WANT TO CATCH THE BIG ONES????? This worked for me many times!!! I would start fishing at 10AM , most of the fishing boats are in at the docks. I would check out with them where they were fishing, how did it go . Than I would set up about a 1/2 mile deeper water. The big ones are loaners and stay away from the pack where most of the fleet catch the easy ones . SMALL ones. Fish in 40 degree water, go close to bottom like 5 to 10 feet go as slow as you can, that your bait is working RIGHT. You might not catch alot of fish BUT the one you do catch ARE BIG. The big ones like cold temp, they are big and fat and move slow, you have to but bait right in front of them because they are lazy to get a easy meal. I fished for 20 years on Ontario and in the marina fished out of I was known to catch the big ones. I fished by myself, it was nothing for me to have 3 slobs on at the same time.
