Details:Winnipesaukee was the location for the Avid Anglers annual out of state 2 day tournament. We launched out of States Landing which is close to Lees Mill. I've been here one other time back in 2011. Definitely different from back then. I suspect between the extra long winter and chemical treatments the grass & cabbage have been destroyed. To touch on the extra long winter some more, the fish showed signs of recently finishing up the spawn. Lots of bloody tails, realistically they maybe finished up 3 weeks or so ago. Very much still in spawn recovery. Anyways, I look forward to these trips, in a great way to build the friendships outside of the boat too.

Friday 7/24 was practice day. I met my buddy Dave at the ramp, who I was also paired with on day 1. We fished from about 7:30am - 4pm. We started with looking for a Largemouth bite, boy was that dismal. After a couple hours and not much to show for it, we went looking for Smallmouth. We found some areas that were holding bait and fish. Nothing outstanding, but we caught some. Tried for some more Largemouth before we pulled, waste of time. My totals on the day were 6 Smallmouth (4 Keepers) 4 Largemouth all shorts, and 5 Pickerel. Dropshot, and C-rig got the better fish on this day.

Day 1 - Saturday 7/25 - Paired with Dave we would hit must the Smallmouth spots from the day before. Change in wind direction didn't help the bite, and the boat traffic up there is rediculous on the weekends. The start of the day was coming for topwater. I got a Smallmouth a little over a lb on the a River2Sea rover early on, and Dave got his only keeper of the day on a topwater too, a nice 3lb Largemouth. Later I would get a 3/4lb, and a 1.47lb on the dropshot. That was it, 3 Smallies @ 3.36lbs.

Day 2 - Sunday 7/26 - Paired with the new guy Jeff. We both had 1 each fairly early, him first with what would day Largemouth Lunker of the day (4.17) on a swimbait on a jighead, and me a 1.66lb Smallie on topwater. About 11am I got my last fish of the day a 1-1/2lb Largemouth in 20ft of water on the dropshot. The rest of the day Jeff would get a couple more good Largemouth on a T-rig worm, and couple topwater Smallies to fill his limit, and 1 more Largemouth to cull a Smallmouth at the end of the day.

Fun to be on the big lake although fishing did not go my way. I finished 11th out 12 with a 2 day total of 6.47lbs. Hopefully this experience will help out the next time I'm up there. 1st place was 20.34lbs
