No sir! Please don't. (IMO)The only reason you would really ever want to use a trolling lead is when you want to high speed troll to keep your baits in the water at a higher speed.

We use lures such as my Fury lure which is already heavy enough (11oz) to get you deeper in the column at normal speeds (7-8knits)

Most of our mahi come from my Orion, Hustler, or Thunderjet. We on ocassion catch a big Bull on a Poseidon or VooDoo but it's mostly a smaller lure.

Check out Tailwalkerlures.com and look at the Orion lure. That would be my first choice for a mahi.
