Went up to the shack for a long weekend over the 4th. Overall good weather aside from the winds, 20-30 mph for 3 days straight. Started out in 10-20fow , working spinnerbaits and deep diving cranks, managed to come up with a couple of big rockbass and punk northerns. Moved out to 20-35fow and started marking lots of fish in 28-31fow. Tried working a variety of plastics vertically, but the winds and waves made that virtually impossible. Put out the driftsock in an attempt to make a controlled slower drift over deeper water, picked off a dozen small and largemouth up to 16". Saturday at dusk I lost two dandy smallmouth burning a war eagle spinnerbait, both came off after a few acrobatic jumps next to the boat. Sunday late evening was best bite, Zorro shortarms and #5 mepps in 5-10fow worked well. Mixed bag, mainly huge rockbass but did manage a couple nice largemouth. Our target was trophy smallmouth but landed none over 16". All fish were released.
