Up Sizing Soft Plastics ?

I am catching alot of 2+ lbs fish, and would like to catching something a little bigger.

Dont get me wrong, nothing is wrong with catching 2 pounders, but I also would like to eliminate alot of the smaller fish as well.

I am using alot of 5 inch soft plastics, and would like to up size to 6 inches or bigger.  I may even do as big as 7+ until I can gain more confidence with a bigger bait.

After all, if they arent producing I can always down size, but I would like to start big for once.

I have a quiet a big of 6 inch baits on order, but its a small upgrade though.  I dont think it will be big enough to notice a difference.

Does anyone have any suggestions or tips?

Thanks

instead of up-sizing baits I would change locations and apply the PATTERN you have found to new water.........I have found that sometimes DOWNSIZING to finesse baits will do the trick as older fish are smarter fish........just a thought in a different direction.

Get out EARLY in the mornings and throw a buzzbait till your arm falls off, the big fish will come.  Then fish normally the rest of the day  Tongue  I have never used over 7-8 either.
