Rated 3 out of 5 deluxe trotline The item will catch fish. However, hooks are of poor quality with coating flaking off causing rust. Individual hook ties provided in package have many of there ends unraveling. Would recommend with reservation.........hooks will equire replacement in short period of time. January 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Liltxtornaydo Great Product I bought this product and tried it this weekend. It worked out great. Only lost one of the metal hooks and that could have been my fault for not making sure it was secure when I ran the line. Simple to put out, run and take up. Fast! Love it. Will be purchasing more soon. April 5, 2010
Rated 1 out of 5 by McKenna COMES APART The metal things on the trotline come off or slide out of place. The old trotline Bass Pro had was better. November 11, 2009

A:I make my own trotlines using barrel swivels and 5/0 circle hooks. Any premade trotline will have cheap hooks that too many times have been found straight when I checked my lines.
A:Trot lines are made to be stretched over a wide area (usually from a tree or downed log to another anchoring point). The line is usally baited with cut shad, bluegill, worms, or even liver depending on the species of catfish that are targeted and what works best in your area.
As well the line will need to be anchored by a large enough weight to keep the line on bottom. As well, you may want to tie a jug to the line to help mark where the line is (and to keep boaters from chopping the line up in their props).
As for catching the catfish, when a catfish does take the bait, they tend to hook themselves due to their actions. Just be sure to check the line often to ensure that the hooks are baited and that no turtles are eating the bait or fish that are caught.
