Those in the know may be putting their boats in when most anglers are taking them out to head home. During the spawn, large females often stop feeding by day and get very spooky, making nighttime the right time for shots at these giants. Sneaking into shallow areas with a rocky or hard bottom, using just your electric trolling motor, sets you up for epic action after dark. Once in position, fan-cast shallow-diving stickbaits, such as the Rapala HJ12 Husky Jerk. If you're not getting bit working slowly, switch to a slightly faster steady retrieve with occasional twitches of the rod.
