New to boats, and very new to trolling. Got something on the way to figure out my speed. I have a 28lb trolling motor (old one) and a 7.5 hp honda 4 stroke. I am fishing in a 12 foot aluminum boat.
Not sure if different lures need different speeds to get to different depths or what depth I want to be at anyways.
I'm trolling the Napa River for striper. Gets about 20-25 ft in the middle of the trench in most places where we go on a high tide. 8-15 along the sides.
So how fast?
anything special about setting up different lures?
How far should a lure be behind the boat?
Can i use the 4 stroke and just let it go as slow as it can?
(sorry if anything in here is a stupid question, I'm new, lol)
