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.

    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
    • All a byproduct of the MDDI. 
    • Seasoned up burgers and smoked cheese for a topping.
    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
