Is drinking whiskey after catching a limit of walleyes considered day drinking?

Similar to the smoker thread, want to open this up to to a fairly simple topic : 

What lures/baits do you use the most and/or get the most success? 

I want to try something new.  The tackle box is filled to the brim with options, yet go to the 2-3 typical standby's.

The situation : Lake that we're on has fair amount of panfish, largemouth, small northern and a few muskies here and there.  We don't panfish as we find it quite boring and go mostly for bass/northern combo.  Use a lot of spinnerbait's, rattlers, spinners.  Have dabbled with a jig/craw combo and danced it on the bottom, but didn't get much.  Lake varies between 5-10' deep for half of it, then gets deep to about 25-30.

Since you didn't get an answer, I use crankbaits almost exclusively.  Its what I catch almost everything on.  Crappie on up to big Muskie.  I do frequently use spinners when I'm bored.  Plastics almost never work for me, but we're constantly trolling due to the captain's shoulder pain.

I have three tackle boxes.  One traditional “all-purpose” box, a box for plastics, and a box for the heavy (muskie) stuff. 

Texas rigs and jigworms almost exclusively from spring through summer when chasing largemouth.  Lindy and crawler rigs all year for walleye.  Cranks and spoons for northern summer to fall.  Nothing special... walleye rigs are homemade, everything else is off the shelf: when looking to try something new, I just tell the kids to go pick something out... it works more often than you’d expect. 

Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

For Northerns and Muskie, try Williams Whitefish spoons.  I've caught a 40+ inch northern and a 51 inch Muskie on the straight silver spoon in the largest size.

They are not a common brand.  Go their website.  Cabela's has them but they don't sell the largest sizes.  Marine General in Duluth carries all sizes, and you can get them on line from them too.

Hitching the boat up and driving to Gun Lake in SW Michigan this weekend.  Evidently, nobody's ever caught a walleye there despite the DNR having stocked it annually for several decades now.  Probably being scared away by all the pleasure boats.

Looking forward to night fishing and walleye cheeks for breakfast.

From Urban Dictionary:
Quote
Bluefaces
A degenerate , large group of society, who have been lured by the de-evolution of a brain by solely relying on the electric glow of a smart phone, computer and/or tablet.
The Bluefaces will rule this world, and the world will be a darker, less empathetic place to live because of it.

First muskie hunt of the season yesterday on a day the thermometer hit 82.  Needless to say, we got skunked. 

Saw a few on the sonar hovering around 18-20' in different places, but couldn't even coax a nibble.

Good time for casting Raps shallow for walleyes.  Almost like sight fishing.

Not that Troseth would have taken the fish, but times like this cause me to think that the old record books need to be laminated and C&R records should start being kept in every state.
