February on Flathead Lake

The lake trout fishing on Flathead Lake remains GREAT!

The last couple of weeks we have averaged 15 fish in the boat each trip. Yesterday, the biggest fish was 38” long and 15.8 lbs. Today we boated 2 nice slot fish at 34” and cleaned 10 smaller fish, just right for the smoker.

What to use:

Flatfish on the bottom. Try the Mag lip from Worden’s, also the original flatfish in size T-50 or T-55 red/white, glow/white, silver/blue, and frog. Remember fish all these lures close to the bottom and very slow.


Try the flats off  Westshore State Park in 160’ of water. Try trolling south as you get into deeper water 200’.

February Fishing

The last couple of days on Flathead Lake was great fishing for lake trout on the flats for big Lakers. Yesterday we put 15 fish in the boat, 3 nice slot fish and one just over the slot.

190 ft. of water tight to the bottom is where these fish stage this time of year. These fish are feeding on Lake Superior White Fish.


What to use;

Try trolling big flatfish from Worden’s in the T50, T55, and T60. Try the luminous, white belly red top, fire tiger, luminous chartreuse.

Also the Mag Lip in the same colors. Troll these lures slow at 1 mph on the bottom!

The boat ramp atWestShoreStateis open and the dock is in the water.
