Anybody out there fish Pokegama for Lake Trout? I'm interested in finding out what time of year is worth-while, how do you fish for them, etc...
I was there last year in the summer and marked alot of fish deeper. Are those lakers I was marking?

Alot of pokey's big fish stay in the deep. I have been told it has alot to do with the smelt population they don't have to go far to hunt. I have heard of some people running downriggers in the deep holes fore walleyes in the warmer months.

AH! That would explain it. Thanks for the info. I'm thinking of goin' up over the 4th. The wife likes the clear blue water and sandy beaches. Myself?... I just need to go fishin'.

I fish the lake quite a bit and find and have had some success with large northerns (8-12lb) and few large walley (up to 10lb) by long lining deep running cranks in the 2.5-3.5 mph range. I have yet to catch a lake trout. I think a down rigger is probably needed to have a realistic chance of catching one. The steep drop off by the golf course and the 20-40 foot shelf at the north end of Sherry arm have worked for me. Try black over silver color paterns in a #9 shad rap or #12-14 deep husky jerk. I'll be fishing the lake alot too around the 4th. Hope this helps and, unless its a once in a life time trophy, I hope everyone practices C&R of those rare big fish.

I have caught 7 or 8 Lakers out of there downrigging. Most around 8#, 1 - 16#. Some big gators also. They all seem to like green/white spoons best. Have caught a couple on a #13 silver Husky Jerk. 35-50 feet down over 70+ feet seems best. Usually go July and August when wallys slow down or I have just a couple hours to fish. You can go a long time between trout though.

I was wondering if Pro-V or someone else could give me some recomendations about downriggers. Make, model etc. I don't need anything too fancy but something reliable and user friendly. I am looking at Canons Uni-troll for $250 or so. Any comments?

Pro-V, I'm also wondering what kind of speeds you troll at. Thanks!

I,m running a pair of Cannon EasyTroll II's. I usually troll about 1.6-2.5 mph. Never seems to be a pattern though. Caught at all times of day,cloudy and bright,calm or windy. I just try to watch depth of bait and adjust accordingly. Running 100' setback as they seem to be quite spooky.
GKL, those Unitrolls are nice to spread out your lines more if you don't mind the price.They also come standard with swivel bases which is handy.
