Have any of You guys been having any luck on these while trolling in some form or another? Thanks. CF

Yep, work great! Although I don't troll a whole lot, mostly jig around trees with tubes but keep a rod rigged with a stroller ususally on a 1/8 oz for pitchen at trees and also like to make long cast around likely looking areas count down and then make a steady retreive back to the boat. I have caught some really nice crappie doing this. Also located some structure that I didn't know was in the area. I'll make a couple of cast around it and then move in close and work it over with my long rod and tube. Favorite colors - electric chicken, white, black-chartreuse.

Yes I use them to long line troll and when I push jigs. Just hope they continue to add colors to the line up!! When I long line you can see the rod tips vibrate. Great Bait!!!

I use them on a 1/16oz jig on an UL, I cast it out, let it hit bottom and them pump it up and down back to the boat when I not fishing real deep water. Most luck with Blk/Char.

Are U putting the tail up or down on jig?

You'll probably say WHAT??? But the tail is sideways, I put the flat side of the body up on the jig making the rounded side down. Kind of a different style of plastic grub but it sure works great! I'm very happy to see Bobby Garland making more colors and I do consider the Stroll'r to be my go to big crappie bait. Try some you'll be surprised how well they work!

I love em!! Troll them just fast enough to get the tail thumping. That is usually .6-.8 mph on my GPS. I bought all the ones I have from Monk. I don't have to tell ya he is top notch when it comes to fast shipping and customer service.

How is it fished? Does it thread on to a standard jig head? It looks to be larger than a normal jig.

I long line and spider rig them. They work either way for myself.

Any way you rig them works so long as their moving to keep the tail action going, we had the folks @ Garland explained the development phase of the bait at our spring get-together and underwater tests with diving gear were employed by bait designer George Tolson. He loves crappie fishing and has a real passion for these baits.
