Trolling for stripers in freshwater is a very common technique.  Live bait is the preferred bait of choice most of the time.  Anglers will rig shad or large minnows on a spread of lines and they will use planer boards to help cover more water.  With 2 to 3 anglers in the boat, you can easily fish 4 to 6 rods (depending on your state’s fishing regulations) with planer boards.  A slow troll works best with live bait.  Some anglers prefer using their kicker motor while others will just use their trolling motor to troll.  You can use a variety of lures such as spoons, swimbaits and crankbaits.
