For open water I like a 3.5" tube in white or chartreuse on a 1/2 to 1 ounce jig. For ice fishing, I like a 2.5" tube in the same colors fished on a 1/8 - 1/4 ounce jighead. I always tip with fresh sucker or carp meat if possible, preferrably from a small sucker or carp so I can cut the bait into 4 chunks and so the entrails are included on my piece of bait. If I can't find fresh small suckers or carp, I like frozen anchovies. I always use a stinger treble on the main hook and use a piece of bait about the size of a postage stamp.
Many of the bigger macks being caught at blue mesa recently are being caught on slow trolled flatfish. Use about a 4" flatfish trolled on a downrigger or with leadcore line.
