Fastest speed you troll a harness

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I usually stay in the 1.1 to 1.5mph range but last summer I pulled one at around 2.2 gps  Colorado blade behind a snap weight and it worked. I have always wondered since then if others have pulled them over 2 mph. Was that a fluke or do others also troll over 2mph. According to the literature I've read all winter, that's too fast for the Colorado's

 This year I’m going to try the same thing with leeches and minnows on spinners

Well, I did throw some minnows on the back of spinners and I think the crawlers troll better at the faster speeds

 

You never know until you try

I dont put minnows on spinners just leaches and crawlers and I use bottom bouncers. Its not uncommon for us to go over 2mph either.  I only use minnows for pitching or vetical jigging. 

 

If your a podcast guy Jason Mitchell just did a really good podcast about this. Search for JMO Podcast episode 22 "Trolling Walleyes Early"
