You might want to add some small inline spinners to your tackle box. White, yellow, or chartreuse rooster tail or mepps about an inch to an inch and a half seem to work well for many of the fish around here. Cast parallel to the banks where the little minnows hide and you can usually pick up a bass, cat, white perch, white bass, or even a sunfish. Ultralite to light gear works best for this size lure. The ones with the feather tails seem to work better than the bare hooks.
