Forums Forums Fishing Kayak Fishing Anyone with experience trolling with rods behind their kayak? I can’t bring my fishing yak to my in laws’ cottage, so I had to modify their rec kayaks I bought them. I’ve been using rear view mirrors and setting my drag really light so I can catch the hits, can’t put the rods in front. Any advice?

    I used to troll a big streamer behind my kayak on my way to, and on my way back. I’d have the entire flyline out, drag set just enough to keep the spool from turning, with the fly rod pointing directly aft. Might also work for your set-up. Good luck!
