Lately we have been getting the saugeye and crappies off of main lake points around 20' of water. Jigging spoons with no bait on them is all I ever use. Haven't used wax worms or any type of live for over 20 years. At times if the fish are looking more than biting I will put 1/3 or 1/2 of a Gulp wax worm or maggot on 1 of the 3 trebles to give them a target.
This year has been 3-5 lookers for every fish that bites. Even for a buddy of mine that uses live wax worms. I have caught a lot of crappies and a dozen or so saugeye out of Evergreen this year, but have had to work for every one of them. Not the best bite this year, but not the worst either.
