It is preferred to check the fishing reports in the region before making a plan. In general, the whole year is suitable for catching dolphin, but the chances increase if you are going between April and first cold weather.
It is advised to use light tackle, preferably thirty-pound IGFA class or smaller. Though some anglers use conventional reels and trolling rods, you can also give the medium one a shot. You need to ensure the reel is capable of holding a line with a length of several hundred yards.
The dolphin is often found under things that help in escaping the sun, which is why looking for flotsam like weed line is a good idea. To avoid following any speed pattern, you must change your troll’s speed frequently. Use flying fish as an indicator of the dolphin’s location, as the dolphin usually follows the baitfish.
