The Dorado, also known as Mahi Mahi or Dolphin fish, is one of the most exciting offshore gamefish. Coloring ranges from a dark blue along its back and changes laterally through a green – gold – yellow color spectrum.
They can grow up to 80 lbs and live for around 5 years. When hooked, this beautifully colored fish lights up with an almost neon like glow and puts on an exciting, high jumping fight.
The males are easily distinguished by their high flat forehead and are usually larger than the females.
