Best man and I are giving Wingfoot a try later this evening. Any basic advice would be helpful...not looking for hot spots...just some help for a stream fisherman who only fishes a lake 1 or 2 times per year. Heard early and late in day works best, hope to toss a crawler on bottom and cast crankbaits topside!!

Not sure what you're "targeting" but either method should produce "something".
The crawler on bottom should attract a lot of(possibly) perch, bullheads, gills, or crappie-esp. some of the hoards of smallish crappie! Good luck

We just hit the Foot this a.m. Bounced crawler harnesses all over for perch with little bait robbers ripping us off. We found the crappies that were very willing to bite from the 7.5 - 9" range. No bluegill at all. Talked to a guy at the ramp who was bass fishing. He said he did well with 5 caught. We got off around 10ish when it really warmed up. If I was to go again I'd go at sunrise and try to target bass for the fun of it. Good luck.

Many thanks for the WingFoot input...very helpful. Ended up catching nothing with the nightcrawler on the bottom, but....Had a blast cranking my Strike King Bitsy Minnow "Black and Charturese". Happy to land 10 black crappie, while loosing at least 3. Awfully nice place...look forward to returning, even though I am an avid stream fisherman!!
