A new, highly effective, technique has been developed by a few successful peacock bass fishermen. These guys have been trolling jigs with high catch rates.
Unlike traditional jigs, these trolling jigs have extended teaser trailers to add size and action. They are more or less a long fly tied on a strong light weighted hook and trolled in many lagoons 50 to 100 feet behind the boat.
This technique also offers the fishermen to still fish and get a rest from the exhausting ripping action while casting chopper type lures in extreme heat!
I tend to believe these trolling jigs would be highly successful on catching salmon in the Great Lakes or even perhaps walleye and bass. Give them a try on your next trip.
