We had a great fisherman, Riccardo Fracchia, tell us how he manages to catch “trolling,” with great success, from his boat in the summer. Here are his tips: take them into account!

Fishing from the boat: here are the sailor’s tips

In deep-sea trolling you need to consider speed and “guns.” Sail between four and eight knots and consider a bait size large enough to allow the large fish to see them and feel the turbulence created by the bait more quickly. Sailing many miles each year I would be really foolish not to troll a couple of lures. So over time I have experimented with all colors ways and sizes…. By now I have a faithful and legendary ally that is always my favorite choice in all weather and speeds. It is the 14 cm red head rapala, to which I add an eighty-hundred-and-twenty gram cigarette lead locked by a stainless swivel with a sling swatch, ten meters away from the rapala, to help it sink and create air bubbles that intrigue the fish.

Leaving the first of the two rods, armed identically, 80 meters from the stern in the wake and a second at 150-170, out of the turbulence created by the evolutionary effect of the propeller. I have achieved great catches and satisfaction with this technique, in some cases so abundantly that it clashed with my principles. I was often forcibly limited in my fishing because the shipboard needs for the entire week were covered with a few minutes of fishing in the right place. Large dolphinfish, big skipjack and tuna of various species attacked our baits.
