A few questions - is the lake your fishing only have Splake and other trout or does it have numerous other gamefish in it? What time of day are you fishing for them. I might be able to help with more details - for now just some general info - This time of year can be great for splake. They come shallow to feed at night and during low light periods. Troll the shoreline 8-10 feet deep with small spinners or spoons. I like red vibrax spinners. Run long lines as they are spooky. If your shore fishing, get a map of the lake and try to get to the steepest drop of near the deepest part of the lake for casting during the daylight hours. Cast out and let it sink all the way to the bottem, then one quick hard tug to get it off the bottem and slowly reel it up. As it gets darker move from the area your at to and area where it would be shallower - what I would call a feeding shelf. But must still have access to the deepest part of the lake. Cast across this "shelf" and reel in quicker than you were before. Good luck.
