TECHNIQUES & PRESENTATION

TROLLING: Arrow Flash Dodgers run at a wide range of speeds, from approximately 0.6-1.8MPH. On average, 1.0-1.7MPH is a great range to start with. Let the fish tell you what speed presentation they want that day! Cousin Carl Lake Trolls will run at virtually any troll speed, so experiment to see what the fish respond to that day.

LEADER: When trolling the Arrow Spin Micro Spinner behind an Arrow Flash Dodger, running a leader length from 6-16” can be very successful, with 8-10” often being the sweet spot. When trolling a Wild Weasel behind an Arrow Flash, slightly longer leader lengths are generally used, usually 10-16” in length. When trolling a Cousin Carl Lake Troll with an Arrow Spin or Wild Weasel behind, you can use leader lengths up to approximately 24”.

BAITING: Both the Arrow Spin and Wild Weasel have fish-catching action of their own, but to make your presentation even more irresistible, tip your hooks with your favorite Kokanee or Trout bait. Be careful- too much bait can add drag or block the point of the hook.
