Trolling is a very popular technique to fish for a variety of freshwater and saltwater fish. While you can target most, if not all, species of fish by trolling, this technique definitely works better for certain species of fish. In freshwater, trolling is very common for salmon and trout in lakes and for walleye. In saltwater, trolling is popular off the beaches and way offshore for many different fish from Spanish mackerel to marlin. Depending on the fish you’re after, you may need some specific trolling equipment to help you put more fish in the boat.
