    lake trout

    Ice is finally thick enough, as I walk out 7, 7, 5 and 4" far enough. Friday's fish was 34" 14lbs with a 12" rainbow and a 8" rainbow inside it. Pot bellied pig. Caught and ate a 27 incher wed.

    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.

    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"

    Nice work - that's a fatty! What were you using to catch them and how far down were you catching them? Horsefly lake?

    There is only two lakes with lake trout near Horsefly. Pick one!! 50 feet of water on a swimbait attached to a jig you can no longer get.
    Anything looking like a kokanee works. Some are fairing well on 3 and 4" silver buzz bombs.
    I will wait a week before going back out. Luner mooner is real.

    Curious, I haven’t caught lake trout, or so long ago I can’t remember.
    How do they taste?
    Comparsble to Rainbows, better or worse?

    Re: lake trout

    Get a new copy of the regs. There are new lakes where no ice fishing is allowed.
    Lake trout have more fat/oil than rainbows. But all those omega 3's are good for you. I could eat lake trout 4 days a week if I had them.
    Some other lake changes are barbless hooks. Catch 4 get one up to the hole.
    Some times I catch fish on small 4" swimbaits and other times they want a 6" white tube jig.
    Skunked yesterday.
    I'll try and lay out my arsenal and snap a pick. I have them drying now so they don't rust.

    I too look forward to the pic, as myself and my 10 year old son want to get into the lakers..
