Lake trout north of the border

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone out there that does any lake trout fishing in any inland lakes or those across the border in ontario. I am going up there the 13-18 of june. The lake we are staying on has excellant laker fishn. Just wonderin what all I should bring. Space is limited so my downriggers are out of the question. The guy at the lodge says they use 1 oz jigs with cut bait on them. I am having a hard time finding some decent 1 oz jigs. Most of them have a real light hook(the same hook that is on a 1/4 or 3/8 oz jig. I think a little beefier hook would be better. Any suggestions?

You can winch for em. use an oz 2oz wieght and trail a spoon behind it and slow troll. It isn't the most sporting but it puts fish in the freezer.

Also try a number 13 rapala.

If you ice fish in the winter for walleyes then try some of those big jigging spoons. Tip them with some kind of meat.
They should work as good as those jigs.

Did you ask if they sold those jigs at the resort? Hopefully they do. That way you can still get some of those jigs.

Northland makes bucktail jigs in 1 oz and heavier sizes. I have a couple. They come with stinger trebles, and work really well for big pike when they're in deeper water, tipped with sucker.

Should work just fine for lakers, too. The hooks are strong enough to use with tow straps.
