25/06 we couldn't catch one on a minnow. We caught all of them on jigs. The jig was a red head with a black eye and white tail. We would catch them close to bank in shallow and out in the middle in the deep. It wasn't consistent at all. The only thing consistent was you had to use jigs.
The big ones had eggs so they are starting to spawn. IT'S TIME! :biggrin:
