I went to crossswinds with two other people last weekend. The fishing was great, between the three of us we caught around 20 lake trout. we stayed at the lodge at the north end of the lake owned by Kirk Wilson. casting from shore in front of the lodge produced most of the fish. we caught a few trolling and casting from the boat into the schools of smolt. We just looked for flocks of birds diving into the water and casted right into the middle of it. Each time it produced fish. Nothing big though(3-6lbs) Its a trip worth taking again.
