    RE: Your best trolling bait for LOTW

    in the early season of trolling i love using triple d's on the woods and as the water gets colder i change to 10 inch jake's. i try and run the bait's from 12 to 14 feet.

    If you can find a couple sometimes on ebay, try a straight Terminator crank bait. Had a couple days on Whitefish Bay this year after a storm went through and caught more muskies than I had caught in the previous 4 years. We were trolling because were marking majority of the fish suspending 14-20 feet down over deeper water.

    Hands down Muskie Train's Diesel Bait. Built extremely tough and can be trolled at a good speed without "blowing out" These baits rock South Eastern Wisconsin lakes!

    Our cisco's are close on average 10''. The 10 to 13'' baits are the strongest selling and seem to put alot of bigger fish in the boat. I carry approaching 60 different colors of 10'' jakes for a reason.

    9 and 13 in grannies
    hookers
    kraves
    depth raiders
    big game (my favorite lure this year so far)
    hose baits
    custom x
    legend baits
    harbour masters
    frankie baits
    blue water baits

    I know believers have put many a big fish in the net over the years but i am not a fan!
    Also excited to grind the shield with 10'' triple d's

What colors do you think are best on Whitefish bay should I be using natural colors like a cisco or a trout color or the bright colors I know whitefish is realy clear so I was thinking natural colors.

    I have been fishing in Whitefish Bay the past 20 years and the vast majority of the muskies caught have been on natural colors. As I said earlier my best lure was a blue and white straight Terminator crank bait. Here is a picture of the jointed version. The model I use is 12 ' long.
