Mahi have some teeth. They are small but will cut a light tippet. In my experience they are aggressive fish and not at all leader shy. 20# floro will do for the chickens but you will wish you had 25# or 30# floro if you hook a bull. I'm sure the trollers use much heavier shock tippets. Better safe than sorry...the big ones are a whole different animal.
