Phil,

Bring the "basics" with you. Some crawlers might be a good idea too. Expect a lot of pressure and recreation on the weekends and you'll pay if you don't live in Lake County.

Once you get there, you'll be able to figure out what to do. No "big" secrets. You'll find some nice weed beds, timber, etc. The water can be pretty clear so keep that in mind.

I heard live bait works well there. What would be the best all around live bait where I can catch both bass and a possible nothern with?

I'd go with medium roaches and hook them behind the dorsal fin. Try freelining them (no weight, just hook and minnow).

Never freelined before...do you just cast it out and let it sink? Oh, I'm guessing to use like a size 8 hook? Thanks for all the help.

Phil
