Trolling spoons are made for trolling and they have good action at faster trolling speeds. For those of you that are trolling with spoons for northern pike, muskie, salmon and trout, you may want to invest in some trolling spoons. They will work better at the faster speeds that you may need to troll at to entice these bigger fish to eat.
Rod, Reel & Line
Trolling Spoons are usually fished with heavier line and a heavier rod, however, spinning gear works fine too for some situations. Most anglers troll for northern pike, muskie, salmon or trout with trolling spoons, so plan on fishing with heavier gear when targeting these bigger fish.
