During the dog days of summer, one of the best ways for offshore anglers to catch dolphin is to go deep-dropping for swordfish.
“A lot of times when you’re fishing for swordfish, you’ll find dolphin,” Steve Fishman said.
As they head out to the swordfish grounds, which are 14-18 miles off South Florida’s Atlantic coast, anglers invariably come across schools of dolphin under birds and around weedlines and floating debris.
If they’re prepared, those anglers can catch enough dolphin for a nice dinner before they even get to where the swordfish hang out.
