    Wilson River help

    Not much experience with summers... Not really sure what to use. I went all day fishing my normal bobber and jig that I would use during the winter but the confidence isn't there like it is with winter fish. Wondering if I should float a sand shrimp or throw dark spinners like I've been hearing.
