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.

    • Upsize to #2 mepps. They cast much farther than the smaller sizes. With that being said, most (if not all) the trout have probably been caught out of the lake. If there is any trout left to be caught, I’d make sure to be there early in the morning as soon as the park opens.
    • So I am new to ATV’s and was doing some research on tracks for ATVs. I live in North Idaho and for winter and spring we have tons of snow and mud to deal with so was thinking tracks might be a good idea. So I found this site helpful https://www.atvtracks.net/track-systems and  local for me but wanted to get others opinions on what they use? I noticed they have two brands one Camso and one Kimpex what do y’all prefer?
    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there.
