What lure or combination of lures work best for deep water trolling? Also how long should a minnow be trailed behind pop gear? I use pop gear with worms and minnows but i've never figured out if it's better to have a long leader or a short(er) leader, and once again all answers i've received have been inconsistent, so just wondering. I'm fishing at fishlake by the way, so any personal insight would be awesome.

I have trolled minnows behind pop gear for macks at Lake Tahoe. They worked really well. Our guide put about 3' of leader behind the pop gear. I dunno if that is standard or not, but I know it worked.

For deep water trolling, large flatfish seem to be a standard among many mack fisherman.
