    You can use a variety of baits, depending on the season. The main thing is like most places...look for where the fish are holding, position your boat so that you can place the bait in the right spots, talk to some locals up there. The main guy being Stu McKay at Cats on the Red. He can point you in the right spots and tell you what baits to be using.

    ive had lots of experience fishing at lockport when the fishings good like last year they were pretymuch everywhere but i had the best luck fishing curent breaks from the boat but you can also hammer them from the right spots on shore almost all my fish were cought on cut golyeye or drum on a 8/0 circle hook 3-5oz weight all on 30-50lb test. also my normal rig is about 2ft long but a few days i couldnt buy a bite till i switched my rigs to a little over 4ft long so if your not having any luck try a longer leader
