TIP: Inshore Trolling

1 comment

Fall fishing is heating up, which means I have been spending a lot of time on the water. Between fishing and, lately, shrimping, most of my free time has been tied up with taking full advantage of the season. With that said, I would like to offer a brief tip for this blog entry so I can get back on the water and spend less time writing.
Awhile back, I decided to utilize the opportunity when I was moving from one fishing location to another to troll while doing so. After all, there is more chance of a hook-up with a lure in the water than not. In most cases, I can honestly say that I usually catch at least one fish in this way and sometimes more. The way I see it, that's at least one fish more than I would have caught. I have also known individuals that have hooked large speckled trout in this manner. I personally have caught both trout and redfish while trolling. I normally use wake baits and floating rattle traps with success. I use these mainly due to the shallow water in our area. If you fish areas with deeper water, you may be able to expand your trolling lures. Whatever the case, you will need to choose your lure wisely based on water depths; you don't want to spend your time trying to undo snags. So, my tip of the week is to give trolling a try, especially when moving from one spot to another. It may proof beneficial to add a few more fish in the kayak!

Here is a video from a recent trip in which I show some trolling footage and speak briefly of the type of wake bait I use. Check it out and please hit SUBSCRIBE...
