Pin a mackerel on it and slow troll... makos / threshers. Doesn't run real deep.... but weight positioning helps keep it from spinning.... The usual problem with that technique. Could be used effectively on a down rigger. .. again slowly. For wahoo....okay to use on private boat....or slow trolling cruiser. DO NOT.... show up on a multi day trip and expect to effective troll with the others at a higher speed. Nothing but tangles, lost lures and pissed off anglers. Just my suggestions...

I trolled mine behind a long range boat for school size tuna. I thought it would troll deeper than the Zukers and get bit first. It trolled fine, but it didn't catch, so I put it away. Maybe I didn't give it enough time, but trolling time is limited and I didn't want to take that chance.

I think they were originally designed for trolling for Makos.
