Sure, some are further offshore, but I was fishing near a few last weekend. Even managed to troll up a few fish.

When I started fishing in the 90's, the only people to learn from were the commercial trollers. I almost never saw another sport boat out there. Their methods are absolutely transferable to sport boats.

If you want to fish bait or jig, go for it. It's a great way to catch tuna and for most is more fun than trolling, but quit claiming that you can't catch fish trolling. It's simply not true.
