Jigging for Lakers
Summer Lake Trout fishing is our favorite. The Lake Trout move into the
deep water sometime after July 1st. The fish congregate in the morning
and evenings at underwater reefs and shelves.
The most productive method is to move from hole to hole staying no longer that
45 minutes. We use 2, 3 and sometime 4 ounce jigs. The main colors
are white, red, black and orange, but almost anything could work. For
bait we use pork rinds and two tail power baits. You cast or just drop
the heavy jig and let it go all the way to the bottom. A good hard pull
followed by fast winding produces the best results.
It is an incredible feeling when a 10lb or larger Lake Trout stops your hook
dead in its tracks and strips out your line as it makes a run for the deep
