Large Lake Trout
In the early spring the trout are in shallower water, and fishing tactics are simplified.
With so many deep cool lakes, Lake of the Woods, White Fish Bay, Crow Lake are excellent choices for lake trout fishing. Cast or troll in the shallows around 10-15′ in the spring. In mid-summer the trout go deep to between 40-100′.
TROUT – 7’- 9’ trolling rod with level wind reel and 10-14# test line, (1/4-3/4 oz.) and flutter spoons or suttons (bl/slvr, wh, chart), cow bells and flies, husky jerks and other cranks in blue/silver. 6’ jigging rod with spinning or level wind and 10# test line, 1/2 – 2 oz. jigs (white, chartreuse, pink, blue, and gold ) swedish pimples, sonars, buzz bombs, zingers and cleos.
