GREEN BAY, Wis. – In previous events, there’s always been a previous history of the lake and a certain style of fishing can typically be predicted. This week’s Mystery Lake, now known as Lake Michigan, is just as unfamiliar with the fans as it is with the anglers. The only thing we know thus far is that it’s a smallmouth-dominated fishery and it can be anybody’s tournament to win.

Here’s how they picked:

Matt Greenblatt:

Edwin Evers: “He’s versatile and he can fish shallow and deep.”

Nate Wellman: “He’s a local and he can finesse fish as well as power fish.”

Fred Roumbanis: “I’ve seen him around some good stuff and he’s another versatile angler.”


Dustin Wilks:

Aaron Martens: “He’s really good in this type of water.”

Todd Faircloth: “He’s got momentum coming off a win from last week.”

Randy Howell: “He’s driven to win the AOY race.”


Marty Robinson:

Jason Williamson: “He’s been catching fish pretty good this week.”

Casey Ashley: “He understands big bodies of water.”

“I have no idea how to even pick three guys in this event.”


Jason Williamson:

Dean Rojas: “Never know if he may find a frog bite.”

Jonathon VanDam: “Local knowledge if there is any.”

Nate Wellman: “He’s a good angler in the Northern bodies of water.”
