Anything can be trolled, you just have to do the math.
What's your target depth for fishing, what size lure would you use, what speed are you comfortable pedaling, what line are you using (different resistance in the water), what assists if any do you need to get to the target strike zone (weights, long liner, D-diver), distance of lure behind kayak???? Do the math, catch the fish!!! Or have a friend use sonar to track your bait, and make a log of where your baits are running.
Here in Georgia, we use a saltwater style Umbrella Rig for Striped Bass. It's a reaction strike, not about being hungry... They See It They Want It!!! This is a scaled down version I made for the kayak. Trolled at 2 -3mph @ 120-150feet behind the kayak, they reach 18-20feet in the strike zone. These are deadly when you pull them through the school, if you have them in the zone you Will Get Bit, and sometimes with multiples.
They are stored in paintball tubes, and take up no space for their deadly ability.
A bait retriever is a great way get back expensive baits stuck on the bottom.
