I think the spawn was a really big window this year. We went in the 14th and were encountering beds already getting dirty from post-spawn. We were still able to site fish a lot of smallies and caught countless in the 17-19 range and numerous 20+.
We were on the north end of South Arm. We also tore them up on Hanson and Ester.

Well done! We were on the north and south arms June 9-15 and there were some on beds then. Ned and buzzbait worked well

Oof winter rainforest to desert lol. Not sure which I would prefer out of those two. Glad you got out to get some fish though.
