Hello, I trolled off the stern of my sailboat. My best results were with a Downrigger I used a Cannon easy troll, but any brand might do. It was manually operated and @$140.00. I caught Grouper, mackrel and Redfish. I was singlehanded, so after hooking a fish and sailing, sail management, motor,what direction,Oh don't foul up fishing line !! I was using lures, no live or dead bait.
...Are you familiar with using Downriggers with 5-10 lb weight ?
