was unavailable to take us out fishing, but his friend Matt was able fill in. Matt was excellent company, very knowledgeable about fishing, and the various species within these waters.

    Taylor was amazing! He knew exactly what he was doing; the spots to go to, which bait to use to catch certain fish, and how to set up each individual line. He also knew when each line would be hooked or something was biting, even when we couldn’t see it. We ended up with one big catch that broke the line as we spent what felt like hours fighting it. Even though we didn’t end up feeling anything in, it was still a great experience out on the water, talking about a range of topics with Taylor. We would definitely come back and book with Taylor and Wicked Cuda again!

    Breyhauna J. with Taylor S. of Fort Lauderdale, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    I would 100% recommend a trip with Jedidiah. No doubt he knows the waters and how to get on the fish, but was also very good with our two younger anglers who had a memorable, successful and exciting experience. King Mackerel were biting and they were just a couple minutes off shore. Thanks Jedidiah and hope to book another one with you in the future!

    I would highly recommend fishing with George. He is super knowledgeable about the area fishing and he kept me busy catching fish. George is also just a cool dude who was fun to be around during and after fishing. His yacht club cooked up our fish after George cleaned them. It was great! We brought 5 fish in and put at least that many back in the water.
