Trout move deeper in the water column to seek out cool water as summer sets in and surface waters warm. Trout often inhabit depths around the thermocline, the transition between the warm, oxygenated surface layer and the cool, low-oxygen lower layer.
Black marlin hunt on the edge of the reef and feed on the abundany schools of both skipjack and yellowfin tuna. Boats catch live tunas each morning on the edge of the reef and transfer live tuna to 'tuna tubes' - a type of live bait tank that keeps the tunas alive until they are deployed and slow trolled along the drop-off.
One of the best methods to locate marlin early in the season is by trolling a set of marlin lures. Most boats troll at 6.5 to 8 knots and stagger trolling lures along the 'clean' lanes or alleys which form behind a boat at trolling speed. Placing your trolling lure in these lanes is critical.
During springtime, stocked trout in lakes and reservoirs can be found fairly shallow, feeding in the upper 10 to 15 feet of the water column. An effective technique to catch spring trout is to troll with crankbaits, either longlining directly behind the boat or with planer boards. Troll with 10 to 20 feet of line out at a speed around 2 mph.
The Great Barrier Reef is a giant marlin paradise. Huge black marlin patrol the miles of reef along this pristine coastline hunting various tunas and reef fish. Australian game boats troll dead skip baits to raise black marlin, many true 'granders' or marlin over 1,000 lbs.
