How to Troll for Smallmouth Bass (With Fast Fish-Catching Action)

Today we’re out on the water with Enzo out on Lake Eerie’s eastern basin at 5am, trolling for smallmouth bass.

We’re trolling with the misty minnows, which are realistically shaped crankbait minnows. I’m using a medium natural colour, and Enzo is using the silver blue.

We’re looking for smallmouth today and we’re going to troll for them through about 10 feet of water or shallower, ideally between 6 and 12 feet. The medium misty minnows drive about 6 feet, so they are perfect for trolling for smallmouth bass, keeping us down to the bottom.

We’re going to troll as slow as we can, which is about 3mps with our outboard. We’re going to work our way around the shoreline.

Today’s episode is loaded with great trolling for smallmouth bass paired with lots of fish catching action!
