Reels and Hand Lines for Trolling Lake Trout

As for the practical side of deep-trolling, the matter of tackle, there are two methods in general use. You can use either a hand-line with a heavy sinker or you can employ a metal line, which sinks sufficiently deep by its own weight, on a fairly heavy trolling rod. The former method is distinctly the less sportsmanlike and desirable. The latter method, only recently introduced, makes a much better sport of lake trout fishing than it has ever been before. In detail the tackle for these two methods of fishing is as follows:

For trolling with the hand-line—in which manner it is to be regretted the greater share of lake trout fishing is still done—you will need a twisted linen line of twenty-one or twenty-four threads at least two hundred feet in length. The line, it should be stated, must be of rather large caliber in order to prevent its cutting the hands when in use. Cut off eighteen or twenty feet of the line at one end and tie in a triple action or "three-way" swivel at the point of cutting. To the third swivel tie about fifteen feet of line somewhat weaker than the main line; this is for the sinker and it must be weaker than the main line so that if the sinker is fouled the sinker line will break rather than the main line.
