Lake Trout

Recommended Posts

It's that time of the year again. The lakers move up shallow, chasing schools of smelt, which are spawning now. Water temps are in the mid-40's, moving up slowly. Perfect conditions for vertical jigging while drifting drop offs. Fished for 6 hours yesterday and brought 7 over the gunnels - all released. The really big girls haven't arrived yet, but we're getting close. :)

Deep diving jerk baits work well for those lakers when they are chasing smelt.

I'm a lake trout fanatic, I ice fish for the trophies every year.

 

This pig was 39" long and 37 pounds with an incredible girth. It was released immediately after the photo.

Beautiful fish. I'd love to catch one, never have had the chance though.

Now THAT is a laker! Awesome fish.

Here's a shot of my largest from last years. She was 31" long and released alive:
