For what it's worth, my experience for wipers has been Storm shad jigs, shad bodies on differing size lead heads, rat'l traps, 3 and 4" deep minnow cranks, white lead head bucktails.
The cranks were in moving water, deepdivers in relatively shallow fast water, must have bounced off bottom, looking like feeding minnow, or maybe even crawdad to fish?
Other lures work in Ohio River, I usually found white bass with UL rig, then cast out side of school with heavier spinning combo, and deeper, caught wipers. And sometimes I just caught the wipers on UL! Then the fun begins
No success in East Fork lake as yet, except for dinks during winter crappie fishing.
Keep us posted, we're all learning!
