Starting a week long trip at Seagull on 8/6. Would appreciate input on best areas, lures, time of day, methods, etc. for smallies. Thank you very much!

This time of year you want to use top water lures like Zara super spooks, whopper ploppers, PopR, hula poppers, jitterbug. Also don’t forget to try wacky worms and Mepps spinners.

For locations find rocky points, trees hanging down in the water, underwater rock walls and fish there.

My wife and I were there a couple of weeks ago. Ned Rigs outfished everything else, hands down. Fish it slowly and keep in contact with the bottom. We found some very productive reefs in the western end of the lake. A depth finder is invaluable.

Thank you very much. Love top water and using wacky plastic. For the plastic and mess what depth are they being found and are there specific colors that are winners?

a lot of down trees & shadows in the water on seagull , go into stealth mode & try ultra shallow too.

I use a Garmin Striker 4, pretty light weight except the battery. Also have seen others post here and FB that they use the same setup.
