Around here the eyes are shallow, like in the weeds, on the first break, or just movign out to the first off-shore structures.

My water temp is in the low to mid 60's on the surface. What methods are you using in that shallow... Boards or casting???

I've trolled a lot this year but haven't used boards yet, all my trolling has been contour or structure trolling and boards don't help with that. You can use boards, but flatlines are just as good or better for that imo.

I've also caught fish on jigs and plastics, at times have had good action doing that, but so far the trolling bite has been better for me.

try casting a jig and minnow to shore in the rocks were the water is dirty if that dont work try number 5 shad raps than try the x-rap. Let me know what you find. around here all the fish are still 2 to 3 foot of water even thou the water temp is 60 to 65 has to be in the rocks or small fish in the sand thou

Recently, been crankin em up on the first break at dark, few weeks ago they seemed more up on the shallow flat, going tonight for a Smithwick rattlin rogue run. I like to run the break once, as it gets darker up on top and zig zag from the break to the shallows back to the break back to the shallows until it hopefully happens.
