Need to find some big green fish for Saturday.  0 for 4 so far. Sucked it up on Cob. Last chance for me until June. :hmm:

On Winni I always look to get me 5 first. This time of year if you start at spindle point (the light house) and work both sides of the point and into the pockets (the large cove in the south side of the point has been money for me. I like to throw a suspending jerkbait and the brown wigglewart with the yellow eyes. A weightless fluke is a solid choice as well if they are finicky. Then on to both sides of Sally's gut and then on the north side of sallys gut to the easy is a cove that is usually electric this time of year. Usually doesn't take long to get 5 smallies in the 2-3lb range. For the large green ones I go to the large marinas and flip those. Just be mindful of all the crossbars and cables they run in those deeper marinas. The marina in Meredith is usually my go to.

Good luck

I was able to get up there last week and fish 2 half days (8-1) as I had my family with me. I followed my post above and was able to boat 30 smallies between 1.5-3lbs. The second day got another 17 fish. I brought the boat back to the marina on the final day of the trip and got 10 fish in about 35 minutes. The largest of the trip was 3lb 4 oz, so no trophies. It was still pre-spawn and was 56 degree water up there and by the end of the week the males were just starting to set up on beds. Overall a really successful week. All fish were on baits I made. Most were on jerkbaits, some on the "little bear" (a KO of spro little john in bluegill), a "fat bear" (ko of wigglewart in brown craw). and when I needed to slow it down I was drop shotting a drop shot bait in my signature color (smoke with purple iridescent) and drop shotting a wacky 4" stickbait in GP/purple flake.

OK. Unless you want to risk fishing for big smallies up north (and destroying your lower unit), you'll probably be making a long run south.
