▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Fishing with Artificial Lures ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

Cast and retrieve with an artificial lure. Allows you to cover more ground, fish faster and control the presentation. Choose the correct lure for the species that you will be targeting. Try varying the speed of your retrieve to entice a bite.

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Trolling ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

Cover a larger area in a shorter period of time. Use the boat to pull the lure. You will need to adjust the speed of your boat for both the lure and the species that you are targeting. You can also use live bait when trolling. You will need to adjust your speed to make sure that your bait can swim and breathe normally.

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Fishing with Live Bait ▬▬
Hungry predators love live natural prey. You will need a live well and a pump to keep your bait alive. You can use a float to prevent your bait from being snagged. If your not getting bites, try using a lighter leader.
