Recent Trout Lake Reports?

6 posts in this topic

Anybody been into Trout recently? Four of us are headed in Wednesday morning. For us Trout seems to be either really good or a tougher bite. The bordering lakes seem more consistent. However the average size on Trout cannot be beat.

Thanks,

WG

Trout should be starting to really heat up for walleyes. I was there last weekend but we ended up only fishing for Bass and Pike.

Ah, I miss pike fishing on trout. There are some absolute monsters in there. I have no doubt there's a few state records swimming around. If you don't mind me asking, did ya get 'em on the north, south, east, or west side of the lake? Don't need any particular spots, i'd actually prefer if you didn't, and I won't be heading up there, i'm just curious.

Got the Pike in the North Arm (only place we fished on big trout!!!!!!)...Ive always wanted to try the portage bay, but never do...I bet thats the best spot on the lake for Pike.

It's not that great, mostly smaller pike. It's a little too cloudy compared to most of the lake. Stick to the north end most of the time. Don't be afraid to move around though. There's some deep cabbage beds on a couple of spots in the lake that aren't very big, maybe 50 yards long, but they can be spectacular! I've also heard of some guys getting some monsters out deep while they feed on suspended ciscoes, but I've never tried it.

Ive had one take a bass sideways in its mouth in about 45 feet of water on the east side of Sioux Pine. The northern was about 25 lbs by my estimate. Would have been the biggest of my life had it been netted, photo'd and released. Its spooky seeing a fish that big rising up from 15 feet down in that clear water.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
