Here are the results of an online search for Mackinaw Trout:

"lake trout or Mackinaw trout or Great Lakes trout or salmon troutLarge, voracious char (Salvelinus namaycush) found widely from northern Canada and Alaska to New England and the Great Lakes, usually in deep, cool lakes. They are greenish gray and covered with pale spots. In spring, 5-lb (2.3-kg) lake trout are caught in shallow water; in summer, fish of up to 100 lbs (45 kg) are trolled in deep water. Lake trout were virtually eliminated from the Great Lakes by the sea lamprey, which entered through the Welland Canal in the 1930s."

Those do look nice smoked up.

A Mackinaw and Lake trout are the same thing, it just depends where you're at. When I lived in Washington, they were mackinaw, when I lived in n. california, they were lake trout. Like a Mountain Lion vs. cougar
