    Trolling for Sea bass with deep diving lures

    Fun. That's what fishing is all about. I like your kayak set up I'm thinking in buying one with pedals to bring my beer belly down. Try trolling a Krok spoon below the repala Heres a video close to what I'm talking about, but with a squid spoon, use a long Kroc instead. Cheers

    Knot to add some stretch when rising braided line
