My best trip ever (caspian)
« on: Mar 06, 2018, 07:38 PM »
*disclaimer* I will not be giving info on where I was I caspian I promised I wouldnít tell.


So Iíll start my tale 2 days prior. Me my dad and brother decided to spend some quality time together and decided to jig for lakers as weíve heard itís a blast. Well we fished till 12ish and left my old man being the only one to catch any (he got 2 keepers). I however was determined to catch one after watching him catch them because they seemed to put up a good fight. So yesterday I decided I was going today and was going to catch me a lake trout. I Got there early around 5 and decided to go try and find some smelt for bait..... welll that didnít work as I misjudged how far out I was and drilled through and hit the bottom of my auger off bottom (still cuts just not as good). At this point the sun had come up and I could t find any snelt when I got a message from an acquaintance Iíd been talking to on Facebook. She said I could join her so when she got to the lake we set off and hadnít arrived at the spot 10 mins when I hooked a small laker not bad but I wanted a good one so I moved to hole after hole not getting many looks until I was looking on my screen and saw it a red mark so I dropped my jig down and the chase began Iíd drop down heíd follow Iíd go up heíd go up and up and BOOM! He smashed it! And let me tell you I was using a UL st croix with maybe 4-6 lb test and that reel was a screaming. I felt like I was hooked on to a train Iíd get maybe 5 cranks in and he would take it all back out and then some. finally after a few minutes I got him up a solid 19 inches. Well after that I caught one bigger at 21inches and I was ecstatic thus was my best day for lakers yet. However the day was to get better after a while the bite slowed and my new friend decided to check a few areas nearby. Well she promptly informed us that she was seeing fish so we quickly moved over and u
Started getting Em it seemed one after another for a while then they slowed down. At the end of the day I ended up with 20 fish caught 2 kept.hereís  some pics although I didnít get a photo of some as they were too small.





































i told myself id be back by 2 i guess i didnt factor in that the fish were biting

Laker slayer!  ;D Sounds like an excellent day on the ice. The trout bite gets tough this time of year, but when they're hungry, they're hungry! I can't imagine catching that many fish in one day, let alone on an UL rod. What a blast!  Thanks for sharing.

Where's the best place to park if we're going to be on foot? The ice here is getting pretty sketchy, so a road trip this weekend sounds like a good idea to me.
