Early season lakers in Trout lake?

6 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone has any tips for fishing lakers in Trout lake earlier in the season. I think we are heading up there during the week after opener. We are going for walleyes but I would love to catch a laker or two.

Try casting spoons on the rock reefs that top out at less then 20 feet.

I like silver colored spoons best, but don't hesitate to try other colors. Doctor Spoons or Red Eye Spoons work well.

You are welcome!

Also remember that trout like to feed at mid-day! 9:30am until around 1:00pm have been my best times.

Chase walleyes and bass in the morning and evenings and trout at mid-day!

Hey Cliff -

Congrats on guiding the Lt. Gov... I for one am going to try to stay away from Vermilion for atleast a day because of the chaos. Would Trout be as productive during the Walleye opener for Trout as it would be a week later? Give me a guess. I have downriggers if that would help. Thanks

FrazerBayMan,

Thanks! smile.gif

I would guess the trout fishing would be about the same.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
