Fall Lakers

Recommended Posts

I am going to be heading to Red Lake Ontario in early September and am looking for some advice on how to hook up on some lake trout. I have never caught one and really have no real idea where to start. I have read that they go shallow in the fall and can be caught trolling spoons. I have also heard large minnows in deeper water are productive. Any help is appreciated.

Hey ScottZ-
I can't say I know much about catching fall lakers but there is a great infisherman video about lakers that goes into some detail about seasonal patterns. Your local library or video store might have it to rent vs. buying. Good luck and tightlines!

i don't know much about in the fall like you say, but i normally fish in summer and winter for them, and fish in fairly deep depths, 25-60 ft. or more. for bait i like to use either ciscos or large shiners on a jig, other wise i have the best luck with a large white tube jig, i have seen an in-fisherman video where they are fishing on great bear lake up in i think NW territories, and they were catching them in 15ft and shallower, if you can find that video i'd get it, they catch some reall pigs

I checked out the video last night and it gave some pretty good info. It sounds like if the water temp is in the low 50's the fish should start to move up into the shallows to begin there spawning ritual. I would think that the water should be starting to cool by early September when I will be going up there. Thanks guy's!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
    • Go to Milaca unclaimed Freight and for the pulley 8to 1 lift. Cheap and easy  
    • Had to go back and see if it was you that posted this one: 😀
    • World famous. Browned pork, Italian seasoning, onions, garlic. Then hash browns with cheese.
    • Season is young yet fellas, hopefully it stays dry for a while, we ran into lots of water and crops as well. The kid dropped the only rooster we saw on Saturday , lots of hens though. The neighbor out that away saw a small brood of chicks 2 weeks ago, real late hatch but hopefully they came out ok in the rain last week.
    • Spent a week grouse hunting around Grand Rapids. Left on Saturday Oct 13 because I tired of running into Ruffed Grouse Society yahoos using Minnesota birds to bring in $$$ so they can buy more white pickups with Ruffed Grouse Society painted on the side driven by PHD's that are clueless as to why there was such a disparity between the 2017 drumming count and the actual number of birds on the ground. Saw or heard a total of 12 grouse and 7 woodcock for the week. My experience was the same as knoppers.   
    • Saw nothing yesterday. Too many crops and too much water everywhere.
