I will be out this weekend sat/sun/mon, mostly the Hammond but a few other spots too. I should be able to hook up with some other yakkers some of the tme , so keep us informed.
for laker gear, all that info is good. dorions has a bunch of jointed lures in bombers and a few others - think suspending and deep divers. also a fairly small orange rapala has worked there for lakers in the past. for the deep dep water, think white or white and black tubes and swim baits along with orange in the same. the bottom will be bad, covered in logs in the deepest water, so make sure you don't mind losing those deep deep gears. jet divers would help, think the deepest.
for the land lochs there, 2.5-5" rapalas or similar, I've done best with single piece for them, along with spinner and worm, just sixe 2 to 4.
the bait fish are mostly smelts and yellow perch there, so keep this in mind.
for brookies, regular gear.
for smallies, they will be deep still, so again deep running gear, swim baits and tunes run reeeeeeely slow.
