First Lake Trout

Recommended Posts

Well I got my first lake Trout yesterday on Grindstone. I was wondering, I have a few Rainbows to smoke can I smoke the Laker with them? Any special instructions or tips from anyone?

Hey you're supposed to be saying "YES I got my first laker, I'm hooked and I can't stop thinking about getting back out and catching more of those bad boys!"

C'mon I can't be the only one grin.gif Congrats on the laker!

Yeah you are right. I was pretty excited about it and I will be heading up again Tuesday to try and hit some more. Was going to go tomorrow but my wife is coming with and she doesn't want to drive that far. So yeah, I can't wait to get back out and hit some more. laugh.gif

Woohoo, second Laker Saturday on a very cold and windy day. Got him in 40 fow. Do they typically head deeper as winter season moves on? Caught it on a tip-up with a big shiner right on bottom. By the time I got to the flag all 60 yards of line was stripped. Good thing I had tied a good knot to the tip up spool.

You're on fire! We might have an addict on our hands after all. Congrats.

I have yet to see that lakers move into different depths at different times of winter. They pretty much just chase baitfish and other than looking at what structure they might use to cruise/hunt, you're best bet is just set up and see what happens. I'm biased to 50-60 fow.

grin.gif Congrats again, it is very exciting catching lakers. Just wait til you get into them jigging with artificials, The hit and set on a laker with artificial is something awesome. You do it once and I guarantee, the tip ups will be second string!!! Congrats again! A pic of a nice laker a buddy caught on artificial last winter. Keep after em. Brent Martinsonslaker.jpg

Here's a link on this site to a Deep Fried Lake Trout recipe. I promise you'll like it! You can smoke them and they are tasty too, but I personally wouldnt do it with Rainbows.

    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?  
    • Found a giant lichen orbweaver with prey and a Nordmann's orbweaver hanging around our deck.
    • I guess it depends what you are looking for. I just picked up 2 pairs of jeans for close to 50% off but this was also online and not a store.
