Default Lake Trout Advice anyone???

Hey Everyone!
I'm hoping to go for some Lakers in the near future. I was thinking LOTW, closer to Clearwater bay, or places near LongBow Lake. I'm a spoiled walleye fisherman, but want to try something different for a change! What lures should I look at into getting? Any tricks? What areas do I look for etc. Depths? Any info would be appreciated, and when I do go, I promise to report! Thanks everyone!

Pop over to the Manitoba Outdoors Magazine's current issue. Jason Hamilton just did a great article that will answer each and every one of your questions.

I will do exactly that. Thanks again! Any other tips or tricks would be appreciated. Just read on another post that Clearwater Bay Lake trout season is From May to September? I'm going to take a look at the regs as well. Ontario makes it so complicated. Bait rules fishing exlusions, hook rules etc... If anybody else wanted to read the article, here's the link http://manitobaoutdoors.ca/2013-issues/ ... akers.html


Thanks again

Yup, definitely need to study the regs closely, especially for that area. As you noted, Clearwater Bay is closed to ice fishing for lakers. What the regs are very unclear about is what exactly constitutes Clearwater Bay. There was a thread last year that had a map marked to show the regulated area. Basically, it is the large area north of Zig Zag and extending east, but search out that thread for a better description.

I am new to laker fishing too but live targets have been working on aggressive mid water fish. Flutter spoons caught finicky fish for me last time I was out and tubes have always worked for me when the fish are on bottom.

You gotta make em want it. Make em chase. Catching little fish on the bottom then reeling them up drives the big trout nuts. Jig like crazy all through the column.
