Was out there from 8 - 2 and found some spots worked good and others were very slow so I switched it up a bit until I found something that worked even though it was wierd how different fish were biting in some areas. Not too bad since it was a last minute decission this morning to try it from the banks though. Had 8 trout up to 12" by boat dock C then went over just east of dock A where I pulled in 8 yellow perch (biggest was 9"). After lunch I hit the area west of dock A where I targeted smallmouths (10") and brought in 7 then by the dam where I landed the last small.
8 of each species for the day was pretty cool since I don't think I've ever accomplished that feat. Most were on the small side but it's better than the alternative.

Thanks. It was a bit slow until I'd find out what was working in each spot. Must have spent at least an hour in each area without a bite until I found the right combo and the last smallie took forever to get.

What were you using? Just off the bank or by boat?

I was on the bank since it was a last minute decission. Otherwise I would have loved to use the float tube since the weather was calm. For the trout at dock C I couldn't get a bite until I used a bright green roostertail. The yellow perch were, of course, biting worm on the bottom. The bass were the strange one for me though. I was actually trying for more trout and finally started getting bites with a red panther martin and a bit of worm on the hook.
Good luck if you do go and remember that they seem to be very picky lately at Hagg. Nothings worse for me than to sit with powerbait just because "everyone else is doing it" but not much (or nothing) is happening. Keep experimenting until something works.
