good boraxed eggs are my prefered method for bait and bobber....... Don't forget about First Bite Jigs....... small black and red for summer...... and Orange/white or pink in winter.

If the water is that clear, watch your jig/bait instead of your float. With polarized glasses you should be able to see the take. The fish is simply closing his/her mouth and then letting go. Most of my fish in clear conditions like this are caught by watching the fish. Sight fishing at its best.

Use flouracarbon (sp) line and some first bite micro jigs. I haven't used them yet but heard and witnessed many times fish in about 2'-3' catching some nice fish. Just pay close attention to your bobber. if it starts to go down... reel a little bit to see if your snag if not reel til you feel the pressure and fish on!!! Hope this helps..
