Depends on the conditions, time of year, particular lake, etc., like so many things.

Preferred? Early spring, jig/minnow or lindy/leech. Late-spring, cranks or spinner/crawler/bottombouncer. Summer, everything, choose depending on the lake conditions, be ready to change-up to anything - but deep crankin on lead is my fave. Fall, shallow cranks all the way.

Cranks, jigs, livebait rigs. Aggressive, neutral and negative. Of course livebait rigs are better for covering water then jigs but they can be interchangeable depending on the situation.

#1. Jig and minnow, leech, crawler, or gulp of various colors and flavors.

#2. Lindy (sometimes spinners of various colors and or floats of various colors) and leech, crawler, minnow, or gulp.

#3. Cranks including shad raps #5,#7, Minnow raps, reef runners, countdowns, Wally divers,and floating raps.

Depends on where you mainly fish. MIlle lacs??

Here are a few of mine that will work anywhere.

Snell length anywhere from 4 - 11 ft. (longer than 6 ft works very well on Mille lacs)

Use different colored hooks, black, chart, red, purple, orange, pink. Same for a single bead.

Spinners - snell length for Mille lacs around 7 ft. Again use different colored beads and spinners. The hammered copper and silver are very good choices.

Trolling cranks is also very productive. Shad Raps, Husky jerk-baits, Salmo's. Colors to try: perch, tenn. shad. chart/silver, gold/black, silver/black. clown, firetiger, blue/silver.

Towards eve. the bigger floating Rapala's have their place for trolling just above the weed tops. Especially during the full moon phase.

Slip bobbers/ lighted bobbers with tiny glow jigs/leeches cannot be overlooked. Some of my biggest Eyes and Smallies have been caught this way.

"Reverse Rigging" big redtails works well in the Fall. Snell length 4-7 ft.

It all depends on the time of year and the location. In general I'd prefer to not have to use live bait, although sometimes and some situations that's the best way to go.
