Wheres All The Pout!

Recommended Posts

Guest

Was fishing all weekend from Thursday eve through Saturday eve looking for a few pout for a first ever pout boil and broil! Between 15 of us that were fishing we only got 3 keeper size pout and 3 little tiny ones.Now I know some would think we are nuts but we have the walleyes down but we wanted to try something different Sunday evening after the Packer game?

Ok, what does a guy use to catch Pout? I can say I have never actually fished for them. But, when we had this discussion a couple weeks back no one could tell me a bait that really works good for pout. Since you actually went and fished for them I would be interested in hearing what you use.ScottS

Big ol juicy fat head on a gem eye jig, under a slip bobber. Bobber fishing is the only way to go. Try fishing out by liberty island late into the night.

BigPointer53, try fishing the southeast corner of the lake near Mac's Twin Bay. I was there two weekends ago and caught more pout than I wanted to catch. 18 feet of water. Use a flutter spoon tipped with a fathead. I had a rattle reels set up in the house and they went off all night long. Average pout weighed 4 pounds with two that pushed 7 pounds. Best time was 2am. Good Fishing, Matt.

Many of the lake trout lakes I've fished have pout in them and often, when it gets dark i'll stay out a little longer and try for them. One thing I have found to work is using large laketrout jigs with a smashed fathead or 2 and pound the bottom with it. My favorite is a 3/4 oz. Bucktail jig by Northland. I mash 2 fatheads in my hand and put bouth of them on. Then I'll drop it down and pound the bottom of the lake with it. I've tried it on Mille Lacs and it works well there too. Of course cut bait laying on the bottom works well too.

I don't really know why you want to catch pout, but if you do chum the holes with all of your dead minnows. Then put on something big that glows and you'll have all the pooters that you want!!
