Great day out on the water

| By Captain Jeff Shelar
Dolphinfish Charter

Great day out on the water with Jim and his wife and his friends. We hammered some nice dolphin and ended up with two big slammers. The biggest one was 53.3 pounds which made the 34 pounder look little! It also came out of the water in a brilliant blue color that was gorgeous.

The vibrant blue coloration seen in Mahi-mahi, also known as dolphinfish or Dorado, is due to their unique ability to change colors rapidly. When Mahi-mahi are alive and in their natural habitat, their skin can shift between various shades, including vibrant blues, greens, and yellows. This color-changing ability is often linked to different factors like mood, excitement, camouflage, or communication.

The bright blue coloration on Mahi-mahi tends to intensify when the fish is excited, agitated, or when they’re hunting for prey. However, after they are caught and removed from the water, their vibrant colors tend to fade relatively quickly, as the process of color change is often tied to their natural environment and behaviors. I was sure to have us get a photo before that happened!
