Dolphin fishing in the Keys is, like Tarpon fishing, filled with excitement. Unlike Tarpon, Dolphin are among the fastest growing fish in the ocean, and live an average of only 5 years, whereas Tarpon are know to live over 80 years. Dolphin are also delicious eating, and because of their very short natural life spans, dolphin simply do not have time to accumulate high levels of mercury as many other fish can, and are therefore a very healthy nutricious food.

For those of you new to Dolphin fishing the video below shows two Dolphin being caught at the same time, one on a spinning rod and the other on a fly rod.
