Haven't purchased live bait in a long time. Ice jigs(tungsten usually) and plastics/Gulp types under a spinning or slip bobber has been doing a number on them for years

All good above, and also try Ratsos with finesse tails, fish two in tandem under a float.

I use waxworms, spikes and my ice jigs under a small bobber, fixed or slip depending on water depth.

Small plastics for spinning gear and whatever makes them happy on the flyrod. Got into targeting panfish with a flyrod last fall. Can't wait for them during the spawn.
