I use 250# mono for trolled lines, 80# mono for casting leaders. Others use #10 wire.
There is no chance when trolling with the outboard and if you try you will spook the fish for yourself and everyone else for 1/2 a day at least. Find a likely spot, figure out which way the current is going, and drift through.
Thanks for the info on water temp. Is there a top temp when the water is too warm?
That's kind of what i thought about the outboard based on what I've heard and read, and your initial answer. Guess I'll start with the drifting and then look into a trolling motor set up for next year.
I appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions.
