Sure, lake trout get much bigger than this – but pretty cool when I wasn’t even supposed to be fishing today. The 27 incher was an incredible fight on my 6-weight Winston and old Ross Arius Reel. The mackinaw are close to shore at the moment because of the recently cooled water temps. I was using my Scientific Anglers Stillwater line and hand crawling two Vladi Nymphs on 0X Flouro.
Check out the new fly rod species section on my website. Not only will this section list all the species I’ve taken in fresh and salt water, but eventually you will be able to click on each fish and find tips on how to catch them. This will take years to complete but lake trout is up and running.
