Yes, in that case with those big reels, in my experience, they would be trolling feather jigs.
The run quite a bit faster so they can skim the surface.
We've had bonita, king fish, mahi-mahi, sharks, and others hit these lures. When king strike at these lures, they are moving at very fast speeds from the deep and climb at almost a vertical angle to the bait. Sometimes as you look out at your lures skimming the water, you will occasionaly see a king fly up out of the water and into the air as the strikes these baits. It's definitely a sight to see. But, that's the salt...where just about anything will hit your bait....
Back to a fresh water discussion.
I generally troll at the lowest speed my big motor will allow....3mph. If I want to troll slower, I use the 72lb electric TM.
I have caught stripers on many lures at diffent depths depending on the time of year and conditions.
We have used the hell-pet method with different end lures, lead line on the lake....what a chore, and now we have manual downriggers.
Crappie rig trolling is yet another world and it does work. But I like to feel the thump on my jig, so I just stop and jig for them - it's more fun.
And when it gets real cold, I find sometimes jigging or deadsticking will work best.
