The Christenson's Lightning Dodger is a metal trolling dodger often used by Kokanee and Lake trout fishermen for trolling applications. The Lightning Dodger, from Christenson's Lake Shore Tackle, are designed to be trolled at high speeds with all types of trolling lures such as spinners, grubs or squid. Christenson's tackle makes two very popular dodgers, the Dakota & the Lightning, each is suited for different trolling applications. The dual cupped design of the Dakota Dodger is suited for slower trolling speeds and really delivers a lot of action to the trailing presentation. Conversely, the Lightning Dodger displays a single concave side on the bottom of the dodger which affords much higher trolling speeds without the drag one would experience with the Dakota. The higher speed trolling techniques are typically utilized in the summer months - June/July - and range from about 1.5-1.9mph which the Lightning Dodger is more than capable of handling with ease. The Christenson's Lightning Dodgers are 4 1/4" in length and come in a wide spectrum of color options.
