Trolling is a fishing technique where one or more fishing lines, baited with lures or natural bait, are drawn behind a moving boat. Trolling can be done both in-shore and off-shore.
The trolling speed depends on the type of bait and the fish species. Where tuna and marlin like a speed of 6 to 10 knots, other species such as dentex or seabass should be targeted with a trolling speed of 3-4 knots maximum.
A well-produced rod and reel with an adequate strength of fishing line are required for this technique. You will also need to in a moving object such as a boat, canoe or kayak.
You can use a variety of different styled lures (spinnerbaits, soft-plastics, metal lures) or even fresh bait to troll behind you.
As this is a popular fishing technique used around the world it is another style that can be used in a variety of areas around the world.
You can use the trolling method in saltwater and freshwater.
