Take a look at the stocking reports. Trout waters can be warm then.

We fished round pond up on Whitney park on Friday from guide boats. Did well. Nothing huge but some nice ones. They hit top water in early morning and then we connected on worms, rapalas, storm shad as the day continued. We ate lunch out on an island and had a great time. If I get s chance this week I am going to try a few of your suggestions. One quick question. I found the fabled wabbler. Now how do I rig it up.

The wobbler probably has at least one split ring attached to it. Place a small barrel swivel on this split ring. Off the swivel tie a 24" piece of mono with your hook choice tied to the other end. You can make this leader section shorter or longer but 24" is a good starting point. 18" seems too short to me though. Also, I like to make this leader from a lighter test than what is on my reel.(in case you get hook snagged you will lose the hook....not the wobbler)

On the other end of the wobbler you may or may not have a split ring. Either way, attach your reel line here using a small snap swivel.

If you don't use swivels your line will become a mess!

One thing I learned about wabblers this year. They come in different weights. Not sizes, weights. Most of the newer ones I see for sale are light weight--aluminum I'm thinking but thin. They also make heavier ones that are labeled as such. I noticed these in the Crossroads when I was in there. Also, I believe that most of the old ones are of heavier guage metal than the light ones found today. This is definitely a factor to consider when you are trying to get deeper without using a sinker. I suppose there are advantages to both but suspect the reason most of the ones in stores today are the lightweight variety is due to price and cost to the manufacturer.

True.....I have two #1's, both the same size and color but one had a sticker noting it was heavier.

I also see/ feel a difference in the Gilbertsville/ vs Canadian manufactured spoons of the same size.

I just weighed two #5's in copper. One from Canada and the other from NY. They both weigh 4.3 grams. Both had split rings on either end. Go figure.....
