Trolling

A technique using one or more fishing lines baited with lures or baitfish, which are drawn through the water behind a boat moving slowly. Multiple lines are often used, and a system of outriggers and downriggers can be also employed to spread the lines more widely and reduce their chances of tangling, as well as to keep the lures or baits at the desired depth.

Synonyms:
Troll fishing
