Laker Love….

While most trout anglers aren’t big fans of the Grey Trout.  I personally am a big fan of the Lake Trout, great battles and usually eager feeders.  Not much matches the strike on a jigging spoon in deeper water by a quality laker.

Joined by a few fellow anglers today on one of our stocked lakes in Eastern Ontario, we hit the ice in -23 temps.  The sun rose and made for a real pleasant day on the ice.  While the bite was slow today I kept my head down and kept jigging.  I was setup right on the edge that slides from 40 to 80 FOW.  I jigged in the 35 to 40 foot range.  A nice big red bar appeared on the Vexilar and after a 5 minute dance this laker gave me the bite I was looking for today.  The tug of war was a good one.


A great natural laker that stretched the tape to just under 30 inches.
