For conversation sake lets say I am going to fish the 20’ to 25’ range on a hot July afternoon. What would be your set-up? Bottom bouncers? Cranks?

I guess for me it would depend on if you know the fish on sitting on a particular strucutre and are concentrated or if the are spread out over along a break.

Jigs work in all depth but are better for concenrtated fish cranks would probably be better for covering alot of water while trying to pick off scattered fish.

In a lake like Mille Lacs i would say dragging a lindy rig would be a good bet.

I have had luck on Mille Lacs using Lindys, bottom bouncers and plain colored hooks with a sinker. Colors usually are red, orange and chartreuse. In fact, I have found that color plays such an important role that switching up may be the difference in catching fish, if they are being difficult. Case in point... I was using a plain red hook and just could not buy a bite. A buddy told me to switch to orange with a chartreuse bead... Wham! They started biting on that.

Of course, I have been on Mille Lacs when they will bite just about anything. I know most people bobber fish out there, but I have always liked the idea of bouncing on the bottom and letting it sit and then moving it once in a while. You might lose a lot of tackle, though, when fishing around some of the rocky islands. Before I got my boat, I would always bring my own rod on the launches (their poles are all rigged for bobber fishing) and I have almost always outfished the rest of the people on the launch. Of course, I was using a bit of dibble dabble too smile smiley

Don't ask...

Strange business, fishing for Waldos on various lakes. What seems to work really well on one lake doen't work at all on another it seems. Of course, cosidering water clarity; weather; available baitfish and structure, no 2 lakes are identical.

In my younger days, I fished Lake Big Sissabagama in Sawyer County, WI. Waldos were simply never interested in leeches at all. Caught many on Cisco Kids; Pikie Minnows and plain leadheads tipped with a minnow. On Little Pine Lake (near Perham, MN) leeches were king. Never caught a single Waldo on a bait or jig on that lake.

On Wabaskang Lake (in Ontario, Canada) small chartruese jigs with or without a minnow were the ticket.

I guess that's why tangle boxes are so big!

Without question, a jig & pig. 3/8 or 1/2 oz. I use fireline when jig fishing this way. You will catch a hog.
