Here’s how to catch a Dorado trophy saltwater fish: They like shrimp and ballyhoo, however cut false albacore is going to drive them wild! Cut bait into chunks and throw a handful out till you get them into a frenzy. Bait your hook with the same bait and drift it back with the chunks.

After you catch one…take a photo and send it to Luke for a Dorado fish replica quote.
