Fishing has been great when trolling from 35 to 65 foot depths with lures trolled between 5 and 20 feet down. The fish have been hitting white, green, or yellow equally. Large spoons are also catching. We've been running a 13 rod spread, and everything has been catching from the wwb rod at 250' to the deep short rods at 40' back.
