Top 10 Deadly Dolphin Rigs

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

10. Chugger      

A consistent trick to bring dolphin back to the boat and rally their feeding instinct is to fan-cast a large chugger over a large swath of water. Radically work that chugger rapidly, making it chug and spit water as it races back to the boat. The enticement here is twofold. First, the deep chugging sound permeates far and wide through the water to pique the dolphins' interest. Second, the sight of the chugger fleeing as if from a predator triggers the dolphins' aggressive nature. Once the fish rise to the chugger, pull the lure from the water and pitch a traditional bait.
