Fly fishing for dorado is a bit more difficult, but they will hit a fly, then get ready for a fight!

They will eat almost anything so 10-15 inch artificial lures like rubber skirts or teaser birds on trolling lures for Tuna or Wahoo will work just fine. Since they respond very well to baitfish, sardines or mackerel will make perfect natural baits.

Get ready for an exciting battle.

It is important to remember that Dorado are determined fighters, so anglers should brace themselves for a tough battle. Get ready for numerous incredible jumps, each of which is a colorful breathtaking spectacle which will be impossible to forget. Dorado are FAST, and can rip line off the real at incredible speeds.

They’re beautiful fish.

Their unique shape in combination with their almost glowing, greenish-blue golden appearance make the Dorado very appealing. Yet, as soon as the Dorado is pulled out of the water, that vibrant color very quickly drains into a watery blue.

Healthy and delicious to eat.
