Foolproof Way To Catch Tons Of Fish [VIDEO]
We’re talking about TROLLING.
No matter the species you’re targeting, you can catch anything from nearshore cobia and grouper to inshore redfish and trout while trolling.
You really just need to be looking for these fish in the right areas with the right equipment.
Typically, we think of trolling in deeper zones near ledges, drop-offs, and channels.
These are popular trolling structures because there are fewer intrusions to cause snags.
Your focus should be on the type of lure you are using as well as the weight of the jighead or hook.
That has a major impact on the depth you’re fishing.
Trolling Tackle & Gear
When trolling near deeper zones, you can get away with using an open-faced jighead.
Depth is a huge factor in trolling.
A 1/8 oz. Z-Man Trout Eye Jighead is perfect for trolling from your kayak or other smaller vessel in the 1-3 feet range.
Our 3.5-inch 2.0 series of paddletail lures is the best pairing for this application as well.
If you do bump up the size of your lure to any of our 5-inch lures, then the Redfish Eye Jighead in the same weight is best.
Moreover, if you are fishing anywhere from 3-6 feet of water, you’ll want to go up to a 3/16 oz.
Slightly more weight will help your lure get down to where those fish are staged.
When it comes to fishing in deeper water than 6 feet, anything heavier than 1/4 oz. is the way to go.
You can bump it up to a higher weight depending on where you’re fishing.
When it comes to boats and fishing from larger vessels, I would bump everything up a size.
For the 1-3 foot range, it is best to start out with a 3/16 oz. jighead.
Then when it comes to the 3-6 foot range, go for a 1/4 oz. jighead and anything deeper than that a 1/2 oz. or heavier is best.
These weights are what you need to get your lure down to the strike zone from a boat.
Another thing to note is if you are targeting kingfish or other nearshore species, it can be in your favor to use a wire leader.
That way these fish can’t cut through your line once you hook up.
When you are trolling from a kayak, you want to be in that 2 to 2.5 mph range.
That’s slow enough for fish to dial in on your bait and allow you to set the hook.
If you’re fishing in a boat, you probably won’t be able to go as slow as kayak anglers.
But, that’s why you use heavier tackle when trolling from a boat.
Fishing Rod Positioning
If you have your fishing rod in a rod holder, you need to make sure the drag is properly set.
Your drag should be set so if a fish bites the lure, it will get stuck in the hook without pulling the rod out of the holder.
The last thing you want is to have your drag too tight and then a big fish comes along and steals all your gear.
You can also hold the rod in your hands and wait for a strike that way.
Furthermore, I’ve even been out trolling with a popping cork and found lots of success.
It is a perfect way to control the depth of your lure and keep it in a desired portion of the water column.
There are reasons why trolling has been a trusted method for anglers for decades.
It gets results!!!
