The Turks and Caicos Islands are world-renowned for their year-round fishing opportunities but the months of November through March are especially plentiful. Wahoo, Black Fin Tuna, Grouper, Snapper, Bonefish and many more are in their high fishing season during these months, but it has been an especially terrific season for landing some beautiful Mahi Mahi.

What are Mahi Mahi?

Mahi Mahi are a relatively large fish and are also known by the name Dorado or Dolphin Fish (no relation to dolphins). An average fish weighs in between 15 and 30 pounds and Mahi Mahi are known as prized fish for eating because their mild flavour delights even the most sensitive palates. They have a tender and flaky texture making them an ideal fish to bake, grill, broil, or pan fry. When you are out fishing with our crew, make sure to ask them to help you clean and fillet it for you once you land one in your boat!

How to Fish for Mahi Mahi

The Turks and Caicos Islands are known for a multitude of different types of fishing including deep-sea, reef and flats fishing and each type yields different types of fish! When fishing for Mahi Mahi, you will be heading out on one of our Deep-Sea Charters and Grand Slam has been voted as ‘World’s Best’ for Big Game Fishing.

Sport fishing enthusiasts love to fish for Mahi Mahi because this is a fish that just loves to put up a good fight! They are extremely strong and once hooked, they spin and jump and are a challenge for even the most experienced anglers! Even once you land one, it will continue the fight – that’s why we call them ‘Our Favourite Acrobats’!

If you aren’t a Sport Fishing enthusiast, don’t worry, you will love this charter too! When fishing for Mahi Mahi, they are absolutely delightful to watch in the water. Their vibrant colours, often blue, green and yellow, flash through the waters once it is on the hook and their acrobatics are impressive to observe!
