Fast Facts to Know About Mahi Before Casting Your Line
Before hopping onto a Sundance Sportfishing charter, there are a few fast facts. Did you know there are a couple of signs that a Mahi school is nearby? If you spot birds hovering over the water, it can mean there are Mahi schools below. Another sign is floating debris, seaweed, or sargassum patches. These are like magnets for Mahi because they like to hang out around them.
When fishing for mahi, also known as Mahi-mahi, dorado, or dolphin fish, understanding their characteristics will help you have the most successful and enjoyable angling experience. Here are some key characteristics of mahi that you should know when fishing for them:
- Mahi have a streamlined and muscular body that allows them to be agile, strong swimmers. They know how to put up a fight!
- Mahi can rapidly change colors, especially during moments of excitement or stress. Experienced anglers use these color changes to gauge the fish's mood.
- Mahi are often found in schools, so when you find one, it can lead to multiple catches in a relatively short period of time. The excitement is reel!
- When mahi are hooked, they may leap out of the water, perform aerial flips, and exhibit other energetic maneuvers. It makes the thrill of the catch even better!
Book your Mahi Charter with Sundance Sportfishing and experience the excitement of watching these beautiful creatures as they move through the water. We are dedicated to providing an unforgettable adventure and the chance to reel in your own Mahi-mahi!
Mahi Bait, Tackle, and Lures - Oh My!
When it comes to Mahi-mahi fishing, selecting the right bait, tackle, lures, and techniques is crucial for a successful angling experience. But don’t worry; aboard our charters, we provide everything you need for a successful mahi fishing trip!
Here's a closer look at some of the ways we like to fish for mahi for the best results:
- Live bait: Mahi love live baitfish, such as small mackerel, ballyhoo, or sardines.
- Rods, reels, and lines: Medium to medium-heavy spinning or conventional tackle and monofilament or braided fishing line in the range of 20 to 50-pound is suitable for Mahi fishing - but don’t worry, we take care of supplying the proper gear!
- Trolling lures: Skirted trolling lures in vibrant colors like pink, blue, and green are effective for attracting Mahi because they mimic the appearance of small fish or squid and create enticing movements in the water.
- Trolling: Trolling at a moderate to fast pace is often a highly effective technique for Mahi fishing. The fishing lines are positioned at different depths to cover more area.
