Default Trolling in my kayak

I think this subject came up before but I am intersted in what is a productive lure to troll from a kayak to locate the fish. I have trolled gulp shrimp on a jig with aslight success. Anybody have and recommendations? I tried a couple lures but I think I paddle too slow to make them productive.

I've had quite a bit of success trolling a D.O.A shrimp if I'm going slow.. I usually just let it out the back if I'm rerigging another rod or casting a different lure on another rod. If I'm going to be covering some ground... going a bit faster.. I'll troll a Mirrolure mirrodine.

+1 on the DOA Shrimp. I catch a lot of fish trailing that thing behind me, never fails, I'll catch a fish on my other rod, and that one goes off also. I just throw it out maybe 10 feet from my yak, it comes up when I peddle, then floats back down when I stop, its always working. Sometimes I will forget its back there until it starts banging with a fish on it.

No float (at least I don't use one).. it'll usually stay pretty weedless too.

Weedless gold spoons and yozuri crystal minnows are my favorites for backcountry. Larger casting spoons and stretch 25 for the Gulf and deeper water. The spoons are really versatile for different speeds.

No float, just a DOA

I always favor trolling topwater mirror lures at about 50' of the yak.

I almost always have a DOA shrimp tagging along behind me under a cork. The cork serves to show me where the shrimp is so I can avoid snagging it onstuff. I have caught a lot of fish that way. The motion of the yak gives the shrimp a good vibe... I do use asmall spin baitfeeder reel which is perfect for it...
