Fishing Tackle for Dorado

A 9ft 10 weight is your typical weapon of choice when taking on the Mahi Mahi. Your rod will need to be matched with a good quality large arbor saltwater reel.  To fight a trigger you need to yield nothing and for that you need a strong rod.  Give them an inch and they will take a mile.
