Trolling the Bay for Gags???
1) Troll with the tide. Yes or No?
2) Have the lure hit the bottom every once in a while or almost consistently...How do you tell if you are hitting the bottom (hold all jokes, remember the kids) as the pole already vibrates back and forth due to the natural action of the large lure (oh boy, that didn't sound PG either)?
3) Are you targeting 3-4 mph as a trolling speed or is that too fast or too slow?
Any thoughts from your experience would be great for a beginner.
