Hi Italo, I am going up to fish lake weslemkoon this weekend. I am fishing for crappie and brook trout. I was wondering if you had any tips or lures that I should use and areas I should look out for. Thanks, love the show

brian_crappie02I did not know Weslemkoon had crappie, just Lake Trout, Brook Trout, Smallmouth Bass, Pumpkinseeed & White sucker. Anyway, for crappie, they should be in shallow water less than 10′. Best fishing will be in shallower bays around boat docks and trees that have fallen in the water. Best presentation will be to use a slip-bobber rig with 4 lb. test, 1/8 oz. jihgead/1″ plastic TriggerX creature grub. For the brook trout, they will be transitioning from shallows to deeper water. Best way to locate them will to troll for them using a small flasher (4-6″ long), followed by a 24″ leader, a hook & worm. Once you find a stretch/depth where you catch at least 2-brook trout, you can start casting the Rapala Countdown size #3 & #4, or cast small 1/8 & 1/4 oz. spoons.
