Faster response time. Typically a red will grab and just hold on. The rod arcs into a nice bend and you’re all good to set the hook and reel. Trout seem to prefer a cocahoe not touching bottom, while the reds like it to tap along the mud (but not always). Pro tip: also try a Mann’s baby 1 minus wakebait.

That's a good idea, would give some feedback as well from vibrations and such. Might make out difficulty to paddle so probably try it once I get closer to a spot.
I've got one of those mann's too. Didn't think to try trolling it.
