How fast can you troll for muskies?

Pretty simple answer here: fast, slow and in-between. Covering lots of water is the advantage to trolling. Speed itself – too – often triggers strikes. Don’t be afraid to try extreme speeds (like 7 to 10 mph), but you need to vary the speed to look for the pattern fish want. If you get a strike moving fast – stick with it. If fish are reacting while going slow, or sometimes even on a pause … do that.
