If slow rolling a blade means pitching it and retrieving as slow as possible (before hitting the submerged weeds) -- yes. That's exactly what I did for almost the entire first half of the lake.

3/8oz Chart/White spinnerbait -- no trailer. Pitched it to pockets.

I got one good bump on the island and that's it.

After reaching the furthest shore from blast off, I switched the spinner bait with a lipless chart/red crank and used the same approach, but also was trying to work a parallel line across the tules as well. No hits on that.

On my other rod(I have 2) I was throwing a 1/2oz (too big, I realize this now) Brn/blk football jig with sweet beaver trailer.After pitching that everywhere I could think of and coming up with nothing but weeds, I threw on a weightless green pumpkin/purple fleck Senko. No love either.

The water was cold and I saw absolutely no forage. I could have been too close to the bank, who knows?

Nope. I stuck to the shore. At most, 15-20 feet off of it.

well i was throwing 1/4, and 3/8 in november with the water in the low 50's...then got a couple in early jan on the same thing. I like using the smaller ones as you can reel slower and have a slow decent. the bigger ones i feel i have to crank to fast. chart/white is what worked best for me...i also used a black colorado blade...but all was in open water...was too cold to be flippin and pitchen them in 5 ft of water

They were all on the stinko one was solid at least 3.5 maybe 4 and got a sold 2.5 and the others were just 1.5 pounders, my first 2 fish were in back to back cast then the wind picked up and didn't get anything for a good while o well
