Yeah, by next month they'll be deep, fer sure.

Early in the spring, I've had pretty good success stripping streamers on a sink tip; doesn't seem to matter what the hell is on the end of your line when they're feeding aggressively. When they don't want to chase, I tie on a marabou micro-jig under a quick release indy; this has worked in from 6-15 feet of water- best with some chop on the water, of course. I'm sure any leech, bugger, etc, would work; I like the li'l jig 'cuz it gets down fast.
:cool

(Also, listen to Mitch on the white leech thing. He wrote that in English; he only does that when he's really being serious.)
