"I prefer to use artificial plugs like a Rapala CD 18 or CD 22, or Yo-Zuri or Braid lures," he continues. "When you're using frozen natural baits, they often get damaged without tripping the release. You can use any type of downrigger, but I use a Kristal XL 651 reel loaded with 200-pound braided line and a high-speed Z-Wing." Julylia doesn't use weights to keep the lures down, preferring the simplicity of the Z-Wing. "The angle of the line while trolling with the Z-Wing will be about 45 degrees," he says, "which means that your lure will run at about half the amount of line you have out, so with 100 feet of line out, your lure is down about 50 feet."
