Great catch, well done.

It is not unusual to find fish even hundreds of miles from their native waters. What bait did you use ?

Dorado is a tropical species. This catch is obvious evidence of global change!

I disagree. We aren't separated from Florida by all that many miles. For the last 40 years we have had the Bay freeze over and manatees as well as alligators come to Virginia. It is always a flux here.

Hi Chris,

Disagree with what?

That it's a dorado...? Well, it is not !! A dorado is just another name for mahi mahi also known as a dolphin fish because it makes a noise like a dolphin. This young man has caught himself a kind of trevally or jack (trevally is in the jack family).

Well I agree with you, it is not a dorado.

Or, do you disagree with the comment on global change...? I think the poster meant climate change. Well of course the climate is changing, the question (or debate) is, is it human caused. Just by coincidence it was reported in the news just yesterday that for the FIRST time EVER a U.S and U.K combined research team has found (last week) "evidence" that MIGHT suggest human activity is contributing to global warming. Mind you the news source is questionable at best.

Well I neither agree nor disagree because even the "experts" don't know.

I think we all agree it is not uncommon to find fish (and animals) hundreds of miles from their native waters (and lands).

FYI, this is a Florida Pompano. Commonly caught on the southern Atlantic coast of the US as well as the Gulf of Mexico.

Thanks Troutrouter,

I knew it was in the trevally - jack family I just couldn't quite place it...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carangidae
