To the guys suggesting evergreen wild hunch - are you talking about the 8 foot diver (WH-8)? I've caught a few fish on the original WH-5 but it only dives about 5 feet. I picked up some of the WH-8 this winter to try.

I have also done well on the Spro Little John MD for this depth range. I don't have confidence in many crankbaits but this one catches for me.

Luhr Jensen 1/4 ounce Hot Lips. Don't let the non conventional bill spook you, it's a great bait.
