In Photos: Troll Slow and Save

A slight reduction in trolling speed can save a lot of fuel, but it doesn’t have to mean fewer fish in the box. George Poveromo

Small Smokers

Smaller lures with flat or concave heads work great at slower speeds and can be pulled with baits. George Poveromo

Slow Swimmers

Natural baits like ballyhoo and mullet should be rigged to swim, a style that works perfectly at slower trolling speeds. Smaller baits are better too.

Large Lips

Slower speeds call for swimming plugs with large lips, perfect for wahoo and king mackerel.
