Default Granby has been slow for me.......

I went again Tuesday, beautiful day with sunshine much of the day. There was no slush and 18" of solid ice. It took all day to catch 4 19-20 inch Lakers near the Dike 3 ridge in 50 to 80 feet of water.

Sounds like a good day at Granby to me. But what do I know?

What I'm seeing is the bottom fish are very picky, theres a high population of Mysis Shrimp they are full of and just aren't hungry.

You may want to try some deep water for suspended dark ones.
With the Snow cover (dark water) the Mysis feed mid water during the day
You'll find them in over 100' they like to suspend 70-90' but will also feed in 30' -60' when you get into them its fast action as they are much more aggressive than the bottom huggers.

There's better places to fish than dike 3, considering how pressured it gets.

Also Try Swiss cheesing the ice and drilling multiple holes all over the humps. Chances are they were probably on the move swimming up and down the humps looking for food. My technique that I like using on granby that tends to work for me... is finding the top of the humps with my vex, and if it doesn't produce in 10 mins, going back 7 feet deeper and repeat process. More often than not, eventually i find steady action. Changing baits and downsizing works too.

Good advice from Dave there. If you're at Granby and you aren't consistently marking fish, you're in the wrong spot!

This time of year I go to one jig for eaters: a white glow Genz worm in the biggest size you can find. Tip with a smidge of sucker (or not) it's the perfect jig to get those eaters who've been fished over all year. It's heavy and gets down fairly quickly. Give it a try.

That looks like a good bait jig, I will add that if your after picky bottom feeders go with the lightest jig that you can get down and feel the bottom with, not the heaviest and set the hook hard on the tiniest bump.

Like I said the deep water suspended bite is what's happening now and for that you can use a normal tube jig and sucker meat.
