Striper Shoreline Trolling Diagram

SHORELINE TROLLING (*TROLL SCAN) APPROACH

  1. Find the depth stripers are hanging in relative to the shoreline. Fish will be shallower in low light conditions, out deeper mid-day and high sun situations. Use fish finder to dial in bait schools and mark fish.

  2. Work the lower third of the water column. Stripers will often reside close to the bottom, but can also suspend towards the mid water column. Use fish finder to dial in best depth. *Take boat out of gear, if needed to drop on a target.

  3. Keep a keen eye out for bottom structure changes. Reefs, boulders, mussel beds and other hard structure will hold fish at a higher frequency. Mark these structures and adjust trolling direction to approach structure from all sides.
