First Time Trolling (didn't go so well)
Never tried trolling for them before, but thought I would give it a try in the old 12' aluminum with my hand-crank downrigger. Tried using Tube N Worm...must have pulled it around for an hour and a half in good water but not even a tug. I was marking fish but none were taking. Maybe I wasn't low enough?
Was using Pollack fillets instead of seaworms since that's all I had handy...could that be my problem?
It doesn't help that the downrigger's tightening nut is now sitting at the bottom of the bay. Guess it's time for lead core.
Any tips on trolling would be appreciated. Anyone troll deceivers or spoons?
