TrollTrue lures are intended to slide up the leader when fighting a fish. This minimizes the opportunity for the fish to throw the lure.
The lure is held in place on the bait by the force of the water as it is trolled. Without adequate flow of water across the lure, there is a potential for the lure to be displaced and not troll as intended.
Situations to avoid that might displace the lure include:
Free-spooling the bait back when dropping back.
Allowing the bait to skip. TrollTrue lures are intended to be a swimming (not skipping) bait. To let it swim as intended, you can either drop the bait back further in the spread or lower the angle of entry into the water. Gunnel mounted release clips can be used to lower the angle of entry into the water and troll baits close to the boat.
Stopping the boat while fighting a fish on another line. You should always keep the boat in gear when fighting a fish. This helps to maintain pressure on the line and minimizes the opportunity to lose the fish. If the boat is stopped, be attentive to how the TrollTrue lures are trolling when you start back. Check the lures if necessary.
Trolling too slow. This really only comes into play when trolling from a kayak. If necessary, the TrollTrue lures can be secured in place. The best way to do this is to insert a short section of toothpick through the eye of the nose hook once the bait is rigged and the TrollTrue lure is in place. This is not necessary with conventional trolling.
