Can you suggest a spot? We will not have a canoe up there, so do you know if theres a half decent spot from shore somewhere?
I believe the lake's that I fished on were Grundy and Gut lakes. Although I was in a canoe, I was basically 20-30 feet from shore casting towards the shore and reeling back to the canoe......I don't see why it wouldn't work to cast out 20-30 feet from shore and reel back in (same area I was catching them). I had the best luck with top water lures (buzz and spinner baits).
There is an outfitter right on the highway there....you could always rent a canoe for the day. Lots of nice places to paddle in that area.
