My best advice for Trout Lake would be to pick an area and look for inside hook type structure. I personally like the area in the bay by the old Ryeberg Barn on the southeast side. I don't get up there nearly as often as I wish I could but always seem to find fish in that area. It's almost impossible to fish the lake without good electronics. I have seen times where a change in 2 feet of depth has resulted in the difference of a limit of eaters versus nothing. The fish in that lake really relate to structure. I like yourself would love to hear more of what the local experienced anglers do to catch walleyes out there. We have caught many big fish...but sometimes struggle to find numerous eaters. I don't get to fish during the prime times as farm work comes first.

Anybody else have any helpful hints????

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
