I am heading on a brook trout quest second week of June.  The lake is about 60 foot deep and guessing thermocline at that time is probably 25.  What lures/techniques should work here?  Thinking jigging a blade lure or trolling small spoons, but looking for other ideas.  I will have a fish finder, but should I focus near shore or farther out?  Not sure what works-lake trout but smaller lures?

I mostly use small spinners and spoons (ex. Little Cleos) but, also have had success with small rapala type minnow presentations.

Most of the brook trout lakes I'ved fished have been fairly small so covering most of the water hasn't been an issue. Lake trout tactics- such as fishing shallow early (May) and moving out deeper as water temperatures rise. Although it is shaping up as an abnormal year with ice out not likely to occur until after the opener.
