I have been chasing this fish for 3 years. Was unable to get a net on one. After an epic 40 min battle, this guy found his way to the net. Thank my brother ...more tony for the help I can could not have done alone. L
Thanks everyone!!! On Lake Michigan we have five big game fish, lake trout, steelhead, brown trout, coho salmon, and the King salmon. The king was the hard one ...more for me. Now I'm on way to a grand slam this season.
This reminds me of the day I forgot my net at home. I trolled up 9 Lakers one of which was about the same size as that one. The other was even bigger I lost both ...more at the boat. The biggest one I fought for 38 minutes. My buddy Ted passed me 3 times and asked if I hooked another one. I said nope same one. I could not get it off the bottom. Finally had it to the boat and no net. The fishes mouth where it was hooked was tore, he or she made a final head shake and bye bye the fly popped out. Both would have been my PB, I slammed my pole down and screamed bloody murder. So congrats on that monster. A lot of people say Lake trout don't fight. They have never hooked a real monster.
This lake is vary difficult to fish. I have been fishing here for years. Early spring we troll crank bait in shallow water. Summer we use crawler harness in the ...more weeds and drop off. Look at the fish map and look for long shallow runs 10 foot of water or less
Yes I did. Going to try to hit flint tomorrow but may not be able to get out there until afternoon which is not a good time for that lake typically on the ice. I ...more tried to post some gills today but doesn’t seem like i am doing it right because I can’t see that they are posting. They were all over anything black or purple for me today.
