Lake trout and Char tips needed.
Im trying to dig up any hints I can about fishing for Lake trout or the Char they stock in lakes.
I have a scanoe, fishfinder, downrigger wich are 3 items I think you need. Seems these fish live deep. I have tried in Kenai Lake, finger Lake and Lynne Lake. I caught one small Lake trout of of Kenai lake (fishing from the bank) and I think I had a char on at Lynne.
Mostly All I have done is troll those long flasher things with a spinner at the end, Wich I think is going down about 8 to 10 feet.
figured the char out. They are down pretty deep (25 feet) once you find them they are not that hard to catch. They are not fighters however and were kinda boring to bring in. I even caught a couple of 20 inchers that were pretty ho hum. I also caught some 16 inch rainbows in the same lake that were much more impresive in terms of battle skills. Not sure if Im going to pursue those char anymore. Ill see how they taste then decide.
