Adventures Trolling For Dolphin Out In The Deep

Tuesday May 23, 2017

Mahi-mahi are one of the best tasting and most sought after gamefish in the world. When hooked they "light up" with bright blue green and yellow colors that are the envy of any other species.

Lagooner Charter Fishing Captains and Guides have developed time tested methods of trolling, sightfishing and live-baiting tactics to target these fast and agressive fish species. We generally target these fish in the months of May - June and then again in November and December. Remember that the fall is a tough month for recreational offshore fishing because of the winds and rough water, but the rewards for catching dolphin are tremdous for those fortunate enough to get a good day for offshore fishing for dorado off the coast of Central Florida.

OFFSHORE in warm waters in or near the gulf stream. Dolphin are migratory peligic fish that are found in every ocean in the world. They like to hang around floatsome and debre and are often found cruising large weedlines of sargasso seaweed or rip currents.

Months to pursue Dolphin
April - Big Fish Month
May - Loads of Mahi-Mahi
June - Smaller School Dolphin
November - Southward Migration

Remarks

One of the fastest-growing fish, thought to live no more than five years. A dorado is capable of a swimming speed of over 50 miles an hour. Dolphin spawn in warm ocean currents throughout much of the year where their young are found in sargassum weed and they feed on flying fish and squid.

Trolling is the most traditional way of catching dolphin, but we've found that sight fishing has been producing very well the last few years and gives anglers something to do rather than sit and wait for the bite.

Regulations

20" minimum to fork of tail, 10 fish per angler and not to exceed 60 per vessel possession limit.

State Record

77 lbs, 12 ozs.

Fishing Forecast

May - 2017 Fishing Forecast

May in Central Florida is the beginning of great things for people looking toward an ocean fishing trip looking for fast action. King Mackerel, Cobia and even a few tarpon start to make a showing as May develops into a more summer like pattern. Inshore the fishing can be productive for early morning and evening anglers as the sun warms the gin clear waters of the Mosquito Lagoon and the Banana Rivers. Both Redfish and Spotted Sea Trout will be a popular gamefish that even the youngest anglers will appreciate and enjoy. Bring plenty of sunscreen, some polarized sunglasses and broadbill hat as the Florida sunshine will penetrate the most protected boating endeavors. May is the beginning of the summer in Florida as far as the temperatures are concerned, but there's often an afternoon shower, so be prepared to fish early and get off the water before the afternoon storms roll in. So remember, inshore fishing and offshore fishing are an equal opportunity in May in Central Florida.

Inshore Charter Fishing in the Banana River Lagoon near Cocoa Beach, Florida. Catch redfish, sea trout, tarpon, snook and many other saltwater gamefish aboard the world famous Lagooner flats fishing boat with renowned Captain Richard Bradley.

Captain Richard worked hard to put fish in the boat. We were able to bring in a few big Reds and some trout, and a couple keepers to take home for dinner. It's always the hope to be able to catch lots of fish, but fishing is fishing and there are no guarantees; the time of the year we travel to Florida also has an impact on our fshing success. This last trip out with Captain Richard my wife came along and thorougly enjoyed the experience and catching the big Reds. She is looking forward to our next trip to Florida and another fishing trip with Captain Richard.
