I use a combination method. I will troll with my electric motor only, tight to shore/structure guided by wind direction. Once I find them, I stop, cast, catch a few more ( hopefully ) and then move along if needed. At this time of year, at night, I use differnt cranks than I would for the lazy day troll. I like rattle traps, and also will throw some crawfish imitators. The BIG fish are lazy, until you hook em. Just for fun, when I throw I always use med action spinning gear with max 10lb test. Again, my goal is to catch the 5+lbers and let them swim again. There are a lot of those fish in IL, they are just very rare with the day bite.
Fishing w/buds is a fun social event, while Angling is a serious skill-growth rung-climbing event with loads of self-improvement satisfaction w/each step... Hang a Hog, Not a Smelt
