I've mostly fished by myself, trolling in my boat, except when the wife wants to go along and do some still fishing for perch and crappie. I love fishing for kokanee and even more, love to eat the critters Normally, when I hook up trolling, I'll kick the motor out of gear and fight the fish. I've had a couple of requests for friends to go along, and I have a question about when fishing for kokanee, who are notorious for having a soft mouth. trolling with 2 or more poles, do most just keep trolling while the fish is being fought, even though doing so, may lose some because of the soft mouth issue ? Or do you ask that the extra pole be reeled in ? Thoughts ?
