The fish that we are catching have been 60 ft down with live blue backs over a 80 to 100ft bottom. The bait are not living long some remember to change your baits every 10 to 15mins.
As for trolling lead core it’s not catching as many fish but has been working alright. Pull your lead core 8 colors back with a one and a half oz buck tail should get you a few extra fish if you’re seeing a bunch between 25 and 35ft. As we start into September watch the weather as we might have an early top water bite.
