Pit Lake Trout

Recommended Posts

Hey all,
I am new to this site. I am extremely happy to see the number of people that fish the GR area for Trout. I am heading over to Pit Lake this weekend. Has anyone fished it lately, or do you know how others have been doing?

Thanks

Eric

Wow, that was quick!
I am looking to catch any kind of trout.
I have fished Caribou, Kremer, Pit, and lucky, as well as many rivers along the north shore. I fish mostly trout in the winter time. I am aiming for a few lakers or Splake this weekend. I have done well in the past at all of these places but I have not been out for trout this year yet. I have been going for Crappie mostly.
I will be looking for you Rolls!
I am not sure yet what I will have with me for transpotation but I will have either a 2 or 4 person blue clam. I usually head towards the right side coming from either access.

I take 61 East and then take a left on this unplowed road which heads accross a snowmobile trail and goes to a access towards the end of the lake. I may just plan to get there early as well. If there isn't much action I may head to Caribou. Another guy on another board had mentioned that he caught a couple nice Splake out of there last Sat. I may try a little bit of everything! What do you usually use on Pit? I like a couple different things. I am planning to try a pearl Power Bait tube jig with a pink head inside it maybe put a little salted minnow on it. Not sure yet.

Rollz, You got it all wrong, the Wabler tipped with a lively chub and a waxy. Hehe. Seriously though, if dat trout is hungry he'll eat anything, Rollz likes to run around without any bait and he even gets em. It doesn't hurt to add some scent on there though. I like to use a nice shiny spoon when the sun is out, flashes real good, same with a shiner, it has that same flash. Give em what you got and they'll eat it if they're willing.

good fishin

Just an update:

I headed over to Pit on Sat. morning. There really were not that many people there. I guess the cold scared a few away. Anayways, I set up around 8 am I dropped a Pearl power tube jig down about 72 feet and continued to set up. In about 5 minutes I noticed one coming up on my jig. He bit at it, and dove down and came back and hit it again. The fish did this for several minutes. I just wasn't able to hook him! Theyt were not soft bites either. I can only think that my bait must have been too big. Anyways, after that, the rest of the day was dead. A great start to some slow fishing! They have not seen the last of me!

Rollz, I did look for ya, couldn't tell which one was you. It seemed like everyone had 4 wheelers. Maybe next time.

I also went out on Caribou on Sun. I started in about 25ft. of water which I thought was too shallow. However, the house next to me was in 18ft of water and had already caught one 2.5lb laker!! Wierd huh. Anyway, I did catch a very nice "slab" Perch anyhow. But after two hours I decided to move into deeper water. The other house did as well. Neither of us even saw a blip on our Vexilars. I guess that is the way it goes. I think that warmer weather earlier last week brought a little action, which was shut down by the cold again this weekend. None the less, It was still fun. A Terrible day of fishing is always better than a good day of work!

A buddy and I fished Pit Lake this past Friday from 7 am to 1 pm. We used various sizes of airplane jigs and shiners. Two bites, but no fish.

This lake is very clear, you can watch fish at least 20 feet down, your jig usually further. Nearly every time I'm out there I see at least a couple fish. One thing I've observed is that all those little bites that you all aren't hooking are those little guys that have been dumped in there within the past few years. They can hardly fit that minnow in your mouth. Every once in a while, the larger trout will give you that same little tap, it could be a smack of their tail or their head just charging into it, but that fish will usually give you a catchable oppurtunity. If you keep getting those little taps, chances are it's just a youngin. A major mistake made on this lake is going too big with your jigs. I run about a 3 inch wabler and usually a walleye-sized demon, I usually only go bigger if I'm trying to attract. I've had days out there where me and Rollz have caught 20 or more of those little guys. Just keep moving around until you get into a nicer fish.

good fishin

I have been in a dark house on Pit where I was able to see my jig flash at over 70 ft! No kidding, I clocked the depth with my Vexilar.

I have caught a couple of those little ones, and boy are they small. But none the less, they are still fun to catch.

I really have not had much luck finding decent size on Pit. I mainly go there cause it is such a cool lake.

Try using a red and white Heddon Sonar. Jig it hard enough so you feel it flutter and drop it back. Has worked well for me and seems to pull them in from a distance.

    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
