Looking for advice on technique not necessarily spots...new to hybrid fishing

I have gone out twice in the last month. Caught 6 the first trip and 13 yesterday. Only 2 keeper size hybrids and several shorts with a few whites mixed in.

Trolling helbenders/deep divers with pet spoon at 2-2.5 mph. I also jigged one on the first drop immediately after we hooked up trolling... So were catching fish steadily, but only a few good size ones.

Will the Thumper produce bigger bites? does thumping work while trolling? or is there another technique we should try for bigger fish? or a certain time of year is better?

Perfectly happy with our results so far and will continue to try new spots around the lake, Just wondering if there is a techique that targets bigger hybrids? Bigger pet spoons and or Rattle traps?

As far as a report goes, marking and catch around old ponds in the main lake. 20-30' water. Most of the strikes are on the hellbender with a egg weight and silver spoon

Thanks for any tips

Try the Jet Divers.I actually like them better than the Hellbenders.

Keep your powder dry and watch your backtrail

Thanks! I'll try those out. I like that they come in various sizes and depths.

Going to try some swim baits and maybe a umbrella rig behind them in a few weeks
