Dorado (most people are more familiar with the name Mahi-Mahi thanks to seafood restaurants) are found on both coasts of Costa Rica, especially the Pacific. The high season there runs from May through August, but it is not uncommon in November and December to catch 20-30 and sometimes 40 Dorado in the 30-40lb range under floating logs and weed lines. This colorful and acrobatic fish is a favorite game and food fish everywhere. While small Dorado can be found inshore; the big, hard-fighting adults are found offshore. Once hooked, high leaps and lengthy tail walks are a common sight. Hooking a a Dorado is a bonus because not only do you get a great fight, but an even better meal as well. Below are some great photos from clients and top captains.
