I`ve always done good using `tots in anything mettallic. Gold w/black back is always good as is rainbow mettallic and purple mettallic as well. If you plan on going to michigan waters soon, I`d hold off as the water was fairly dirty and with these forecasted easterlies it will only stir it up even more. I don`t foresee getting back out there till maybe tuesday. What a cruddy spring we`ve had. When you go, make sure to post your results. Good fishin to ya.
Don`t foresake bottom bouncers with harnesses either. A very effective presentation. I got em last time out on a glow in the dark perch pattern harness. Try using Berkley Gulp instead of a real crawler too. They are more durable than the real thing and hold up to trash fish alot better. Spoons off dipsies and down riggers are another option, although i haven`t used spoons, I`ve heard anything with pink on it has been gettin em.
