OK, so they won't be shallow any more. Take a sonar. I would probably start with a three way or snap weight and a spoon, like a doctor spoon or a daredevil, although they really seem to eat floating rapalas too. Troll fairly slowly, watching the sonar to see if you see any fish.

Switching from a 19 foot grumman square stern to kevlar really hurt my trolling success in quetico.

Vertical jigging with heavy jigs with white tubes can work also if you don't drift too fast.
