Dolphin fishing is available all year in Jupiter. During the winter months they migrate south from the northern states and the Dolphin fish range from 6 pounds to 30 pounds and larger fish are not uncommon. The larger fish usually start showing in April and their migration route takes them north and last until June. The Reel Candy sport-fishing team target dolphin in Jupiter, both on half day and full day charters. Dolphin fishing is also excellent on our Tuna trips to Walker’s and Grand Cay. Dolphin are commonly caught while the Reel Candy is charter fishing during any of the marlin tournaments in the Bahamas.

Being one of the most colorful fish in the ocean, Dolphin fish will light up and change to iridescent shades of green, blue and yellow as they attack a bait. They jump often during the fight adding to the angling excitement.
