Bucket of Fish?

Dragging a five-gallon bucket helps to slow down your trolling speed. Big, flashy teasers often draw the curiosity of large predator fish. By adding silver-colored reflector tape, available from most lure-making catalogs, to the sides and bottom of the five-gallon bucket, it is possible to simulate a school of bait behind my boat. I also add a large swiveling snap (the kind used on dog leashes) that allows the bucket to spin slowly and flash as it catches the light. I use two buckets — one port and one starboard to make steering easy — and position them about six feet from the stern.
