On Friday, Me & A friend are going to Granby and do a little trolling. Anybody that has any info to help us on this would really be appreciated. I'm not real particular on what kind of fish I catch, but I would like to catch something nice. No suckers!

Those suckers are your friends! Keep the suckers and cut them up then throw them on a big hook and you will catch nice macs or browns.

Im no pro but from what ive gathered GO DEEP! If you have downriggrs use them. Otherwise leadcore will get you down there aswell as larg weights.2,3 or 4oz.

The best lures to troll for macks are flatfish or jointed rapalas. They seem to catch more than other lures, and will catch rainbows and browns as well.
You pretty much need a downrigger to troll for mackinaw however. Leadcore line can work in shallower areas.

I appreciate all the suggestions.  I always use suckers, either right now or I freeze them for ice fishing.  I'll let you all know how we do.  I'm kinda new to trolling, but I'll give it my best.  Being retired and having to fish everyday sure tires a man out.

Yep... first thing I discovered upon retirement... wake up in the morning... look out the window... "Oh darn, the cows are standing up, I have to go fishing again..." :D

alot of the time now thru the end of open water season it is hard for me to leave the sunset ramp/cove area and target trout, lead core is especially useful to keep the bite going after say 9am, 4-5 colors, pink taz devil
