Early May Dolphin/Tarpon Report - Miami/Miami Beach, Florida

Date: 2021-05-11

dolphin fish|mahi-mahi|miami fishing charter|knot nancy fishing charters Here is a quick dolphin/tarpon update. Let's start with the dolphin. I've done two trips thus far in May. There are dolphin out there, however, you'll have to work to put together a catch. You pick up one here and one there. My first trip was a three quarter day. We caught seven (7) fish and had to throw back three. Had the same group the next day for a half day. Caught five (5) keepers up to 8 pounds. Last night's four (4) hour tarpon trip produced six (6) tarpon to 80 pounds. Never had a chance to take pictures and missed the opportunity for a really good one as the 80 pounder jumped and slammed into the side of the boat with it's head and gills above the gunnel. Everyone was running for the neutral corner when that happened. The dolphin action will only get better and better. The tarpon action will continue to be steady through June and into July. Just as a reminder, on August 1st, I'll be officially shutting down Knot Nancy Fishing Charters. I'll be getting the boat ready to sell.
