Trolling with the Stim 97 give
excellent opportunities of fishing at the level where the best catch
will be found, particularly inshore coastal water and lakes.
As the Stim 97 always strives downwards a shorter
line is sufficient and makes the trolling more convenient as normally,
say 15 - 20 m of length and at a speed of 2 - 3 knots. It is the
smooth “aerodynamic” form of the paravane which carries
The Stim 97 weighs in at 45 g and measures 115 mm only.
There are two holes for the towing-line on the paravane´s
mounting fin. These regulate the travelling-depth. The towing-line
at the front hole will give a shallower position. The holes on the
stern regulate the paravane´s position in relation to the
boat. The farther at side the leader is fastened the more aside
the paravane will steer.
With the leader attaches well at the side the Stim 97
could be trolled alongside and very close to the reeds and cliff
and the boat steered safe outside.
When trolling for shoal-fish a comfortable way is to use a number
of the Stim 97. With the leaders and the towing-line
attached in different hole on each paravane thus hunting over a
larger area for the shoal and also be able to tempt more fish at
the same time.
