Little Steven's little dolphin

Had a great day of deep sea fishing out of Montego bay last week with two of my sons. Oldest son caught a dolphin that was easily ten pounds bigger than this. We had two blue marlin knock offs but the boys saw the fish from the flybridge. Wasn't any way we could have grilled part of this bad boy but he faught the good fight.

  • That looks great.  One of my fondest memories is getting into the Dolphins in the seaweed, on light tackle, from the Gone Fishin' IV with Don Gurgiolo out of Islamorada when I was a high schooler.

    A bull dolphin is good eating.

    We were in an all-inclusive and it was a little rigid with respect to the food. A few years back we were in florida for the fest in Melbourne and we caught some stuff. Little Chef (Bubba Tim's wife)  did the dolphin with a light coating of mayo and it was incredible. Little Chef is a pro chef

    Is that what is often called a Mahi Mahi?  If it is that is my favourite fish when we go to Florida.

  • Yes they added a couple of names because people thought catching dolphin was cruel. It's called Dorado, Mahi Mahi and Chrysurus. They feed on flying fish mainly and they are all muscle but great tasting and a ton of fun to catch.

  • My oldest son goes about 230 lb and solid muscle. He was completely tired out after fighting his. That puppy didn't run a whole lot but he didn't want to come to the boat. I was ready to quit on him.

    So from the pic and your handle, we can assume the fish was about 2.5feet? ;)

    hahah....Steven, don't confuse the Yanks with millimeters. 

    My mom is on a boat in the Gulf right now.  Unfortunately, it's the Carnival Triumph.  She might be in New Orleans tomorrow night, either way, I'll get some good first-hand info on the horrors of her trip.
