The trolling lure was one of Bluewater Gear’s first designs, for obvious reasons…before you can catch the fish you need the lure! One of the most widely used techniques when fishing the deep blue is trolling lures such as this one. Typical trolling speeds are anywhere from 4-7 knots, however, “high speed” trolling can reach an excess of 15 knots. The most popular species targeted by trolling include Mahi, Wahoo, Kingfish, Tuna, and Marlin. Lure sizes can be as small as a couple inches all the way up to 12+ inches.
