I've just finished remodeling and rigging up my boat for proper fishing and trolling across the waters of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Being relatively new to trolling, I was hoping I could get a few pointers from amongst the vast group of veteran anglers here.
I need help in basic questions I have:
- When trolling, is it a MUST to use leaders? If so, should I use simple wire leaders or is there more to it?
- What are optimal speeds?
- should I start off focusing on artificial lures? Or should I go for skirted baitfish on hooks?
- Can i simply tie my line to the lure itself, without a leader?
I Hope anyone can offer me their advice, I would really appreciate help with this as I hope that this remodeling of my boat is a start of more fishing fun.
