    Lake Trout Fishing:

    If you are new to Lake Trout fishing then we can easily assume that many of the things that you have heard about Lake Trout are not accurate. It's a fish that is surrounded by negative folklore and because of this it's a resource that has not been enjoyed by all.

    Lake Trout are a ton of fun to catch and they taste fantastic. They have a mild flavor that is far superior to Rainbow Trout or Salmon. They are a hard fighting predator and can reach great sizes. The secret is to know how to catch them with light equipment. In the old days people used lead-core line and heavy bait-walkers but if you read our light tackle Lake Trout tips you will become an expert at catching Lake Trout and all you need is your Walleye or Pike rod.

    People that are into Lake Trout fishing often become fanatical because it's so much fun. Bringing a big heavy hard-fighting fish up from the depths almost feels mystical and the anticipation of seeing what you have on your line will get your heart pounding. Even though most of the Lake Trout you will catch in our area will be between 2 and 6 pounds, that does not mean you can't hook into something much bigger. Basket Lake and Little Basket Lake, where our outpost cabin is located, is a lake system that has enough food and is big enough to support trout over 30 pounds. There are many other lakes within an hour's drive of camp that have great Lake Trout fishing. If staying at our main camp, we highly recommend making a day-trip for lakers. If you are planning on staying at out outpost camp, you should bring some Lake Trout spoons.

    How many Lake Trout you can catch in a day is impossible to predict. They are extremely sensitive to changes in pressure and if a low-pressure system comes into the area they may stop feeding for days. Generally if we have had nice sunny weather with high pressure the trout will be biting. Some days the small ones are hitting and bringing in 10 trout in an afternoon would be a great day. When the really big trout are feeding the smaller ones slow down. If conditions seem perfect and the small ones are not biting, then be prepared to get an old lunker on your line. A big Lake Trout is something you will never forget for the rest of your life. Each year guests report catching-&-releasing trout over 10 pounds.
