Get a glimpse into their world in these five videos of mahi madness.

Big School of Mahi

Mahi are a pelagic species that can sometimes be found migrating in schools of hundreds or even thousands of fish. This video shows a school of small “peanuts” following one of their friends, who has been hooked. Mahi are commonly known to follow other hooked fish, and anglers often keep the hooked fish in the water to score an easy mahi bite.

Catching a Mahi from Shore

This angler was on his way to the airport in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, when he decided to stop at a local beach to take some casts. Surprisingly, he hooked onto a nice-size dorado. He was using 15-pound line and got spooled twice! Luckily, the knot connecting the line to the spool didn’t break, and after an hour, he caught and released the fish.
