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!

    • Fleet farm site has something called brushtox, looks like it is 61% triclopyr.  31 bucks a quart.
    • I think you should get one and we can go all over Burntside and Snowbank this winter in search of lake trout. Just keep your shirt on! 😀
    • Just don’t use crossbow when it’s above 80 or going to be above 80 or it kills the lawn as well. It’s a great product, spray on clover in the morning  and it’s brown by evening. 
    • Finally got to someone that does this for a living and well respected. Triclopyr at 16% with 34% 2-4-d is in a readily available product called Crossbow. He highly recommends it. Spot treat the weeds not the whole lawn. Weed b Gon max works great on the rest of the weeds. 
    • Well things are cooling down but the fishing over deep water continues to boat fish!  Didn't slay them but got 2 more eater's this weekend over the deep water trolling for about an hour and half towards sunset.  Benn using Rapala Shadow Raps as of late and have been impressed.
    • Need to take advantage before we play Boston and Washington . Be up by 4 or 5 games when we get to those series.
    • Did another round of cottage bacon ..... 10 days brining turning the package ever other day, rinse and rest overnight in the fridge, smoke and rest over night in the fridge, and then slicing. It is a long two week process, but well worth it! If you’ve never done it, I high recommend giving it a try! I did 4 pork butts and ended up with abound 20 lbs.... gave about half of it away already, but have 4 more butts ready to brine before winter!        
    • All puppies have been sold !
    • They need to take full advantage of the easier games coming up.  I would like to see them get about 5-6 games ahead again.
    • Well painting is getting there.  The fenders and swing arm/axles are fully painted but I only managed to get about half of the frame painted.  I will get it finished up this week.  I have too because I have a large load of rock coming to finish my driveway expansion so I have a place to park my fish house this winter haha.
