You will be fishing for mostly Lake Trout with the occasional King or Coho in the mix.

Best way to fish that time of year is in the thermocline (or just above) with meat (smelt).

The flasher/fly combo is best, 1.8 mph for Lakers 2.4 mph for combo plate. Run some spoons down as far as you can, if you don’t have many downriggers.

Best time to fish is when you can...I would bet your captain will place you on fish regardless of the time of year.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
