Well, they're neat slobs...
Wisconsin River Below Petenwell Dam, Juneau County
Kiloguff59 I run the Castle Rock Dam Bait Shop and sell tons of Flicker Shads. I sell mostly the 5, 6 and 7 sizes which would cover depths from about 7 to 13 feet. Top 5 colors would be Firetiger, Red Tiger, Racy Shad, Pearl White and Shad with Red Tiger being the most popular this year. Most guys either troll them behind the boat or on planer boards. I would think speeds of .7 to 1.5 miles per hour would work well. Hope this helps.
Castle Rock Dam Bait Shop
To all the experienced folks here; I'm wondering if I could get some advice on which Flicker Shad lure(s) works best for you (color, size, et cetera) and how you fish them.
Basically, I'm a live bait fisherman, however, on occasion, I will use lures. My buddy turned me on to Flicker Shads and they seemed pretty good. I need to get some and thus my query.
I predominately fish (for anything that will bite) from a boat on the Castle Rock Flowage off May's Point, the Buckhorn area, mouth of the Little Yellow, Alcatraz Island area, up the Wisconsin River below the Petenwell Dam, and all points between. As I'm sure you all know, there's many snags, so I'm thinking deep divers are out.
Thanks for any and all help.

Beautiful morning. The chute was partially open creating some current. We found some channel cats but no flatheads. Fished for walleye while waiting on cats but ended up with a bunch of sheep heads. Nothing to brag about today.
I know where you're coming from. When I find trash out there, I throw it in the back of my truck and get rid of it at the landfill with my own trash. Doesn't cost anything more. While it might be bank fishermen that suffer the consequences, that boat launch is aweful convenient and I'd like to keep using it. This kind of stuff is the reason land owner don't let people cross their property to hunt or fish anymore.
Mainly I was venting, however, maybe someone who isn't a friggin' slob will read this and anonymously call the sheriff or DNR with the bastard's license plate number the next time they see someone litter. I'm on a boat so I can't or, believe me, I would.
I'm steamed, if you couldn't tell. Just yesterday, the Misses and I were driving east on 49th st., near HH, and some jerkoff threw out a McDonald's bag full of garbage in the middle of the road. I stopped and picked it up and threw it out when we got to our destination. I see this ALL THE TIME! And it's not just tourists either.
