I took the kids to Camanche to cool off on Fri. afternoon and there was a huge grasshopper hatch on the shore and even clear out in the middle we saw lots of grasshoppers on the surface??? I also saw 5-6 huge trout!!!! They were all huge in the 5-10 lb. class just crusing the surface....and the surface temp was 80+???? I guess the meal was more important than being comfortable??? Wish I had brought the rods!!!!!

Out in the middle of the main lake!!!! Try using small rapalas on the downrigger if you have them?? If not....I would just free fall a whole nightcrawler with no weight and let it just sink into the 20-30ft range and just drift around.

Thanks for the advice Reel Fun. I do not have a downrigger, but will try the whole nightcrawler. How do I hook the nightcrawler and what size hook?

A small hook will work #2-4 just let the fish take the worm....I bet crickets floated way behind the boat would work great also like 250 ft and just drift?????
