Default Rigging flying fish

Hello guys just some questions on how to rig flying fish for trolling. I bought some pre-made flying fish rigs but they were spinning to much in the water. Was wondering if I could get some pointers on how to rig them so they don't spin. Thanks.

Default never seen a premade one.seen plenty of flying fish.

With no experience I would suggest that everything has to be symmetrical. Also we used to have to sometimes reconfigure the swimming mullets with a little palm pressure so they would swim and not spin. How does someone catch flying fish?

Naked flyers? Did you use chin weights?

I've heard at night they can be netted, or made to jump in the boat. I did it by accident. I'd rather catch gogs at night.

Head out in 4 footers with a short period. They'll land all over your boat. Higher seas are even better.
