Would the ribbonfish you buy at Bass Pro Shop work for trolling??
I have very little experience with these and have heard mixed reviews. But using fresh frozen (thawed when you use them) ribbonfish is really pretty easy (it must be it works for us!). You Tube has lots of rigging videos, you can make rigs, but buying the rigs makes it even easier. You can buy ribbonfish easily down at Port A.
I'm sure others have had different, and much more experience than I have, but we've seen the difference of catch rates big time, catching on ribbonfish versus lures 10 to 1, probably more, and catching fish trolling the same rigs with ribbonfish where others are not catching them. Caught a lot of other stuff too, a sailfish out of Port O, big amberjacks and red snapper, cobia, etc..., and lots of Spanish Mackerel.
Not trying to sell you on it, I don't have stock in ribbonfish or anything, just seems very worth the effort and small learning curve, and hope to see you catch some fish!
