The easiest way to catch suspended crappies is to cast-and-swim a 1/16- or 1/32-ounce jig at or slightly above their level. Tiny 1½- to 2-inch plastic grubs, tubes or pre-tied marabou or hair jigs excel for slow, tantalizing sink rates and gentle swimming actions. photo

The end of June and early July are prime time for mayflies to begin hatching out of moderate-depth mud basins. Large mid-lake expanses of featureless, structureless mud bottoms often become food factories for walleyes, with fish either gravitating out across the basin itself, or lining up along the edges of points and humps that intersect with the mayfly production zone.

If you're after really big pike, potentially reaching that elusive 20-pound mark, focus your efforts on large, cool waters with suspended baitfish such as ciscoes or smelt. These lakes historically produce the most truly big pike, hands-down. Lakes like Rainy, Lake of the Woods and Mille Lacs in Minnesota come to mind. So do the Missouri River reservoirs of the Dakotas, as do bays of Lakes Michigan and Superior. Photo

Walleyes set up on midlake structures, where classic live bait rigging with leeches produces loads of fish. In natural lakes, focus on the 12- to 18-foot levels for shallower fish, perhaps dropping down as deep as 25 to 28 feet. button
