A great bluewater trolling lure, the Laser Pro 160 can be trolled over a wide speed band, however its optimum speed for pelagics is around 6.5 knots.You can troll these lures at distances ranging from 10-50 metres from the boat. About 25 metres is normal. Troll more than one lure at once to increase your chances, and emulate a school of fish. When trolling for toothy pelagics, such as mackerel, remember to use a Halco Snap or Supa Snap Trace.
Trolling your lures at different distances from the boat not only covers more area, it also avoids tangles when turning the boat, as the closer lure will pass under the further lure during the turn.
This lure has a place in both the bluewater offshore scene, as well as being cast into the base of snags for barramundi, jacks, tarpon and anything else that will grab onto it.
