Trout-heads.?..Lakers, Landlocked

4 posts in this topic

Say you were fishing Lake Trout in a Canadian deep water lake in early June. The fish have gone back deep. What would your tackle and technique choices be?

We have gotten a few on big tubes and trolled Cleos.

Any info, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Best of Luck,

If you have a vexilar/graph try to locate structure and do some deep jigging w/ buckshots, swimbaits and buzzbombs. Otherwise try pulling spinner rigs w/ minnows or deep cranks like rapala taildancerdeeps/reefrunner deeps. You could also sink a smelt/ciscoe on the bottom from a your campsite/choice location.Good luck!

You can also pull any kind of flutter spoons with some weight attached. I run my weight above a swivel with a 4-6 leader attached to that.

Lakers, even if they are deep, will come up and hit something that is in the top 25% of the water column.

The easiest tactic I have used were bottom bouncers and a 3/4 oz little cleo. I know the last time I fished for lakers it was a little later I believe early July. We fished anywere from 45 feet down to 100 with bottom bouncers anywhere from 3 oz to 6 ounces.

However the way in which we got the most was with the use of line counters, dipsy divers, and spoons or large rapalas. with the line counters and dipsy divers we could find the depth where the majority of the trout were hanging out.

However while we got the majority of the trout deep we did get the occational one shallow in the water collum as stated by lakerunner

    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
    • So are you saying what happened to me did not happen ? We not talking about a 4 inch concrete slab , it is a thin layer of gyp crete that covers the pex , it has the consistency of water when poured and sets up fast, it is self leveling and any movement in the pex shows up and cant be undone . Yes if it was fastened continuously it could not move but that would be ridiculous . As so this discussion !  
    •   Just like all the other teams do. He gets the same shot over and over against every team. Not sure how you let a guy with 18 power play goals float like that. Doesn't hurt Bakstrom is setting it all up. You leave him and just cover Ovi and he will light you up.
    • Good looking driveway always enhances the value of the home and attract friends and neighbors. Nowadays, the commonly used paving materials are concrete slabs and paving stones. Concrete slabs are easy to install, but the material takes a time to dry and cure. Whereas, paving stone installation are ready to use immediately upon completion. Like, last month my neighbor had hired the services of driveway paving in Suffolk County contractors to lay a brick paver patio in their garden area. After the completion of installation, it has appreciated the value of their property.
    • Caught a 19" Bass fishing for Crappie last night!!   I was using 2.5" Gulp Minnows on a small Jig catching Crappie and i couldn't get a good pic as it was dark and couldn't get flash to come on my phone.   4 pound test .... nice little fight .... Had a few nice swirls nip my Bobber also five minutes before that.   Crappies were 10" and thin (hungry)  all returned for some catch n release recreational fishing!!   
    • Just wondering if anyone has done this and if so I'd love to see pictures I'm going to make this my spring project 
    • Dude that's pretty awesome data and pics/video.   Way cooler stuff than when I was a middle school kid.
