Trolling With Lipped Plugs
Extensive prep time for a successful day of trolling offshore involves breaking ballyhoo backs and clearing ballyhoo poop chutes; skirted lures, crimps and haywire twists; and other technical rigging that can take hours. There’s no better tactic to target marlin or sailfish, or even wahoo or tuna, than using traditional big-game trolling lures and rigs.

Check out what these experts had to say about trolling lipped plugs in different fishy scenarios.
