I use mepps for bass. I catch pike on a jointed shad-Rapp also, like a size 3 I think.red mepps "willow leaf" spinner. i troll it from a kayak and let it get down a bit, and paddle to get the rod tip bouncing just that right speed. just fast enough to keep the blade spinning and get ready. i usually bring 2 since the pike bend the shit out of them. not 1 size like the picture but size 3.
Too Slow I've mapped out the rock piles on Bantam with the low rance. We troll those spots back and forth and have never been skunked.
Going out Friday probably late afternoon. We usually put in around 5 when the skiers are heading in for dinner.
Also the boat launch has a chain across the entrance (not the state side) not sure what the deal is there. I have the current Morris sticker on my truck. I don't like backing into that state launch its so freaking steep.
