Never got one on the flyrod. My buddie I fish with only let me play with the Mahi. Don't get all that many shots at the whites up here in the north east. When we get them up on the bally they want to make sure they hook up. They keep telling me after the 4th one I can take a shot with the fly rod. If only they were in close to the beach like the sailfish down south.
Best way is to bait and switch. Tease them up with bally with no hook or teasers with no hooks. Get them lit up and throw fly in front.
