Splake

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

Can anyone share any tips on catching splake? I've done some fishing for rainbows and lakers but not splake. Any information would be helpful, oh, and the lakes you've fished for them, too. Thank you,

Chad

have caught splake anywhere from 5 to 80 foot of water. Used to fish Kramer lake -start in 12 ft and work my way out to deep water. When fishin deep you need electronics cause the fish would come in any where from 50 ft to 10 ft below the ice. I used brined minnows (1/2) or waxies on a small jiggin spoon. Fished a lake up by Ely a few weeks ago and caught everything in 5 to 9 ft. of water. Haven't fished Kramer for a couple years but we used to pick up browns now and then too. I would have to say that most poeple fish splake in 20 ft or less.

If you don't mind traveling a little farther north, Larson lake near Effie has some dandy splake. The state record came out of there a few times.

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
