What most anglers seek for the Dinner Table here? Dorado is very abundant and the majority of anglers return to the docks at the end of the day with plenty of Dinner in the form of Dorado. This equally fighting fish is the most magnificent in color which changes from brilliant green, yellow and blue being all lit up with color to a gray
Mahi-mahi can live up to 5 years, although they seldom exceed four. Catches average 15 to 29 lb. They seldom exceed 33 lb and mahi-mahi over 40 lbs are exceptional.
Mahi-mahi has compressed bodies and a single long-based dorsal fin extending from the head almost to the tail. Their caudal fins are sharply concave. They are distinguished by dazzling colors: golden on the sides, and bright blues and greens on the sides and back. Mature males have prominent foreheads protruding well above the body proper. Females have a rounded head. Females are also usually smaller than males.
The pectoral fins of the mahi-mahi are iridescent blue. The flank is broad and golden. 3 black diagonal stripes appear on each side of the fish as it swiftly darts after prey.
Out of the water, the fish often change color (giving rise to their Spanish name, dorado, “golden”), going though several hues before finally fading to a muted yellow-grey upon death.
Anglers here seek the Bull Dorado which is very large and mature but are delighted with any size as long as it fits on the dinner table.
