Swan Lake, ME advice

Recommended Posts

I'm going to Swan lake in Maine for our yearly vacation at the end of August. We rented a house on the lake.

My question is: What's best used in this lake?

Me and my father in-law have tried trolling w/ deep diving rapala's, and shallow runners. We rarely have caught anything in the 3 years I've gone. I'm bringing my boys along this year and want them to catch their first big ones.  Any help would be appreciated!!!!

Thanks, and Tight lines to all.

It is a small lake, drop the TM and fish. Throw your stuff at stuff, docks rocks weeds and wood. Perch and crayfish are food for bass in Maine and where that lake is on the coast maybe alewives.

If you throw spinnerbait and a jig or senko at stuff I am pretty sure you'll catch something. I have never heard of the lake so I am sure it doesn't get a lot of pressure. Might be a place to get a real trophy. Its probably glacial so look for rocks and ledge

Swan lake as you know is CLEAR water. Go to the very North end and fish around the big rocks with natural colored baits. (browns and greens) Lite line is a must 6-8 lb. will cover it. HUGH smallies roam around in this lake, so if the wind blows, fish the wind blown shore with spinner baits. You can't go wrong with white. Use heavy line up to 14 lb. for this to help keep your baits up. Calmer waters use senko's, wacky rig or texas rig around rocks or grass. The drop right off the landing is a good place, so don't pass on it. And the flat with grass is also good. Good fishing, Bass-1
