I troll in Escambia Bay with my kayak, usually using two rods. The benefit of using two rods is trying something different. Often one thing will work better, but my all time favorite is a small gold spoon. You can catch a mighty big red with a small spoon; just make sure the hook is strong enough. Sometimes other lures work better. I really do not know why, and maybe somebody can figure out the time of year or whatever makes a difference.

If you are trolling for reds i would suggest using a diving lure and a semi-surface lure like he said a spoon. usually the bulls aren't too picky this time of year just try to fish as much of the water column as possible until you find them. Diving birds is a sure sign and then i usaully start casting.

Deep divers are great and although the Mann's and other big deep divers work well they can be a bitch to paddle around (probably not as hard for the hobie guys). My favorite is the Yo-Zuri Crystal Minnow Deep Diver. Its a smaller bait that is easier on your arms but still gets down to more than 15ft which is usually deep enough and it has plenty of flash. Get the 5 1/4" model inpink or chartreuse.I've caught reds to 44"on it from my yakand it holds up great.

I have an outback so Paddling is not an issue. As for depth around 20 to 25 feet? And for a spoon, do you weight it any or do you just simply tie it on and pull it around?
