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

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

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
