It’s pretty early to expect to encounter many Ono, but there are always some around, you just gotta get lucky.
I haven’t had much luck trolling cowbells in Hawaiian waters, the Ono prefer heavy jet heads or your best Ahi lures. I seriously doubt Mahi Mahi would attack one either. They will come in at a big noisy lure, but usually veer off before striking it.
5 and 7” lures are usually more appealing to Mahi, but bait is best!
