Pros' picks for Green Bay

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.

Matt Greenblatt:

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