If offshore anglers voted for their favorite game fish, dolphin would likely top the list. And for good reason. Unlike blue marlin, makos, tuna and other popular big-game pelagics, dolphin are usually readily available and quite dependable, especially from the Mid-Atlantic south. What they lack in size and prestige when measured against their bigger oceanic brethren, they more than make up for in abundance, sheer aggressiveness and strength, not to mention edibility. Hook a big one on light tackle and it'll test your skills with blazing runs, spectacular leaps and deep-fighting tactics.
