What are you planning to troll, I like a combination of xrap 30, s and 20, s with I williamson popper shotgun . This year I am going to troll the witchdoctor as well. Tides good for the heads but the wind is a shocker

The wind was not enjoyable, by the time I got to the boat ramp, it was a wee bit rough for my little boat. So turned around and headed home again.
