Lake Trout Teeth
The lake trout is a charr, not a salmon trout, having the characteristic lack of teeth on the front of the bone in the roof of the mouth, this being the most striking difference between the charr and the salmon trout.
The lake trout is a charr, a large and coarse one to be sure, when compared with the more- familiar and finer grained speckled brook trout, but, nevertheless, a charr. If your trout has teeth on both the front and rear of the roof of the mouth it is a salmon trout; if only on the rear of the mouth it is a charr.
Occasionally the lake trout attains a very large size, sometimes over one hundred pounds; but thirty pounds may be safely stated as the heaviest fish the angler may hope for weighing between twelve and twenty-five pounds are taken quite commonly where the fishing is ordinarily good, but the average weight of fish taken by anglers is in the vicinity of eight pounds.
