Pout are great if prepared right, and the fight on the biguns is fun as well. I recomend LOW.

Lakers are a closely guarded secret wink Havving never successfully iced one, I will deffer to others here. There is some good information to be had if you look around for it.

Tuli'es, a few of the bigger lakes around have em. Millacs used to be the go to, but I would head for BSL. Just dont tell the locals you are not from around there. They can get a little restless/protective about thier lake. sick

eel pout- lake of the woods or leech lake at night, like Jiggin said. Anything you've got that is fishy, some smelt, shiners, sucker heads, whatever. Setlines or'll see some action.

tullies- try some deeper lakes where they exist. Ten Mile, Mille Lacs, Leech, Lake of the Woods. A flashing dropper rig works well.

lake trout- check out the trout species forum. There is a list of lake trout lakes and plenty of people that can help you.

You could probably try to find an extreme northern minnesota lake that has all three. The three species you mentioned are a fish community that inhabits some deepwater canadian shield lakes. Could make for a quite a trip!

    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow.
