The dolphin fishing from Key West to Cape Hatteras is in high gear. If you want to catch dolphin in the South Atlantic Bight, now is the time to be fishing. The really trophy bulls, 50 pounds and up, appear to be scarce, but the abundance of fish 20 to 30 pounds is more than making up for it. In the few marina visits that I have made to collect data in South Carolina I have only seen two dolphin less than 30 inches brought to the dock. Out of roughly 300 landed, that's not bad. South Carolina anglers report that they are catching smaller fish. They just throw them back.
