    Default Trolling plate

    Never even considered them until now.

    Anyone use one? Thoughts?

    The boat is Raider prosport 202 (20ft w/ 2ft gill plate) with a 115 yammy.

    Oh, ok, I seen em before on boats, never used one though. When I had my 35 Yammy prop job it trolled just a litlte fast for me at idle speed so I would just drag either a sea anchor or a 5 gallon bucket behind the boat. Lots cheaper and I think, does about the same thing... thanx man... "fishon"

    You must have just gotten your Cabelas boating catalogue yesterday, huh...?

    I saw them in there yesterday. Seems like it would be somthing for a lake setup, vs. use in the ocean.

    Definitely more common in lakes than ocean. I used them on Tahoe and Pyramid Lake for trolling lake trout, cutthroat, and kokanee. The speeds for trolling for those species are much less than trolling in the ocean. I found they work pretty well but I eventually ended up getting a trolling motor to really help control speed and such.

    Live in Reno for 6 years. Sure was great for 12 months of good weather. I was fishing all year long and slaying alot of really nice trout. I'm not interested in leaving AK but if I did Reno would be pretty high on my list. Where on Tahoe did you grow up? A good friend of mine lived in Incline and his family had a cabin near north star.
