June Bite is on

The fishing for large lake trout has been very good. The early morning bite has been the best time to target the larger fish.

Where; Fish deep, anywhere from 120’ to 200’. Fish the breaks where the depth has a sharp transition. Try the east side of the center bar.

What to use; The Original Flatfish from Worden’s Lures is a good old “go to bait”. Size, T-50 and T-55, T-60 are good sizes. Colors, try the white belly red top, luminous, and the rainbow pattern all work well, also the metallic silver blue scale. Remember fish these flatfish very slow .5 to 1.0 mph.

For the more numerous average size lake trout try the F-2 flasher from Silver Horde with a 23” leader to a #35 octopus squid (41/4”). Colors, try the #8179 green/white double glow spatter back, #8152, green/brown red combo, and #8161 white mother of pear.

Also the #0 dodger (21/2”x8”) in hammered chrome #013 or a hammered green/chrome ultra violet spatter back #792., green/brown red combo.Troll the dodger or flashers at 1.5 to 2.0 mph.

Also, spoons like the KF5H and top cat from silver Horde. Stay with the basic greens silver and reds.

Good Luck See You on the water
