Does it seem like cheating to you?

Not cheating to me. I've caught a 1,000 bass trolling or strolling a DD22 at Fork over the years.

Strolling might have been invented by Lake Fork guide Dean Stroman many years ago. What he would do is, mainly using a DD22, is let out all the line on his reel over a road bed or another boat lane type place where there were no standing timber. He used both his big motor or trolling motor to move it along at a fair pace.
He often caught two bass on one crank bait,
He often complained about wearing out his trolling motors. Many 10 pound fish were caught by him or his customers.

Up in the Ozarks trolling for bass is pretty common.

I thought trolling was the only way to fish when I was a youngster. That's all my dad did.

Growing up My dad and I would troll in ponds for crappie, bluegill and bass. Lots of times jut with little crappie tubes or little crankbaits/jerk baits. I still troll anytime I'm in my john boat using just my trolling motor. Might catch a bonus fish!


Thats my money fish

Thats how the pro's caught all those big bass out of Richland Chambers when they were there years ago. The lake hasn't been the same since.

Ask the old timers on Falcon how well they do when trolling the dam grin

Back in the late 60s and early 70s we would troll Hellbenders at Rayburn in the summer. Caught tons of fish doing it. Messed around with trolling DD22s in the mid to late 90s and it still worked then. Found some deep structure that held fish that I still fish today.
