When fishing is slow, use two poles. Take one and tie a search lure like a Flutter Spoon on and get aggressive with it. The second pole should be used as a dead stick, tip-up, or Jaw Jacker with your favorite bait/lure. Fish are drawn in by the flashing search lure and then find your second lure and bite!
