Trolling is efficient fishing method where multiple lures are being pulled after a moving boat, and it is very popular way to fish in the Lakeland. Motorboats are typical equipment for trolling, but it is also possible to troll with a rowing boat.
Used lures in trolling are wobblers, light spoon lures, and bait fish attached to hanging loop. Trolling rods are typically 180-270cm in length and the reels are especially designed for trolling. Marine electronics such as echo sonars and map plotters are in great part in trolling.
Trolling can be done in many ways both in shallow and deep water. Lures are spread to side of a boat with side planers or spreading rods. Usually, lures are set to wanted float depth with line weights and deep tackles. When fishing with side planers and deep tackles there are usually 6-12 rods in use at the same time. The number of rods depends on fishing rules of certain water area and type of fishing permits.
Predators, such as pike, zander, and perch are the most pursued catch by trolling. These species can be caught by trolling through the whole open water season. Trolling is very suitable for catching salmonoids too, but you must be very aware of specie and regional specific fishing restrictions in Lakeland before salmon trolling.
