Hope to hit the hooter this week looking for hard tails ( 1st time) , I hear trolling is effective , not my favorite ,
Soooooooo, what do I drag around, I've got a ton of metal stuff, is that enough.
Looks like there's some nice drop off around there, deep dive plugs?
I dun no!

I used to troll small tins, like pet spoons, castmasters and deadly dicks and caught them and little tunny.

There used to be a guy on here that did pretty well using flies that he trolled behind lures. Kind of like the opposite of a teaser

last couple of years I will start with a mix of floating, sinking & deep diving crystal minows. Then switch them all if one gets bit a couple of times.

Sometimes I just go straight to the deep diving crystals, or mix the deep crystals & the deep mirrolures, you can seem to get under the blues that way. sometimes.

Another way to find out what's working is check tackle store racks, the empty ones are what's working,,, like the fastrac :-) at sports port

I never get to fish anymore. My life has totally changed with a 3 year old boy. I get my fishing fix through reading the post and pictures here. Time for me to share this to give back for all the great posts I enjoy reading so much.

I've trolled the hooter many, many times as well as Paradise, East Beach and many of the rips in and around eastern MV and Nantucket. I bought this lure one day at Sharks Landing and immediately started catching more bones and especially albies. I've bought MANY of them since and although they all work good, these green ones outfish them all especially in a rip. You can't cast em. Gotta troll it. Don't put another rod near it or you'll end up with a brid's nest because the movement is so violent. The single hook is absolutely deadly and works fantastic with the shape of the lure. Very rarely do you lose a fish once hooked.

The Tony Aceta spoon is phenominal and not as wel known, at least down Vineyard way. The 2005 boat albie winner was caught on one just like this.

Good luck! Please share how you do and post a pic of your catch. Enjoy.
