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.

    • So reviving a dead thread ..

      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

    • 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? 🤷‍♂️
