Slow Trolling Lures For Kings?


Recommended Posts

Robbie I had great success a couple of days ago slow trolling a pencil bait. The CD's were ignored as was the livie, the 3 kingis I caught smashed the 'cigar' right up in the prop wash, no more than 5m back. I'm convinced they love prop wash, tomorrow I'll try 4m back with "teddy torpedo".



Poor old Ted, busted in the head

Earned his keep today

three kingis dead! :biggrin2:

I have had a lot of success with the sluggos, no reason why they won't work trolling. Other unweighted/ lightly weighted soft plastics would be worth a try too, eg a flick bait.

PS, what are DR's?

dr's are downriggers mate.

Can any one suggest a lure/s that I can hang out the back while I have the two DRs out the sides for Kings.

Seems like a waste of good water not to put some thing out there, :1prop:

I have been using a CD7 with out any luck so far.



what about a swiming gar ,works for me
