Splake and Rainbows

Recommended Posts

I am looking for some information on Splake and Rainbows. I will be doing some fishing while grouse hunting this fall sept- oct. Does anyone have suggestions on lures and location for either of these fish. Can they be caught from shore. I have never fished for either before. It will be in a small lake that I will be fishing.

If you would care to let me join you fishing there anytime this summer i can figure out what will work on them with what kind of lake it is. And show ya how. my email is [email protected] if you are interested. It would be nice to fish somewhere else besides the crosby mine pits.

mnwild14, the rainbows should be close to shore. As the season for trout lakes wines down the rainbows will be moving in close to shore. Nightcrawlers under a bobber or jig and twister will do the trick. Twister colors that work for me are white, brown, black, and purple. Jigs should be no bigger then 1/8 with 1/16 working the best for rainbows.
Splake are most commonly found at the bottom, in deeps of 20 feet or more. Use split shoots and a plain hook with a inflated nightcrawler just off the bottom.

Good Luck.

mnwild14~we have always had good luck fishing rainbow trout using Berkley Powerbait, with the majority of the time chartreuse being the most productive color, but also good luck on the hot pink and white. Benjamin Lake is producing well this time of year and it is stocked almost every year with rainbow.

Most of the above info is dead on. Looking for a cool trip? Tofte lake holds beautiful splake, chunky rainbows, and nice pockets of ruffs. Camp right on the lake. Hunting trails and other lakes within minutes.
(Gawd, I should be working for the Chamber up here. I sound like a commercial)

    • I think you should get one and we can go all over Burntside and Snowbank this winter in search of lake trout. Just keep your shirt on! 😀
    • Just don’t use crossbow when it’s above 80 or going to be above 80 or it kills the lawn as well. It’s a great product, spray on clover in the morning  and it’s brown by evening. 
    • Finally got to someone that does this for a living and well respected. Triclopyr at 16% with 34% 2-4-d is in a readily available product called Crossbow. He highly recommends it. Spot treat the weeds not the whole lawn. Weed b Gon max works great on the rest of the weeds. 
    • Well things are cooling down but the fishing over deep water continues to boat fish!  Didn't slay them but got 2 more eater's this weekend over the deep water trolling for about an hour and half towards sunset.  Benn using Rapala Shadow Raps as of late and have been impressed.
    • Need to take advantage before we play Boston and Washington . Be up by 4 or 5 games when we get to those series.
    • Did another round of cottage bacon ..... 10 days brining turning the package ever other day, rinse and rest overnight in the fridge, smoke and rest over night in the fridge, and then slicing. It is a long two week process, but well worth it! If you’ve never done it, I high recommend giving it a try! I did 4 pork butts and ended up with abound 20 lbs.... gave about half of it away already, but have 4 more butts ready to brine before winter!        
    • All puppies have been sold !
    • They need to take full advantage of the easier games coming up.  I would like to see them get about 5-6 games ahead again.
    • Well painting is getting there.  The fenders and swing arm/axles are fully painted but I only managed to get about half of the frame painted.  I will get it finished up this week.  I have too because I have a large load of rock coming to finish my driveway expansion so I have a place to park my fish house this winter haha.
    • O yes I completely forgot about them and they are practically in my back yard. Thanks.
