I thought with the fall trolling season about to go in high gear, this would be an interesting/educational thread. Please give lure Length, Weight (in line if used), Color and distance set back. I got butterflies just thinking about the BIG BOYS this fall.:thumbup: Capt. Ken

I like a 13/0 Cripple Alewive rigged with a 2 - 6 oz parachute ran back 320 feet off a center rigger.

Early I use chartruse spoon and parachute but later in December I'll switch to a polished gold CA with a white parachute.

The big Bunker spoons see action- I like silver or white on a noodle rod and wire-back 150 feet or so.

Daisy chains (Warren's baitshop in Glen Burnie) seem to always catch a few huge Rock on my boat every year.I run these off the planer boards or on a downrigger.

The good old 20 oz MoJo on wire line back 75 - 100 feet gets hit alot.

You go over a school of Rock in the winter -they will hit most everything you have out.

White 4oz or 7oz parachute with 9" shad solo way back at 20-25 bars on a 330gti with 30lb diamond line is always hot. Also a white umbrella cannot be beat out 50-75' with 16-20oz inline.

27 sailfish - how is the CA rigged with the parachute are you talking in tandem or as one lure? is the CA attached behind the chute?

I start with a 3/0 heavy duty three way swivel.I tie 6 feet of 60 lb. clear Ande mono to one leg.This carries the parachute (which acts as a weight) ;-).

Next I use a Sampo ball bearing 100lb test snap swivel- then 15 feet of 60lb leader.A Sampo 100 lb test BB swivel is tied on.Be sure the fat end faces the rod.This helps keep out debri that can foul a swivel.From there tie on another 15 feet of leader and then the spoon.I like to add a second split ring to the spoon or you can use a HEAVY DUTY snap - not snap swivel.

Let this rig out S L O W L Y and pause it every now/then. Be prepared for a strike letting this out ;-).If it is not too crowded - try trolling a very lazy S type pattern.This puts the spoon in "clean" water the boat did not disturb.

I rig a rod with 300 feet of braid backed up with 200 yds of 50lb mono.It is easy to let out all 300 feet- then another 20 feet or so.This way back rod gets hit alot.The spoon gets the bigger fish while the smaller parachute catches dinner Rock :thumbup:.

Please let the Rock over 40 inches go :yes:.
