I am looking into buying a rod and reel to use as a dedicated trolling setup. I have decided that I want to get a medium action trolling rod with a line counter baitcaster type reel.
What I want are opinions on what kind of line works best. What do you folks prefer? Lead core vs wire core vs mono(with a diver of some sort)?
I will be paddling an 18ft Grumman double ender in pursuit of lake trout.
I am trying to figure out where to mount my rodholders. I have seen a few setups with the rods behind the rear seat, but I am inclined to mount them in front of both paddlers. Any opinions?
