Rods for Trolling
A bait-casting rod may be used for trolling, but if large fish are found where you fish it is best to have a large reel and a long line. For such large fish as muskellunge it is better to use a light salt-water rod, about six feet long, as a rod is likely to get warped in trolling. If you do much fishing where such fish are found the rod will be generally useful. In case you do use a bait-casting rod, use it from the back of the boat, so that it projects straight out behind, and never use it out over the boat at right angles, as the strain on it is too severe.
