Flip. Trolling for skams


Recommended Posts

What methods do people like for trolling in shallow cold water for skams?

I'm thinking about trying my browntrout spread mixed with my offshore spread? Lots of orange and several body baits.

Any other tips?

If you're gonna ignore everything else and target just the slams we've done well running a small spread of orange spoons on boards at 3-3.5 SOG. Many times the fish are concentrated in specific areas so running less lines actually helps you turn quicker and stay on the fish.4 total planer boards with baits in the top 8ft is pretty standard for us.

Yup, orange. Double Orange Crush from Scorpion to Mag size spoons. ThinFish in orange and orange with black ribs. Orange and Fire Tiger Fast Track minnow baits are also good plus can be run at faster (3-4.5 mph) trolling speeds to cover more water.
