DB-

I have been trolling shad umbrellas with a great deal of success for the past two seasons. That said, if I can consistently catch fish by casting bucktails - I'll stick with that every time. If however, things slow down & the fish are spread over a wide area, trolling becomes a good choice. I pull the shad umbrella with mono. I know lots of guys will disagree with me, but I could pull up a truckload of junk off the bottom to illustrate the fact that you can go deep with mono. Just slow down - no more than 3 knots.

Good luck

No drail, no planer, no downrigger - just mono. The umbrella has about 1-ounce of lead at the top - that's it. How deep? I hang bottom occasionally in 40+ feet. Go slow & it'll go deep. Keep it under 3 knots.


Try it - you might be surprised.

Good Luck!
