Are dolphin here or South FL?

I have a buddy coming in 2 weeks and he wants to dolphin fish.  We are looking to get a full day charter.  Do you guys think the bite will be better here or Ft. Lauderdale/Miami?

    Sometime they are way out. If dolphin is what I want I will run out to 1500 feet before giving up and going back in for bottom fishing.

    This years best dolphin fishing, at least for east central region is probably behind us at this point as our surface temperatures offshore here rise above the 80 degree mark. Best fishing for the larger fish usually is with 78 degree water +/- 2 degrees.  Some fish will be around year round though.

    Agreed,  this year's weather wasn't good enough to get them close in before they moved north.  Maybe next year.

    Been fishing keys and SI. Seems like they are there and here and everywhere.
