LAKE TROUT FISHING

16 posts in this topic

HEY F.M.ERS,

WENT TO A NEW LAKE, 30 MILES BY SLED 1 WAY, STARTING OFF ON CROW LAKE BY NESTOR FALLS. CAUGHT A LIMIT (6) FOR 3 GUYS, AND REAL NICE AVERAGE 6 TO 10 LBS., USING WHITE TUBES & SMALL JIGGING SPOONS. BEST DEPTH WAS 40 FEET. I KNOW WE HAVE ALOT OF GUYS ON THIS FORUM WHO LIKE TO FISH TROUT, SO I FIGURED I WOULD POST THIS.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Hey FM,

I'd like to hook up with you on your next adventure out there. Those trout are fun to tangle with. Nice size fish also!

For me, the thrill of laker fishing does not compare to other winter species. Its also hard to beat being on some of those lakes in the winter, as well. FISHMEISTER;I've probably been close or on the lake you fished. Crow is 35-40 miles west of our cabin. Did you guys have to deal with bad ice around some of the creeks? The last time I got up was opener, just counting the days for the next excursion President's Day weekend.

HI C.N.G.,

YOU ARE THE MAIN REASON I POSTED THIS THREAD, CAUSE I KNEW TROUTING WAS YOUR PASSION. THE ICE WAS EXCELLENT...NO SLUSH. SOME OF THE LAKES WERE BUMPY FROM DRIFTING SNOW, BUT NO PROBLEMS OTHERWISE., INCLUDING INLETS & OUTLETS.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Hello Guys, One quick question I fish a few Lake Trout lakes on the Canadian side off of Sand Point lake. I have just a conservation license which from what I read it allows you to have 1 trout. Isn't the other more expensive liscense allow you to keep 2 lake trout, but only if you stay over night in canada. Please let me know if this is right or not. If not next year I'm going to buy the other licence to be able to keep 2 fish. Thanks guys

HI DOCK BOY,

WITH A CONSERVATION LICENSE YOU CAN ONLY KEEP 1, AND I DO BELIEVE YOU ARE IN GREEN ZONE WHICH ALLOWS YOU TO KEEP 1 TROUT NO MATTER THE LICENSE. THESE LAWS DO NOT PERTAIN TO CANADIANS.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

HI C.N.G.,

LAST TIME I FISHED LAKERS WAS A COUPLE WEEKS AGO & MY BROTHER FISHED WITH MY BUDDIES THE WEEKEND BEFORE LAST, AND THEY DIDN'T HAMMER THEM, BUT DID FILL OUT. MY BEST LURE SO FAR THIS YEAR HAS BEEN A SMALL SPOON, ANOTHER DID BETTER ON WHITE TUBES, AND I KNOW MY BROTHER WAS USING SALMOS. CISCOS HAVE DONE NOTHING, ANOTHER THING I WOULD SUGGEST, IS BRING A FILLET KNIFE., WHEN YOU CATCH A TROUT OPEN UP THAT BELLY & SEE WHATS IN IT, THERE IS NO BETTER BAIT THEN THE ONE THEIR FEEDING ON. BEST DEPTH HAS BEEN 35 TO 65, BUT I GUESS THAT IS PRETTY NORMAL.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

It's the size of a great lake but a little northwest of there - maybe 1500 air miles.

Thanks FM. Last time up we caught some real nice ones right at sun-up. They were full of small cisco. It looks like the weather might be stable for a few days. Good Luck!

I will confirm, the lakes are very bumpy...Being prepared for it and packing light really helped. We had some really good fishing. The highlight: three trout caught (& released) from one hole in 30 minutes, 12#, 12.5#, and 10#. (12 FOW) The biggest caught by my son, his first laker. Anxious to get back up in a couple weeks.
