Frequently Asked


Need Help? We've got you covered!

What is the preferred way to rig the TrollTrue lures?

Most anglers will have the best results using the TrollTrue recommended rigging. The rigging consists of a 4/0 live bait hook as the nose hook and a Size 4 treble hook as the trailer hook. This rigging method is faster, easier, and more consistent than traditional pin rigging and results in less damage to the ballyhoo for longer lasting and better running baits.

Can I make my own rigging for use with TrollTrue lures?

Yes. The rigging is very easy to make. The rigging videos include a description of all materials necessary to make any of the riggings. You can make you own or buy some TrollTrue riggings to use as examples.

What is the optimum trolling speed?

For ballyhoo, the recommended speed is 6-8 knots. For cigar minnows, the recommended speed is 4-5 knots.  

Will TrollTrue lures work with skirts?

Yes. Skirts, sea witches, and similar attractants can be trolled in front of TrollTrue lures.

Will TrollTrue lures work with baitfish besides ballyhoo and cigar minnows?

Yes, TrollTrue lures will work with similarly shaped baitfish 4-8' long.

Will TrollTrue lures work with planers?

Yes. TrollTrue lures can be trolled behind planers or trolling weights to access a variety of trolling depths.

Can I use convention pin rigging with TrollTrue lures for ballyhoo?

If you prefer to pin rig ballyhoo, TrollTrue lures will still help to optimize the bait presentation by perfectly positioning the keel weight and helping to overcome less than optimal rigging.
