tips for Trout Lake

Recommended Posts

Archer_22

Just wondering if any of you out there might have any tips or tactics for chasing lakers out on trout lake. I would like to give the lake a try this weekend, but I have never fished it before. I could use any advise. Thanks.

Archer,

take a look at the "driving of the whitefish chain" post a couple pages back. There's some general info. there pertaining to Trout.

Heres a tip for you. Stay away from Big Trout this weekend. The Crosslake Winter fest deal is this weekend and there having Ice racing on Big Trout this weekend. Its gonna be a zoo.... especially at the access. Unless you dont mind that kinda thing.

Looking at having "Boys weekend" out there Feb 9-11. Think Ice would be safe to drive, or should I plan on only wheeler traffic?

      Hello Friends   Well it appears our dock company will not be able to lift our dock this season (Frazer Bay/Smart's Bay area) due to his lifting barge only being in this area first weekend in October and we like to keep the dock in until after MEA (this year ending October 21). Any suggestions? It's a pretty simple A Frame with a ladder and an L. I know I could do it myself, but have always preferred to have someone else do it.   Thanks for any insight

      The panfish tip above is a good tip for Webb. I grew up fishing that lake and I'd say good luck! I haven't caught anything worthwhile in the boat on Webb in years. Tips vary based on species, but the points are good and look for the "hidden treasures"

      Curious what that cost to have it surveyed if you don't mind sharing.

      Questions. Would you like something on a motor route. Stick to or fish smaller lakes. Travel distance. How many days.

      If you have an aluminum boat and open access to bottom of the hull, you can just set the transducer in a little puddle of water inside the boat.  The signal of a working unit will read just fine through the hull.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.
