Need to get some ideas on which technique works better for you when trolling for Lake Trout and Landlocked Salmon. I used to troll in Lake Ontario for Salmon and Trout using Big Jon downriggers. Haven't tried in smaller lakes though.
I am planning of trying some of the Maine Lakes this summer.
What I would like to hear is what your experiences are using the technique of the 3-way swivel or using a downrigger. I have read mixed reports on whether or not to use the downriggers versus the swivel method. Also, if using downriggers, should I keep the lure close to the cannonball or a long way back? Used to fish for walleye in Lake Erie using dipsies with a long line in order not to spook them.
Thanks in advance.
