Mahi mahi, dolphin, dorado, good eating, fun fighting

There are a lot of ways to describe these fish, but not many ways to describe how good the dolphin fishing is this year.  The big boats like the Bill Collector and the Run Off along with other great crystal coast charter boats are averaging 30-40 big gaffers each day, with many days limiting out.....if you want to keep that many.   10 nice gaffers/person translates into at least 50 pounds of meat/person.   Mixed in with the dolphin are a few favorite to a fresh yellowfin.....also some blue marlin in the mix. 
Above is a pic from Capt. Justin Haddock who got into the action on his center console, Capt. Greg Voliva even got a good lick on them this morning before the wind picked up.

Some pics to follow from some of my outings, today it was aj's and over-sized bluefish until the wind got up, then anchored up and got lucky on a double header of keeper cobia.
