So whats working now? What should i look for if im chasing smallies? Are the LM deep or shallow?

LM should be going on the weed edges with standard worm rigs, or senkos. Early morning is good for spinners, top water and shallow cranks. Any of the weed edges or cattails should be a good starting point.

My dad had a cabin there for over 30 years, some real hog bass caught and released over the years. Kept one that was just short of 6#, mounted. I've caught some nice LM during the winter on light crappie, sunnie rigs, what a hoot.

I've had some of my best luck on smallies on the south end near the narrows on the rocks. They seem to go deeper than the LM. Good luck and hang on. Bill

      Took my daughter fishing today. Not unusual. She's 18 and has fished with dad since she was a baby. What was unusual was her boyfriend came with us. She grew up fast. Glad it's still cool to hang with her dad. Brought home a pile of crappies to boot. All had fun.

      I change mine every year. Probably could get by longer then that, but I like to do it every year.
