  5. This time of year trolling cranks like flickershads,shad raps,etc. I prefer bottom bouncers and worm harnesses myself most days. And of course the ole jig head(choice of colors here) with a 1/2 nightcrawler casted or drifted. Dont fish too deep. I try to stay @6-12ft(again,most days. There ARE exceptions). Biggest thing is keep in at least random contact with the bottom.
  6. Speed troll shap raps sr 5 or 7s 2.3 to 3 mph or 1/16 or 1/8 oz jig n crawler or plastic in weeds near deep water. That will get you eyes in just about anylake out their with eyes

  7. Are there any left in Rupert? They havent put any in there in at least a decade. I think it was a very short time that they did.
  8. Hmmmm,they've put over 120,000 fingerlings and a ton of fry in there in the last 3 yrs. Go to "determining a saugeye spot" thread and see sticking numbers of last 3 yrs for all lakes.
