Q&A: Best Trolling Speed For Perfect Squid Striper

Q&A: Best Trolling Speed For Perfect Squid Striper

Q: I just purchased a variety of your plastic trolling squid. I have a 24 ft boat, what is optimal trolling speed or range of speed targeting strippers in LI sound?

A: The best trolling speed for these squids is around 2-3.5knts. They can be trolled a little faster than tube trolling speeds, so it’s a good way to cover ground looking for active fish. It’s also best to work the rod in a jigging motion while on the troll, you can also drop out of gear when fish are marked to drop back the squid and try to get bit.
