Tips On Trolling Speed For Stripers

Stripers do not scare easily but this speed will definitely do it!

Trolling for bass works best in spring and fall, but if you choose to troll for stripers in winter then slow your boat right down. It may also be an idea to stop it for a period of about 30 minutes at regular intervals because bass are cold blooded creatures and barely move during the winter months. The cold does affect their movements and willingness to bite a lot so it is incredibly important to accommodate that. The quicker you move in colder conditions, the less likely you are to get a bite.

If you are trying mid depth trolling for bass, try moving in an S motion is always a good idea. Maintain a good speed whilst doing this because it encourages the stripers to chase without putting the bait out of reach.

So there you go – some excellent tips to get you started when trolling for bass!
Use them wisely and you will find that the stripers will happily follow you and try for a bite.
