Depends - I use both. Early morning in the fall when the trout are top feeding, the floaters work well. Rest of the time I usually use the suspend/sinker models.The only Mirrolure I've got seems to be more of a subsurface floater that will dive between 6 inches or a foot on steady retrieve. That article seemed slanted toward the sinking/suspending versions, except for the big 70 series floater. Is it the general consensus around here that the sinking/suspending ones are preferred for "our" atlantic-natured fish?
