Went out to Cold Lake for some Lake Trout action twice in January of 2014. Turns out we just did not hit it right either day on the ice. The first day only managed to catch one fish period. That was the only bite as well. This video is from our second day out. The weather was awesome in the morning but a storm blew in and shut the fish right off. Caught two lake trout in the first 5 minutes then nothing. Super slow all day. They were hitting the smelt on the jaw jacker but getting off before I could even get to the rod. Lost a few short strikes and then hooked up on the last one in the late afternoon to avoid a skunk for myself. Slow day and most people left early. Didn't see anyone catching out there. Some one drove right through our set up and drove over a tip up breaking it in half. Why people drive right through a group of 6 people on the ice i'll never know, but several did it out there. Please respect others out on the ice, keep your distance and happy fishing!
