Tried a new lake today for lakers. Very deep lake and we were in 100 foot depth were we fished. There are big trout in this lake however we did not latch on to any today. We lost a few good size ones as it is hard to set the hook 100 feet down. Both of them spit the hook about 30 feet of bottom even with a stinger hook added. Was a little cool out when we first started -20 then warmed up some. Wind picked up and we forced to seek shelter out of the wind to continue fishing. Snow is all but gone off the lake but plenty in bush. 30 inches of ice still on lake. Temps will hit the plus side for the next week in day time so will hit the ice again on Sunday for another round.

Wow, 30 inches of ice yet! :shock: Those look like nice sized lake trout you caught Wolf. There is a lake about 50 miles east of me that has lake trout, landlocked Atlantic Salmon and landlocked striped bass that I plan on hitting soon but our trout season is currently closed and opens April 15th.

The ice thickness is common this time of year and will diminish with sun and warm temps very quickly with no snow on ice. Temps play a big part as to how fast it goes. Most times the ice is out 2nd week of May.
Our trout season closes Sept 31 and opens Jan 1st. Hope you get out and catch a few trout.
Brad was out again today and picked up 7 trout at another trout lake this morning then stopped off at a walleye lake and picked up a dozen.

WAT royalty is always welcome at Camp Winky! I even added a window above the area the new cook stove will be sitting. Now I am like a "homemaker" who can look out the window while they prepare a meal. :lol:
