The Hunt for a Lake George Monster

Got a little closer to a Lake George monster today!  We pounded fish - probably caught 20 on a jerkbait before putting on a Rapala DT20 with my new Okuma Scott Martin Med. Hvy 7'7" cranking rod.  About the third cast caught a nice smallie - probably pushing 4 pounds.  All fish were caught on a rock hump, but the big fish came on the deep side off the hump.  Seems like the big fish are hovering off in deep water - anywhere between 30-50 FOW - recovering from the spawn and picking off easy food.  Water temps creeping closer toward 70 - today they were at 68.
