You are on the right track with jerk baits and tubes. Smallmouth are up shallow, look for rocky shoreline and points. Walleyes have been mixed in with the smallmouth. Large jerk baits worked over weeds have been producing pike. Remember one fish over 18 inches on walleyes but I would encourage you to put all walleyes back, especially the larger ones, until the population rebounds.
