Is that limited to one perticular lake ?

Because results could be different in other bodies of water  ;)

for soft water I use a one ounce bucktail jig tipped with minnow, I don't see why it wouldn't work for ice sized down a bit.  I bought some bleeding white tube jigs I am going to try, as well as green.  I would think the pimple has to be up there. Some of the names I dont recognize, post some pics!

1 - Buzzbombs
2 - White Tubes
3 - Swedish Pimples

I've bought a couple of new spoons, the are called "Deadly Dicks" spoons and I think after this years field tests, they may make it into the top 3.

Wow some bold statements on outfishing people. I glad you have some success!
1. White tubes
2. a bucktail with a large minnie
3. a sonar in white (sleeper)

Not a big laker fishermen in NYS, but in canada they crush white tubes in 80-90 fow

The Upfold Bucktail Jig with stinger hook. This jig has caught more lakers on Otsego Lake than any other jig in the past two seasons.

I tried one of those that the dude sold me in the parking lot.  they look good, really good actually but they are not panacea for lakers there that I hoped they would be, head to head, the right spoons in the correct colors still out fish them.
