Top 10 Deadly Dolphin Rigs

Keep these proven mahi fishing tricks handy in your offshore arsenal.

6. Flutter-Style Jigs

Another method for pulling up dolphin that have sounded is dropping a flutter-style iron some 100 feet deep and then radically jigging it back to the surface. This iron, rigged with 4 feet of 50-pound-test fluorocarbon leader and joined to the short Bimini twist in the fishing line with a barrel swivel, can be dropped straight beneath a weed line or debris or fan-cast around the boat and allowed to sink. Good color choices are blue-and-silver (flying fish), pink-and-white (squid) and green-and-orange (dolphin).
