Is it just a waste of time to try Ham for Northern?

Not a waste IMHO. My buddy Bryon K. caught a 30+" northern summer fishing a few years back. Had the privledge of netting it for him. Used to catch lots of 3 - 4 pounders in the nw corner summer fishing. Never did try it in the winter. Good luck!

I was out on Ham last winter and could not keep my flag down. I went through a dozen shinners in about 2 hours. I was set up on the north east corner of the island in about 8-10 feet about 150 yards from shore.

I used to fish ham every weekend. We would go through 3+ dozen shiners a day. Fished all over the place anywhere from 4-12 feet of water with the shiner about half way down. Just dont be afraid to move. If you havent caught anything an hour or two after you get set up move to a new spot. It has been rare that i have ever went more than 2 hours out there without catching anything

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.
