Mid-August, 2020 Dolphin/Mahi Report - Miami, FL

Date: 2020-08-16

dolphin|mahi The dolphin/mahi fishing action has picked up this week. Guy, Jake, and Alex fished two full (8 hours) days with me on Friday and Saturday. We started each day with dropping on a few wrecks in search of an amberjack for Jake. The first day we had no action. On the second day we broke the ice with a decent size barracuda. Made one more effort on the way in on the second day and Jake got his wish. After a struggle on his part, we released a 30# amberjack after a few quick pictures. Running offshore in search of dolphin/mahi on the first day had us going out to the 56.4 line before finding a nice heavy scattered weed area with mixed in large patches. We put a few fish in the box before we saw a group of birds working over an area north of us. A quick run to the area and we found a nice school of fish. Ended the first day with 14 dolphin/mahi in the box. The second day the morning hours were very slow fishing. Picked up a few fish. After 1:00 pm the conditions changed and we found several small groups of fish. On the way in found another good area and added a few more fish to the box. Total for the second day was 15 dolphin/mahi, 6 throwback dolphin/mahi, 1 amberjack, and 1 barracuda.
