    The madness continued this morning, Oct 14th,  on a beautiful weed line.   Mahi everywhere ~79 53 W east of Port Everglades 26 02 to 26 06 N.
    We were trolling the usual stuff and had one triple header,  1 quad with 4 on at once with just two of us, a couple of doubles, and nonstop action for a few hours.   Last minute trip and we forgot the plastic tags.

    Seem like better schoolies up to 10lbs are around. Don’t be afraid to use lures that mimics a bird…

    Sure Captain,  and nice catching to the other posters here. All of the fish we caught were legal, 8 were still peanuts that we threw back,  a dozen were the size of the last picture and the front row of b1gdog83's last picture,  two bulls that were 12-15 lbs, and a few mahi that didn't make it into to the boat.  We also caught a small black fin tuna and a bunch of bar jacks.  I skipped a couple of those hoping for something big to crash it.  Anyone ever have any luck doing this?

    Why do folks in South Florida call dolphin Mahi?
    I don't understand that.
    That's what they call them in Hawaii. 
    Last I checked we are in South Florida.
    Not a big deal just always has been dolphin or dorado

    Think it likely that many people [who know zilch about fish and fishing] thought the word "dolphin" referred to the mammal . Think  others...maybe some sushi eaters... think it's cool, and also call yellowfin "Ahi" and wahoo "Ono".

    I once went to a restaurant with my wife. I didn't know what Mahi was so I ordered grouper which was good

    I think most restaurants today list it as Mahi as it sounds more exotic, they can charge more for it and less knowledgable landlubbers won't think they are eating flipper.
