    Another great day fishing

    4 more lake trout to share between 3 families. 38 lbs in total. I want to smoke some if it warms up enough. Fished from 7:30am till 3:30 pm. But it was worth it. I caught the two biggest(chest swelled up) and my betterhalf caught the other two. LIG


    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.
    The worst day slinging lead is still better than the best day working.
    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because thatís the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    Google videos on ice fishing for lake trout. Then spend $1000 of dollars on stuff.
    14lb, 13lb, 7lb and 4lb.

    Hope to go out again if the white out conditions stop.

    The 7lb to 12lb lake trout are the best eating. I have yet to smoke one. They are rich in oil and fat so they smoke very well. I have smoked 100's of pounds of other fish in the past 20 years, just not lake trout.
    I rate them in the top 5 fresh water fish.

    Now I need some manual downriggers to go after them in the summer.
