Details:Headed out to Winni last Friday for 3 days of fishing.
We arrived at 7:30 am and launched by 7:45. Check in and unpacking could wait!
We hit the 1st spot with 30'water going up to a flat and chunked jerkbaits. We instantly caught smallies in the 2lb range. Wondering if a blade bait would work i threw in 30'.
Bam! I'm like dude this isnt a smallie! I land my 1st lake trout (on accident). Ehh! it worked,Back to jerkbaiting.
We quickly noticed when we hooked 1 smallie a wolf pack would follow. It was awesome. I'd pitch my jig and gulp,hook set and fish on!
My buddy got 2 sets of doubles and landed 1 of them. I never seen that for real before.
Day 2 not so easy & day 3 was pretty good as well in the am. My biggest large was 3.25 and sm was 2.77.
That was my 1st trip to winni but not my last!
