Trolling depth charts for Musky Lures
30lb mono plus leader length...17ft to get down 2ft 36ft to get down 4ft 60ft to get down 6ft
Get Mike's Trolling book, helps out a lot with depth curves. Worth the money, I bought the electronic version for my iphone 5.
Thank You for any help,
When I was trying to learn how to troll with my boat, baits and equipment, I took out a notebook and noted when baits hit bottom at different speeds and different line lengths.
I would think for the Bay you could do that. Get those bucktails ticking weeds. Get those shallow cranks doing the same. Shouldn't take too long to figure out.
But that book mentioned earlier, that thing will greatly cut down the learning curve.
i.e.- what cranks and how deepfor Green Bay? This way you get details on that subject matter and if you have question you can ask follow up questions. Then later you pose one about the bucktails, etc. To ask broad questions like you did here, daunts the person that would like to help you out and they say screw it, I don't have the time to type all that out.
or get Mike's Trolling Secrets in a ebook
I there a rule of thumb to the cranks? Use smaller than normal
for bucktails would I use a keel weight Not really, but use quality components
bury the rod in the water? Yes, if there are floating weeds in the area
Any help would be awesome. Get involved with Muskies, Inc and have someone show you the ropes or hire a guide, it will be money well spent
