I'm thinking of dropping the boat in the water Sunday eve.ning for the night bite and taking a couple guys with. Does anyone have any suggestions about where on the reservoir to fish along with depth and presentation? I haven't spent a lot of time out there this year so I'm not sure what to expect. Thanks.
1/8 oz teardrop then 18" up a #4 snelled circle hook, 18" up from that another #4 snelled circle hook, then 2 slip bobber knots, then 1 bead, then nite bobby (available at wal mart). Set the depth to a few ft from bottom at first. Use leecjes hooked once on fat end. You can also use a crawler on one or both. Fish along the north shore from sailboat to marina about 300 yd from shore. Adjust depth as needed. The bite is good srarting about midnight. You will catch many I did this from shore and had a great time last sat and did reak good. I started with lindy rig but got hung up on rocks too much so switched to lindy on non-light slip bobber and we got about six in less than an hour around midnight. Check my report for last saturday you will not be dissapointed.

Jkaboom hit the nail on the head. That approach has worked well from shore for me.
What I wouldnt give to be able to get out 300' from shore on a boat right now. Seems most of the eyes have moved deeper with all the heat in the last few weeks. I have noticed a lot of my sweet spots from March - early June arent hitting like they were...

Based on our float at P-Lo yesterday I would agree with your assessment nightangler. We had action in several areas in the tubes, but mostly on off-shore structure. We caught our walleye on jigheads and leeches The only thing we found in close to shore were assorted bass. We caught most of those on jigheads with 3" gulp craws.
