We used red rattlin spoons and white jigs for our fish this weekend. An orange/gold frostee also produced. Slow bite.

Rattling varmints or crappie knockers to get them in and have a dead stick in the other hole with a bare hook or small jig/minnow. Demons and ratsos have also been good.

Glow red or green. The demons size 4 glow green with a pink tip and glow red. The hooks I have had good luck with pink and red. The rattling varmint I use is 1/8 oz glow red. I forgot the size 6 ratsos in glow with a glow pink or glow green body I put these on the bobber or deadstick line all the time.

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.

      Sorry for the late reply, but no, the first 5 to 6" was soft but the rest was solid. I've been busy in the woods making maple syrup that I haven't got time to get out. I hope to get out tomoorrow.

      Thank you very much! I appreciate the information. I think I will run straight fluoro then.

      I have been using the Alberto knot and really like it, it's easy to tie and one of the strongest knots when going from braid to Fluoro.  I mostly have been using that knot on a spinning rod, for baitcasters I usually just like to run straight braid or straight Fluoro.
