Default First time muskie fishing lake st clair Help!

Looking for someone to give me the whole guide on muskie trolling. (or link to a great site)
I have all the gear and lures necessary. Spinners, body baits, planar boards, leaders etc...
Weve always been walleye and salmon fisherman and never really got into muskie fishing.

What set up would you run? How far back do you run the lures from the boat? what is the point of the inline weights when you have a crankbaits with a lip on it? We tried going once and got nothing but plenty of weeds on our lures. where would you troll. over weed beds? how deep of water. why do people put there rod tips in the water near the boat?
We'd be launching out of selfridge and wanting to fish around anchor bay. how far out do you troll.

I know this is a very broad topic but definitely new to the muskie ring.
Thanks for any input!!!!
