Trophy Lake Trout!

On January 11th Clint, Darv, and I headed West to target some Lake Trout. We spent most of the day marking fish in deep water, we tried all different types of lures, jigs, and spoons and we couldn't get them to commit. After a few hours of this behavior there was a drastic change - all of these lookers turned into biters! We wound up putting together a solid day and caught over 30 in an hour or two. The highlight was definitely when Clint pulled up a 9lb Lake Trout - we decided that made the trip worthwhile. What happened next we never would have guessed - on that very next drop he hooked up a larger fish. After a 4-5 minute fight up came a 36" 17.25lb Laker! I decided not to include any of the other catches in the video because the 16-20" Lakers look like absolute miniatures after those two beasts!

Check out the video: Giant Laker Video

What a hog! Another great video and you couldn't ask for a better back drop. I love the mountains in the background when your punching holes. How deep were you fishing? Can't say I have ever targeted lakers but they sure look like a whole lot of fun.

We started at 40ft, bumped out to 50ft, 60ft, and then 75ft. That's where the fish in this video came from. They were biting a foot or two off the bottom.

I love the clear ice with those dinosaurs swimming below. Those are some old fish... Wouldn't be surprised if they are 25 years or older. Great video!
