I have not had any measurable success using big motor to ketch fish. Too much vibration, and with all respect to those that do, I will not troll, never have , never will !

I went out yesterday to do some cold weather white bass structure fishing. All four spots I checked had fish hugging the bottom. I caught 10 white bass at each spot then moved on to check the other spots. All spots had the same sonar pattern - 2 pics below. Sidescan does not do a good job of picking up fish hugging the bottom, so I didn't take a pic of it. The pics are of the same spot and the left side of the screen is zoomed in X2. When the fish are hugging the bottom this screen works best to see the fish. I caught a total of 52 fish using a #4 Mepps. The other 12 were: 4 short hybrids, 5 good size yellow bass, 2 crappie and one cat. At each spot I would cast to the fish, let Mepps fall to bottom, start the retrieve suddenly horizontally along the bottom but reel slowly 2 to 4 cranks of my 7.5 ratio reel. After catching a few this way, I would start stomping the boat deck with my #13 foot, and within seconds I could see fish congregating under the boat. Then I worked Mepps around the boat, and they bit it as I slowly reeled it up. Only caught one on the fall. Water temp is now 59.5 degrees F. The spots were east end of Long Ridge in 25 fow, far west part of Long Ridge in 20 fow, Mid-lake Hump in 22 fow and 3-Jug Hump in 18 fow.

This is how I winter fish here at CC. I haven't had to dead-stick to catch fish.
