I usually just troll my riggers with long leads, and 4 planer boards. Just with mono.
The only long lines I have are 400 copper and 13 colour leadcore so that stuff runs too deep for the spring when the fish are in shallow.

I like mag lips or kwikfish, j11ís j13ís and these old rebel cranks I got. Spoons. Never have run meat in the spring

I'm sure meat would work in the spring.  I catch a laker on meat years ago.  Last year spoons was so productive in April and May, there was no need to use anything else.

won a small tournie 1st week of may using meat, took all of our fish that day, think the past year king of the lake spring tourie, meat played a big role as well, definetly worth running

I used a meat rig with artificial herring behind a purple flasher today and got 2- 9 lbs Lakers. I caught the other on a spin doctor with green fly. Hit a few more but only landed those. Launched at Jordan. 35-40 fow.
