Highly doubt you'll have to worry about blues spawning in a 10 acre lake. Assuming the primary forage for them is sunfish/crappie/small bass/minnows and what not, i'd start with sunfish and/or large shiners. Fish cover, weed edges, underwater structure.. maybe. I've caught some pretty big Channels and flatheads in private lakes and a more finesse type approach worked best for me, for the bigger fish. Maybe try a balloon rig and let it drift down a weed line or fish where it necks up at night, on bottom. Cut and live. Also don't be afraid to wad up and entire hook with 5 or 6 fat nightcrawlers, or the same with grasshoppers.
