    It really depends where the fish are and where you start and finish. Experiment,experiment,experiment that is part of the game , that is part of the fun, ,different lures ,depths ,times and positions . What type of food available for the fish in that lake or area . Dig deep in the the past posts for tips ,watch the vids by Kardinal 84 , cant go wrong. I like 10" to 40", tubes , swim bait , big spoons , and some minnow like lures that seem to catch walleye and trout in the states , so far working for me here in A.K.

    Tube jigs and swim baits. 12 feet to 42 feet. Some people fish shallow some fish deep. I was fishing shallower

    Wow Kwackkkillncrew, 14 in a day is an AWESOME day! Way to hammer them!!! Some nice ones to boot! Thanks for the mention Love em and Leave em (great name by the way though I tend to lean on the side of meat fishing but release 99% of the trout and char) ...

    I will post a blog post after this one about the setup I personally use on Big Lake. Otherwise My preference is to fish a LOT shallower than most folks because I LOVE to sight fish and you can't see much past 15 ft deep in Big Lake. If I was fishing a tournament, I would probably opt for something in the 20 to 35 ft range for Big Char. Rainbows will be shallower at 10 to 15 feet. But the Lake has a very diverse topography and they really can be just about anywhere.

    The main baitfish in the lake for char and burbot are salmon smolts that tend to run 4 to 8 inches long. For the rainbows, they seem to have more sticklebacks in them anything. I typically run big spoons or leech type jigs, swim baits or small rubber minnows under a dodger. The dodger set up is most effective in shallow water since its easier to set the hook when you can see the fish. Don't want to hijack this thread so I will start another post.
