Mouth of big Mineral was spot last weekend. I saw one troller go by. Looked liked he was just trolling a sassy. I have a manual downrigger but have not installed plate on my latest boat. Not sure I will. Thinking of just selling it. Not sure what kind of boat you are in but might try dragging a bucket or sock to slow speed.
