Please, please, please....you have to tell me what you were using.  I have been fishing off Mameo for the last few weeks....a lot on the camera (like 75 +), in about the same 7 feet of water, but do you think I can get ANY to bite.... totally frustrating.  I need help

I know what you mean, we had that same problem. We fish them with a single hook and spawn, if you had more that one egg on your hook they wouldn't even look at it, but still even if you had only one egg on they still bit so light and fast that you didn't have time to set the hook and you couldn't see the hit on the spring bobber

we catch this size all day long at Lk. Diefenbaker in Saskatchewan...littera ly tubfulls if we wanted...no worms either. In the early summer they fight like no tomorrow. The biggest we have witnessed coming out is 11lbs. but did hear of a 13lb. My guess is (the above person) is using some sort of small  spinner or jighead...really not sure what the big secret is because what works in one place my not work in another. For instance..we use a trout pellet tied up in a ladies nylon stocking so as not to loose the pellet and have to reload everytime. The reason this pellet system works so well is the fact that the fish were born and raised on pellets from a nearby trout farm..this would definaltely work elsewhere. Just my two cents worth.

Wow 11# thats huge,  must have been a crazy fight even the 3#ers fight like crazy!

Homewrecker:
Just use a small single hook  on a minnow and let it lay on the bottom on the sand .
Whites are bottom feeders .

Yukoner:
They also hit silver spoons jigged 15-20 feet of the bottom, and they hit them hard!
