Throughout the summer we locate numbers of fish by trolling smaller Crank Baits along edges of weedlines and first-break lines in a bit deeper water. Using 6'6" - 8' medium to medium-heavy rods with 15 - 25 lb. super lines or braided lines works perfect.
We are casting some of the bays where the weed beds are growing thick because of the warmer water and amount of sunlight they get. These areas often produce some very large fish. Casting spoons, Spinner Baits, Bucktails, shallow Jerk Baits and weedless plastics result in many memorable strikes and boated fatties.
