MetalBuckle(FishGod) says on other post;

Back to basics and finese fishing..

Try this, one line on a sensitive ultralight rod or spring tip, hook a minnow through the skin on its back wth a small hook, split shot 1 ft up. Drop down and set minnow 6 inches to 1 ft off bottom. Leave it there.

Now setup another rod with a small flash spoon, williams etc, use a hole about 3 feet away, drop this down and jig the spoon about 1 to 3 feet off bottom, not too eratic. Setup a flasher on this line, once you call in a fish ie see a mark. Stop jigging and move to your minnow line. Slowly jig this minnow line once or twice to get the minnow swimming and leave it again, wait for the hit.. Never fails . Good Luck.

Read through this years reports, a few have mentioned what they had success on, look at the pictures some show what they were using. Minnow hooked through the back, drop shot a foot up the line just off the bottom. Keep your minnows fresh.

Pay specific attention to dawn and dusk, i find keeping lights low and noise to a minimum very helpful

You’re laughing then! Simcoe is way tougher than Nipissing! Hopefully Snowfari puts you on the fish and if so you’ll do fine. Anything tipped with a minnow when it’s hot and hook and split shot when they’re finicky. I live near Simcoe and still have yet to pull anything but a perch through the ice there lol.
