This is one of the worlds greatest lake trout fisheries and it is not that far away. So pack up your boat and downriggers to go check it out for yourself. It is a beautiful lake with frequent aerial shows as fighter jets fly in formation over the lake in and out of the air weapons range. With a fish finder you'll be able to locate the fish and troll at the appropriate depth to catch them. A variety of lures with help you land a good number of fish. Some of the best spoons are the Williams Wobbler and Whitefish. The Luhr Jensen Manistee is also a local favorite. You can also pull jointed Rapalas and other floating crankbaits. Bait really isn't needed as these fish are very willing to hit a lure. Trolling speed should be varied from 1.5 mph to 3 mph for best results.
